Whether you’re a homeowner or a commercial operation, new to propane, or just need to replace your tank, we’re here to answer all your questions. We can help you understand all your options when it comes to propane tank sizes and what suits you best.

A Primer on Propane Tanks

Unlike portable propane tanks, which give their capacity in pounds, residential and commercial propane tank sizes are usually given as their water capacity volume in gallons. Since propane is stored in a liquid state under pressure, it needs room to expand into a vapor. That’s also why propane tanks are “filled” to 80% of its water capacity.

To know what size tank you need, you need to know how you will use your propane—is it just for cooking, or for heating water, heating your home or business, or for other industrial uses? There are a lot of variables to consider, and we have the expertise to help you take the guesswork out of calculating the best size tank for your needs.

Common Residential Tank Sizes

Residential propane tanks typically range from 120 gallons to 500 gallons, on average.
