I believe you're confusing the concept of large quantity leaks with the typical failure mode of A/C seal leakage. One doesn't get much of a combustion event on these. You have more potential energy leaking from a typical liquid fueled vehicle than you'd ever have with R22 (propane) since the typical refrigerant content of an auto is about 16 ounces maximum. That's parked. Moving with engine bay airflow would be even less. Finally, historically, in a puncture causing accident, I have no knowledge of an incident where propane caused a vehicle fire. Tesla batteries OTOH......
