A: I suggest that you take the following steps:

Contact Amerigas and inform them that you have not authorized them to fill your propane tank, and that there is a gas leak in your home that needs to be fixed before any further propane deliveries are made.

If Amerigas does not comply, you may need to contact the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) and report the situation. The CPUC is responsible for regulating propane companies and ensuring that they comply with safety regulations.

You may also want to consider contacting a licensed contractor to fix the gas leak in your home as soon as possible. This is important for the safety of you and your family.

It is also important to ensure that any future propane deliveries are authorized by you and that the gas leak is fixed before any propane is delivered.

Again, please note that the above steps are general suggestions, and you may want to consult with a legal professional for specific advice on your situation.
