Coke can for water heater?
Sounds like something from Disney.
DO NOT MESS AROUND WITH LPG.
It is far bigger than you ever thought of being.
Actually, the water heater pilot lights can very easily be stopped from blowing out.
Take a small open cell gasket, such as the screen door gasket, and place it on the back side edge of the water heater door, on all four sides.
Seldom will the pilot ever again blow out, even when traveling.
Be careful when pulling into a gas station for a refill if you do this mod.
