Re: Strange Smell from Propane Stove
propane itself is actually odorless, they use a "rotten egg" type odor additive for safety, may vary in different countries
like dyeing petrol
Good point, but the odor is still very identifiable. I don't believe the additive is actually sulfur, like rotten eggs, but it is foul like that. I've seen scratch and sniff cards to help identify it, as part of safety sessions. I bet local household propane dealers would have them, if the OP is unfamiliar. Of course, just pulling the hose off the bottle would let enough escape to smell it and compare.
If I had the OP's problem, I'd get an electric gas sniffer quickly. They aren't all that expensive.
