Understanding Tank Sizes

Portable LP gas storage cylinders generally have a maximum capacity of 100 gallons of water. Even though the maximum capacity is measured in gallons of water, cylinders are usually referred to by their LP gas weight: 20 pounds, 100 pounds, etc.).

As you may know, LP gas is stored in containers as a liquid but then expands to a gaseous state when released from the container. That’s why we never fill a propane tank beyond 80% of its capacity.

Stationary tanks, either aboveground or underground, have various water gallon (WG) capacities that exceed 100 gallons.

Here are some diagrams and specs for the types of tanks Parker Gas can install for your home or business.
