Answer: 
Thank you SB for the question, As you may know fuel gases are odorized (rotten egg smell) so that their presence can be detected. If you detect a presence of gas by scent, do not use this device to confirm. This product is intended to test for gas leaks around plumbing joints, portable LP gas canisters, appliances, etc. If you detect gas by scent, ventilate the area immediately and move to a safe Read More

Answer: 
Dear jburkie625 - Because different gases have different chemical and thermal behaviors, the detection values of this sensor are reported as “LEL” (Lower Explosive Limit) and "HEL" (Upper Explosive Limit). The detector is calibrated to detect 10% +/-2 of the LEL and 20% +/-5 of the LEL for the low and high alarms respectively. Should you have additional questions on the performance of this product, Read More

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 35 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Worked well for about 10 minutes The sensor worked great and helped me detect a small leak in one of my gas fireplace fittings. After using it for about ten minutes around different areas, the unit shut off and would never power back on again. I tried fresh batteries, bit still no more beeps or smells for this little, cheaply made plastic stick. I'll obviously be returning it. Luckily I only really needed it for this quick job anyway. September 6, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by doesn't detect, always a yellow light, calibration sucks saw this in the store when getting gas fittings and thought it would be a great item to check connections... should of read the reviews first...bought this to check blk pipe line I'm putting in... put in new AA batteries, read directions n followed.. calibrated.. never got red or green, just a yellow light. putting it out in the open air = yellow light, no matter t he location I tested it was always a yellow light... not exactly what I'd call quality detection or helpful. will be returning tomorrow. rather disappointed for the price and the simplicity of the design, it should at least work. June 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simple to use, smart purchase I'm a reasonably skilled DIY guy. Automotive, simple electrical, gardening, etc. I believe in having the right tool for the task. With that as background, installing a gas range and working with gas line connections was a new challenge, if only because the downside of an error is ... pretty big. I studied up on the "how to" videos and confirmed that it wasn't technically difficult. The installation kits come with the leak detection liquid (which bubble conspicuously if there is a leak), but having a "sniffer" seemed like good insurance. Commercial devices are expensive, and overkill in this situation. This device is easy to set-up, calibrate, and use. I didn't test it (with an unlit burner for instance), but if you take it on faith that it works, it's the perfect tool for the homeowner who tackles this sort of task. June 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works with limitations After reading the mixed reviews on this product, I made sure to test mine enough to know it works for NG. One way is to let it calibrate outside, and then hold the wand close as you slightly loosen the flare nut to simulate a small leak. It should detect within a couple of seconds. Tighten the nut and see how long it takes to get a green light again. Comparing with your nose should give you an idea of sensitivity. Other methods such as blasting the sensor with gas is a bad test as you would never need it in that scenario. The value of this sensor is for detecting small leaks that you can reach with this sensor, but not easily with your nose. Also for attic or crawlspace where you will be wearing a mask. The wand makes a different type of beep when it detects a leak which is handy when reaching inside a wall were you cannot see the lights. June 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by calibration incapable The device could not obtain a "clean" calibration reading It was made in China, so I'm actually not surprised it didn't work May 25, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worthless Installed a new gas range and wanted to double check my connections so i picked this detector up. Put brand new batteries in and powered on out in the fresh air. Checked all the fittings and no alarms. Then I decided to fire up a burner and see what an alarm sounds like. Nothing! When placed right next to a burner spewing gas at full force this devide keeps reading Green/Safe. I'll be returning this piece of junk tomorrow. January 24, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor quality but cheap Easy to use but almost worthless. Detector does poor job on small leaks. This device is not needed on large leaks. February 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Don't guess Test Bought this to identify an old gasline. Before using it I tested it on a known source and it performed better than expected. Put it by my pipe came up yellow (small leak), aired it out and was green(no leak) February 4, 2016
