### Choosing the Right Size of Propane Tank?

There are a number of different propane tank sizes out there,
and the size you get will be dictated by a couple of major factors.
Namely, you'll need to consider exactly what you'll be using the
propane tank for and how much propane you think you'll be using.
For example, there are a number of smaller propane tanks that you
can get that work perfectly well with bar-b-ques. This is because
they are mobile, and hold enough propane to have a decent lifespan
with basic use. However, getting this same size of propane tank for
your hot water heater may not be such a good idea.

### Your propane meter reading was 25 how many gallons is that?

I assuming 25 cu-ft (cubic feet). 34.6 cubic feet of propane
vapor equals one gallon of liquid propane. So, 25/34.6 = 0.72
gallons. Depending on the size of the tank, 25 on the gauge will be
25 percent of the total capacity of the tank. A 250 gallon tank
will have about 62 gallons. The gauges are in 10 percent
increments, so each number represented on the guage ex:
10,20,30,40,50,60,70,80,90, represents 10 percent of otal tank
capacity. In a 250 gallon tank 10 would equal 25 gallons, 20 would
equal 50 gallons and 30 would equal 75 gallons. Likewise in between
these numbers would be 5 or whatever it appears to be closer to
above or below 5.
