Gas smells of parafin


Since about the 15th Decemebr my gas supply smells waxy when burned. At first I thought it was cleaning agents on the hob but the oven and grill also do it. It is getting weaker now but still present after 3 days.
Is it anything I should be worried about?

Please call the Gas Emergency helpline on 0800 111 999 ASAP so that they can advise on this further. Please also see the follwing link for what to do in a gas emergency; https://www.gassaferegister.co.uk/what-to-do-in-an-emergency/.

It could be due to the fuel mix changing slightly, but it’s always best to play it safe so please give the Gas Emergency number a call.
