I'm curious, what are you doing that is causing your lawn mower to
become wet and covered with mud? When I mow the lawn, the grass is dry
and there is no mud.
I put the lawn mower in the shed from November until April, just
cleaning off whatever old grass is stuck to the deck and the blade. In
April I check the oil, top off the fuel tank, and it starts just fine.
You wouldn't want to leave gasoline in the tank for a year without
adding some STA-BIL, but six months is just fine.
I recall getting homeowners insurance at one time where there was a
clause in the policy that stated that you could not keep gasoline in the
house, and wondered about where people would keep fuel for a lawnmower.
I don't recall anything being mentioned about propane.

problem running the grill, see no reason whatsoever to bring the tank

Of course, it's a detached garage about 30 feet away from the house.

I suppose the cars are at risk, but life (as other posters have
pointed out) is full of risk.

Just like a fireworks factory. Of course, if the cars are
inside, I'll be peeved.
Still, the whole thing is so leaky, I doubt it could get to the
correct propane concentration for combustion.
