Q. new to gas grills for back yard... How do I get started on LP cylinder exhange program?
- You can either provide your own bottle that you get somewhere else, or pay an extra $25-$35 over the exchange price to just get one without an exchange. As for knowing when they're empty, the only really accurate way is to weigh them, as they all have a tare (empty) weight stamped on the collar. You can usually estimate how much is left by rocking the tank and feeling the liquid sloshing around. With practice, you can estimate how much is left within maybe 10-20%. They do sell pressure gauges you can put in-line, but since the pressure only varies with temperature until all the liquid is vaporized, they are really only an "empty or not empty" indicator. They might give you 2-3 minutes warning before the tank is empty, certainly no indication of fullness. (They do sell some tanks with a float inside, hooked up to a gauge on the valve, that actually do indicate the real liquid level, but they're not very common.)by cdmurphy8/27/2016Was this answer helpful?

- I am planning on going today to find out, assuming they have any after the storm, and will post afterwards. There are all kinds of items you can buy to measure the contents of the tank, but nothing works that well. The most efficient way to confirm is to simply weigh the tank. It is 15 pounds empty and takes 20 pound of propane for a full total of 35 pounds!by bljjc18/27/2016Was this answer helpful? (9) (6)Was this answer helpful?
- These are standard 20lb tanks, and are designed to hold 20lbs, still leaving 20% free space for expansion. That being said, almost all of these exchange programs only fill their tanks to 15lbs. They quote safety reasons, but most likely it's because not very many people notice they're buying 25% less. 5-10 years ago, they were all filling to 17lbs, which was still a little sneaky, but I guess they got away with it. There are a few exchange programs that still fill them to 17lbs, but not very many. Having them refilled will almost always be cheaper, sometimes by half on a price per lb basis. Plus, you actually get a full tank. Be sure to shop around though, as there can be a 50-60% price difference between different filling stations, unlike gas where it's usually within 5% in a given area.by cdmurphy7/5/2016Was this answer helpful?

- This 15-lb cylinder can hold about 3 gallons of propane.by CommunityAnswer6/17/2016Was this answer helpful? (3) (4)Was this answer helpful?
