    I have no intention on doing this myself as i am a joiner,
    i would like to know any cons to putting a propane bottle to cooker gas pipe underground appose to having it running around my house wall, ?
    just some advice on the regulatons and the extra cost on materials would be much appreciated?
    i would assume it would have to go in a protective sleeve?
    does the cold effect gas like it does water?

    Yes it can be done, needs to be a min depth and other rules to apply depending on distance may be a idea to use TracPipe (S/Steel) flexible and would be NO joints under ground
