Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Safety precautions when painting natural gas-powered vehicles

  DANGER!
Excessively high drying temperatures endanger life! High temperatures increase the pressure in the tank for natural gas or liquefied petroleum gas. Excessive pressure can cause the tank for natural gas or liquefied petroleum gas to burst, causing severe injuries or death.
High temperatures trigger the thermal fuse of the cut-off valve on natural gas tanks. Increased pressure due to high temperatures triggers the pressure relief valve on liquefied gas tanks. Gas escapes from the tank for natural gas or liquefied gas and, in the presence of sparks, can produce a jet of flames. This may result in severe injuries or death.
  Never expose gas-conducting components to temperatures higher than +60°C.
  For drying in an oven above +60°, first remove all tanks for natural gas or liquefied gas and vent all gas lines.
  For infrared drying, never expose gas-conducting components of the high-pressure storage system to temperatures above +60°.
