So to minimise these risks, covering the pipe may be just what is needed.
I don't know if the flammable fluid dripping onto the wrapping will get saturated and still reach its flash point.... I think as long as there can be NO liquid touching the exhaust, all should be good.
As for the grass, yes I think this will definitely resolve something like that.
If I recall correctly I paid R 200 or R 250 for 15m of the tape ( +/- 60mm wide)
