The Home Depot, typically, uses an exchange program. This program allows the customer to bring in an empty and exchange it for a full tank (20 lb tank only). Prices vary. Tanks purchased at The Home Depot must be taken to an authorized propane filling station prior to use. Recently, manufacturers began purge air from tanks (air used for pressurizing tanks during testing) prior to going to market. Not the case for all manufacturers so check your labels. Those not already purged must be purged of air during the initial filling process or you may experience difficulty lighting off the grill the first time around. Odds are you pass several gas stations, rental centers and the like that have propane filling stations. Call around, competition is fierce, prices can vary significantly. One word of caution. If you take your new "empty" tank to an exchange program you will be sacrificing your tank (good for approx 12 yrs) for a used tank which in all likelyhood will have a much shorter life span.

Answer: 
This particular tank sells as an empty tank. You can go to a local propane fill station (just use a search engine to fine one) and get it filled there. I also think Home Depot has an exchange program that is separate from this product if you just want to exchange your empty tank for a prefilled one at the store.

Answer: 
Don't switch it out with one of those prefilled tanks, to start with. Take it to a place to get it filled. I went to a local gas company that sells propane. Be sure to tell them it is the first time the tank is being filled. They have to do something special to it. It was much cheaper to fill it with propane than to get a prefilled one (by about $6), plus, you get to keep your nice, clean tank.

On the collar of the tank you will find the Tare Weight (TW), that would be the weight of the tank empty. Liquid propane weighs approximately 4.5 lbs per gallon.

Hello Northridge. Tank weights can vary slightly depending of the manufacturer. Usually 16-17.5 lbs empty. Roughly 38 lbs full. On the collar of the tank you will find the Tare Weight (TW), that would be the weight of the tank empty. Liquid propane weighs approximately 4.5 lbs per gallon. The Overfill Protection Device (OPD) prevents the fill station from over filling your tank and limits content to 4.5 lgp. Attendants will add a couple of pounds on the scales to compensate for the weight of the hose when attached to the tank. OPD's are usually found on tanks rated for 40lbs and below. Some specialty tanks are exempt. Note the propane when converted from liquid to gas is expanded by 380 times. Be careful and allow adequate time to let the gas dissipate when it is necessary to make repeated attempts to light your grill. Read Less

Answer: 
Look on the "handle" of the tank for the "T.W.", which is the tare weight, or weight of the tank empty. Mine says 17.1 lbs. A full 20-pound propane tank takes about 20 pounds of propane. So, my tank full would weigh about 37.1 lbs. Now, weigh a "full" tank that you just exchanged for an empty one, and you will probably find that the weight is much less than the tare weight plus 20-pounds. Think price Read More

Most 20 lb tanks weigh about 16.5 pounds empty. Check the collar of your tank for the Tare Weight (TW), that is the weight of the tank empty. At approximately 4.5 pounds per liquid gallon, your tank will weigh about 38 lbs full.

Answer: 
The actual weight of a 20 lb propane tank varies with the manufacturer. Usually between 16.5 and 17.5 pounds empty. If you look on the collar of a propane tank you will find a "TW" and a number, this is the tare weight or the weight of the tank empty. i.e. TW 16.5. One gallon of liquid propane weighs approximately 4.5 pounds. A 20 lb tank will hold almost 5 gallons, however, there is an "Overfill Read More

If you look on the collar of a propane tank you will find a "TW" and a number, this is the tare weight or the weight of the tank empty. i.e. TW 16.5. One gallon of liquid propane weighs approximately 4.5 pounds. A 20 lb tank will hold almost 5 gallons, however, there is an "Overfill Protection Device" in the tank that prevents attendants/fill stations from over filling your tank and limiting the amount to 4.5 gallons. So, your tank full should weigh roughly 38 lbs. If you're watching the scales at the fill station you may see it hit 40-43 lbs, this is because there is added weight when the fill hose is attached to the tank. Usually 3 lbs is figured in for the weight of the attached hose. If memory serves me correctly; the temperature of the liquid propane is approximately negative 42 degrees and is capable of causing severe burns and when released into the air liquid propane expands by about 380 times as gas. Normally, propane has no odor, what you typically recognize a propane gas is the result of an additive for just that purpose. Read Less

Answer: 
No, the price shown for this tank is just the tank. Most H.D. stores offer 'exchange' tanks [Blue Rhino] that are already filled. You bring in your old, empty tank & for a small fee you exchange it for one that is already filled. This cost is generally equal to or slightly higher than taking your own tank to have it filled at a propane distributor.

There are a number of "stick on" heat/cold sensitive strips that are just as accurate. The Tare Weight (TW) (empty) of the tank is stamped on the collar.

Not all 20 lb propane tanks come with a fuel gauge. Some manufacturers do offer such an attachment and the accuracy varies from product to product. There are a number of "stick on" heat/cold sensitive strips that are just as accurate. The Tare Weight (TW) (empty) of the tank is stamped on the collar. Liquid propane weighs roughly 4.5 lbs per gallon. Filled to the max a 20 lb tank will hold approximately 5 gallons, however, the safety float inside the tank will cause filling to stop at four and a half gallons.
Put you tank on a scale, deduct the TW, divide the difference by 4.5 and you can figure out how much gas is left in the tank. Depending on the actual TW, a full tank is approximately 38 lbs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service I ordered the propane tank with a gas grill online. When I arrived for pick-up, I was asked for my propane tank. I answered that I didn't have one because I had just moved here from another country and I didn't know Home Depot had an exchange program. They called a manager over who said it was OK. I was expecting to get a new tank; however, I certainly didn't mind getting a used but full propane tank. I also know where to go when it's empty. May 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality Tank Very well made. Sturdy and safe. I bought two of these as I am tired of the junk you get at the exchanges. You can look at it and know they made an outstanding product!! Highly recommend!! August 23, 2016
