It would still be wise to check the system for leaks. Of course, if you're pretty sure it is the end of the tank causing the odor, you could try operating the stove from a full tank. If you don't get the smell with a full tank, it is probably the end-of-the-tank issue that bushrat mentioned.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
