In this process I learned:
Every tank will have “tare weight” stamped into it, indicating how much is weighs, empty.
A standard bbq grill tank, aka a 20 pound tank, weighs about 37 pounds, full. It weighs about 17 pounds, empty.I (somehow) have 3 tanks that weigh 21 pounds.
I can’t go get this refilled and just pay for 16 pounds of propane. Its an all or nothing deal with a fill of this size. Same goes if you do a Blue Rhino swap out.
It would be ideal to have a pump, and transfer the propane from tank to tank. To good to be true. They are to expensive to make it worth buying one, even though it looks very simple… The Krug Pump, has been around for 50 years.
8 – 20 pound
1 – 40 pound
