Weight vs. Gallons of Propane
Knowing how much propane you’re getting is maybe the most perplexing aspect of comprehending propane tank measurements. Propane tanks are usually identified by their weight, which is the number of pounds they weigh when full. However, most of us have no idea how much propane weighs, especially when the tank’s weight is factored in. It’s typically better to know how many gallons of propane a tank can hold to have a better view of how much propane is within.
We’ve listed all of the tanks below, not just by their weight, but also by how many gallons they hold. It’s worth noting that the two largest tank sizes are always indicated in gallons, not pounds.
Remember that the easiest way to figure out how much propane you’ve used or how much is remaining is to utilize it. Many propane tanks feature gauges that show you how much gas you have, similar to a car’s gas gauge. However, certain propane tanks, particularly the smaller ones, do not have this feature. It’s preferable to have two of these smaller tanks on hand: one that you’re currently using and one that you can switch to when the first one runs out. Then replace the original one, and you’ll have a backup at all times.
