Oppressed?

Going back to "Aunt beams warmly" or "Aunt begs a heat", perhaps it's just me, but I can't see how "butane" is arrived at. I can see that the middle is an anagram of "aunt", but the rest?

Hi FFS

Not oppressed .. Sorry

Re "aunt begs a heat" ... Not the best of clues i must admit ... Thinking was
AUNT BE (anagram of butane) GS A (gas) heat. Note to self .. Must do better.

Cheers
