Propane Tank Size

I have a 2015 27RB FC — just trying to determine the propane tank weight & volume for each tank?

Thanks,

Glenn

The 30# LP tanks hold 7 gallons of propane each. When full, they weigh about 35# each.

Well, 7 gal of propane itself weighs about 30 lb (hence the "30-lb" designation) and Worthington's nominal tare on a steel 7 gal DOT cylinder is 23.3 lb so I think you'll find your typical full weight around 54 lb/tank.

Propane Tank Size

That sounds more like it. The 35 pound figure seemed a bit light (or I’ve gotten really weak lately...)
