How To Refill A Propane Tank
Written on: September 11, 2023
We have propane cylinders for grilling, RVs and outdoor amenities.
Fall is around the corner in Delaware, but grill season remains in full force. Outdoor chefs from Kenton to Milton prefer propane to fuel their barbecues. There are countless advantages to having a propane grill:
- Are you planning an impromptu cookout? There’s no need to spend time lighting charcoal and waiting for it to heat up. Just turn on your grill and toss on some burgers.
- You won’t ruin your perfectly seasoned trout or marinaded pork loin with lighter fluid tastes. Propane has no chemical taste or smell.
- Need to cook chicken at high heat and ribs at lower heat? You can set precise burner flames on either side of a propane grill.
- Don’t worry about messing up your outfit cleaning up ashes. Just turn off your propane grill and brush off the grates. No muss, no fuss!
To enjoy all this convenience and ease of use, you need a reliable supply of premium fuel. That’s where Delaware Propane comes in. We’re the most trusted propane provider in the First State.
What kind of tank does your grill use?
By and large, freestanding propane grills are designed for 20-pound propane cylinders. You can attach a larger portable tank to most grills, but the storage compartment is typically meant for a 20-pound cylinder. This size is commonly available at grill tank exchanges at hardware stores, gas stations and other businesses.
A 20-pound propane cylinder will provide about 18 to 20 hours of cooking on a medium-size grill.
What else are portable propane cylinders used for?
Grilling is certainly not the only use for a portable propane tank. These cylinders also power:
- Gas firepits
- Patio heaters and other outdoor heating products
- Recreational vehicles
- Camping stoves
- Propane bug traps
In addition to these residential uses, many manufacturing centers, warehouses, construction sites and distribution centers use forklifts powered by propane cylinders.
What should you do when your propane cylinder runs out?
When you need more propane for your grill, there are two options: refill your cylinder or exchange it for a full tank.
In pretty much every scenario, refilling your cylinder is more affordable than exchanging it. You avoid restocking fees and other charges, and Delaware Propane makes it even easier and more affordable.
