My guess is that CO2 cannister is being used to compress a petrol tank on his back.

Its the safest way.

So you'd say using propane as propellant for a flamethrower is as safe as using carbon dioxide....?

I'd say not. Particularly when the petrol runs out and all you're left with is a gas stream.

Hotwire is right... He uses the CO2 to compress the fuel. Propane is not safe, because it is flammable. You should use a non-flammable gas to compress/push the fuel. CO2, Nitrogen and Argon are commonly used.
Optimally, you have 3 tanks for a flamethrower: One for the pressurized gas (Carbon Dioxide, Argon, Nitrogen) and the others for the fuel(s). Often times the gas is placed between the two fuel tanks so the fuel cylinders drain at the same rate and the backpack does not get off-balanced.
The fuel can be petrol/automotive gas or deisel or a mix: 90% heating oil and 10% high octane gas... or whatever else you want to use. The mix can be thrown further and sticks to/burns the target better.
The guys in the vid probably used straight gasoline.
