Clearances and Set Backs
Many customers ask how far their tanks or cylinders need to be from their house or other structures; here are some general rules to follow.
How To Read Your Tank
Most propane tanks have only one gauge on them but some tanks include a pressure gauge as well as a tank level gauge. It is a common error to read the pressure gauge and think that you are running out of propane.
We only pump liquid propane when we fill your tank and the maximum amount we put in is 85% of liquid capacity. We need to allow room for vapor to form inside the tank because that is what your furnace and appliances burn, as the vapor is used more liquid vaporizes to replace it. One litre of liquid propane vaporizes to approx. 270 litres of vapor.
