    OK, that's an expression used in Puerto Rico, means that if you do certain thing bad to someone that someone will not keep his/her arms crossed without doing something back to you. Is like if you are about to do something to somebody and that somebody knows so and another person tells to that one what you are about to do to the person you are gonna do something against to will say "dejalo a ver si el gas pela o no pela" Means leave her/him, let see what's happens. Is like saying let see if the fire burns or not.

    The literal translation means lets see if the gas peels or not. That's also because years ago the gas for the torches was sold individually and the groceries stores used to sale it to people in different cans brought by the people kept for that purpose and because it was to strong if some of it wet your skin that pert of the skin got peeled like if you got burnt or something like that, like when you got overexposure to the sun.

    This is an expression used just in Puerto Rico.

    i think its something about hair in the feminine sense because pelo is masculine, so pela must be feminine.
