20# propane storage

13 posts in this topic

Edited: Is it fine to store a full 20# propane tank outside during the winter/summer?

Sure it's fine. Who brings their propane tank in off of their barbeque? Mine has never been inside at all.

Thats where they are supposed to be. Keep it out of direct sunlight and it will be fine!

Yeah, isn't that kind of a rule, outside only?

Outside is a lot safer. If they start to leak or gas off, you sure don't want it contained in the garage. That could get pictures of your house's remains on the evening news.

I don't think leaving them outside hurts them. If that was the case the local LP dealer wouldn't leave 100's of them outside all the time. grin

Got a point, plus all the farms with those big tanks as well. Like I said earlier, I have always heard that outside is the way to go

Right on thanks. I've never dealt with anything bigger than a 1 pounder. Always used charcoal grills smile

I take it in the summer just cover it up outa direct sunlight?

I actually don't think sunlight even bothers them. I have mine on my grill in the sun, no problems.

Yah, if I had an explosion for every 20lb tank I see sitting in the sun all summer, I wouldn't have to put up with some of my neighbors anymore. smile The only thing wrong with letting them sit outside is that its a way for passer-bys to save $25 by stealing yours. frown

    • 70 HP Johnson motor.  Older model, but low hours on it.  Starts up fine, but when I go to give it gas the engine bogs down and won't come anywhere near running as fast as it should.  Anyone have any thoughts on the cause?  Wondering if maybe the carbs need to be cleaned.  If so, anyone know how much of a job that is?   Thank you in advance for any feedback.
    • The Warriors won't lose anyone that wants to stay with them since Durant is basically sitting back and saying pay my boys and then we will take care of business.  Hard to lure a free agent from them if their studs take such paycuts...
    • Score!! Nice find.
    • I still don't like the Hanzal/White trade.  I can see a team that is on the edge or coming into the playoffs as a 6,7,8 seed, but at the time, the Wild was 1st in the West and everything was going great.  I really didn't see a reason why they needed to change or bring in other players.  If it ain't broke, don't fix it.  They could have brought guys up from Iowa down the stretch to spell the vets and give them some motivation.   I'd like to know what Baby Boudreau wants to change or what he would like to see on the team. It would be nice to have somebody that really knows and wants to work the front of the net.  Parise is the closest thing we have to that and that isn't good for his longevity.  Be nice if Coyle embraced a role like that and used his size out front.  
    • Probably because most people wouldn't sell one of these for that much. I'm not sure why they did and well I didn't ask. Maybe they didn't like it as even being a older grill it had hardly been used and looks like new. I already had a Holland Companion grill that works great but this is even better. 
    • Skol!  I'm excited to see how Cooks pans out.  He seems legit so far!  What was the deal with KFAN ditching the rubechat forums?  I know the political page could get a little overheated at times but the others seemed pretty tame.  Too bad! 
    • Wow!! Now THAT's a deal!!!!!!! Why can't I find stuff like that?! 
    • Well not exactly new. Found this at a yard sale for $40.     
    • Havnt seen him for a while and is a lot bigger now.
