Mexico Propane-charged A/C explodes

Comment: I heard a story a long time ago about a woman living in San Diego
who drove across the border to Tijuana to have her car's A/C serviced. She
was very pleased with the low cost and the remarkably efficient cooling
when she picked her car up. While waiting in line to cross the border back
into the US, the front of the car exploded. The Mexican shop had used
propane to recharge the A/C system, and the leak that caused the loss of
performance in the first place led to a combustible mixture filling the
engine compartment.
