Propane Fast Facts


Eco-Friendly Fuel

Propane is exceptional fuel for fun outdoors – it’s non-toxic and cannot contaminate soil or water.


Ready When You Need It

Your propane is stable inside of the tank so you can store it for the next trip – even if that trip is years away!


Safe Storage Is Critical

The pressure inside of a propane tank increases when temperatures rise. Don’t store a propane tank inside of a car when it’s hot outside. 


Understanding Propane Vapor

Liquid propane vaporizes at 270x its’ volume into propane gas so a little goes a long way. Propane vapor is heavier than air so it can collect in low-lying areas – don’t store propane in your basement!

disposable tanks are manufactured every year
