What Is Propane?

Propane is produced during natural gas processing and petroleum refining. It’s routinely compressed and stored as a liquid. You’ll often see it referred to as liquefied petroleum gas, LPG or LP. Propane is nontoxic and colorless. In the rare event of a spill, it poses no threat to the surrounding soil, water, or organisms.

How Much Does Propane Weigh?

One gallon of propane weighs 4.2 pounds. You can use that information to calculate the weight of your propane tank when it’s full. You’ll need a few other pieces of information to do that. You’ll need to know the tare weight (TW) of your tank. That’s how much it weighs when it’s empty. You’ll also need to know your tank’s capacity in gallons. The number of gallons your tank can hold multiplied by 4.2 and added to the TW is how much your tank weighs when full.
