Product Overview

Is it getting hot over here, or is that just us. AmeriGas Propane Exchange is the quick, easy way for you to swap out a tank, or buy a spare. Available at over 48,000 locations nationwide, there is always a local place to get propane you can trust, and get on with your day. With safety being our number one priority, the chemical properties of propane restrict us to only fill our tanks to 80% capacity. Our main concern is the variable expansion ratio of the liquid within the container over a temperature rise. By not filling to 100%, a vapor space is created within the container. This allows room for liquid expansion, should it occur, and allows vaporization of the liquid propane to occur unimpeded.

California residents: see   Proposition 65 information

  • Visit your local home depot store

Customer Questions & Answers

what is the weight of a full tank of gas?

I just purchased a refill. When I got home I discovered the value was open how much should a full tank weigh?
Asked by: dkp
The empty tank is 17 pounds. The propane weighs 20 pounds. So, a full tank should weigh 37 pounds. Take a small scale (such as a fishing scale) with you when you buy refills and keep your receipt. If your tank is in any way defective, take it back immediately. Propane is both flammable and explosive.

Can i turn in 2 good 20lb tanks for a refund?

You have to check with the store, but I doubt it. An exchange is an exchange.

How long are the codes good for.

If I purchase a tank and give receipt as a gift.
Asked by: Mac
I believe 12 years; but don't rely upon a code for safety. The one-way sign on the street doesn't guarantee that cars will travel only one way.

Can I exchange a blue rhino for amerigas?

Asked by: rick
I do all the time; but it may depend upon retailer. The label is the only difference because all such tanks are so heavily regulated that there is only one model.

Propane Tank Exchange is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst I would caution anyone from doing an exchange. I was stupid enough to do an exchange with a brand new tank I bought off HD. Received a beat up tank, connected it to the regulator and it is hissing and leaking gas at the valve. Now I am out of my brand new tank for a beat up leaking tank. I don’t even want to exchange it for another one. I think the best route is getting a brand new tank and having it filled at a propane service station. I am guessing people use this exchange to ditch their aged, expired beat up tanks for a “conditioned” tank. Unfortunately it looks like they don’t condition and leak test these beat up tanks well enough. I hope I can get my brand new tank back from them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of Money I had three different tanks from Amerigas. The are garbage. The valves on all three leaked so I lost most of the propane. Do yourself a favor and buy a new tank and just pay to have it filled. You will save money and frustration. Most of these tanks are very old.

You pay extra for convenience, and get less fuel, compared to having your own tank filled. A '20 lb' tank would hold 25 lb if filled to the top, and 80% of that is 20 lb. The marketing blurb on this site is deceptive. If you don't believe it, take the 'WC' (water capacity) figure stamped on the ring, which is the weight of water it would hold if filled to the top, multiply by .52 (just over half the density of water), and again by 0.8 (80% fill limit), and you'll get ~20 lb. Add the 'TW' (tare weight) figure that's stamped on the ring, which is the empty tank weight, and you can see how much is actually in there. Pressure depends only on temperature, so a pressure gauge on a stored tank is useless, by the way.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 1/2 filled tanks I exchanged a tank because it was out of date. Hooked it up to a portable heater and it ran out within an hour. THey clam they fill them to 15#. If you take them to go filled else wear they will fill them to 20#. If your tank is not out of date refill do not exchange!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Here are the facts Here are the facts: A "20# cylinder" is called that because that is its "maximum safe capacity". That is the most propane it can safely contain. This accounts for the 20% gas space which allows for expansion. One gallon of propane weighs 4.24#. Therefore, a 20# cylinder filled to "maximum safe capacity" will contain (20# / 4.24gal/#) = 4.7 gallons of propane. If you take a propane tank to a service station and fill it "all the way", you will leave with 4.7 gallons in your tank, because they will not fill the tank beyond its "maximum safe capacity". At this point, the tank is "full". A typical empty "20# cylinder" weighs around 17#. Therefore, a "full 20# cylinder" weighs around (17# + 20#) = 37#. This Amerigas cylinder weighs 32#. Therefore, this Amerigas cylinder gives you (32# - 17#) = 15# of propane. Given that a "full" cylinder can hold 20# of propane, and the Amerigas cylinder gives you 15#, the Amerigas cylinder is being sold at (15# / 20#) = 75% "full".

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Exchange weight not reliable Many reviewers complain about partially filled exchange tanks. This is true of all brands, not just Amerigas. In my experience with refilling my own tanks, partial refills are caused by early termination of refilliing procedure. I suggest taking a digital bathroom scale to the store and refusing to exchange for a bottle that weighs significantly less than 37 pounds. Alternately, buy in bulk (100 gallon minimum at my dealer) and refill your own 20-pound(barbecue), 16-ounce (camper stove) and 14-ounce (soldering torch) tanks and bottles. In any event, don't hassle store clerks because there is nothing that they can do except swap for another tank.
