This is an otherwise all-electric home with a propane powered fireplace. Aside from the obvious danger of striking the tank with a vehicle, are there any code cites I can use to require it's relocation to a safer area? It's a USDA_RD inspection on an existing dwelling. I can make requirements.

Under a carport roof is not considered "indoors".

Something to consider - that tank is considered a "point of transfer" and a running vehicle w/in 10' is an ignition source.

Who defines 'point of transfer'? Fuel Gas codes?

EDIT: Never mind. I found it. Thanks.
