A very interesting subject.
What about the 1000's of people who go camping in standard cars, without trailers or roof racks? Where do they store their gas bottles - in the boot or in the back of the waggon!
So, what is the solution
for these poor suckers - collect wood for a fire to cook
their tea, or maybe they should just stay home - I don't think so.
I carry 2 small bottles in the back of the car, one for the frig and one for the stove - have done for ....Hmmmm .. 30 or more years. Where else would we suggest I keep them?
I think that the 'authorities' need to change the MV regs to make 4WD's have their exhaust systems placed on the roof, not under the car - that will lessen the No. of vehicles lost to fire in the bush! ??
I think we should take Willems advise and be SENSIBLE and not stress too much.
There is far greater 'risk' taken by those who have a couple of slabs of beer in the back of the car!
Happy days !

The carring of gas bottles in the vehicle was outlawed a few years ago when a plumber in Sydney
had a slow leak in his van. On Tuesday morning after a long weekend he started the van. They found parts of his van in the next post code.
This one incidence caused a review of gas bottle storage.
