Yes or no?

Gas bottles are sitting outside on the ground with a chain tied to wall to stop them falling over.

I wouldn't have thought it necessary Dougie, the bottles are connected by rubber pipes to the regulator I guess?

No if they can't introduce a potential

Yes If they are connected to a copper pipe inside that distributes the gas to appliances (such gas appliances may have a gas ignition or be sitting next to class I appliances)

Would that allow the pipe to introduce a potential into the installation?

Wouldn't this be more a risk of exporting the 'earth' outside of the installation & hence the equipotential zone ..... aka the garden tap problem????
