Why Isn’t My Propane Tank 100% Full After a Delivery?

Get safe, reliable propane delivery from Sweetwater Propane

propane tank Reading, pa If you have ever gone to check your propane tank after a delivery from Sweetwater Propane, you may have been surprised that the propane tank was not filled to 100% capacity. You then may have wondered if we’d shorted you.

We didn’t. The reason behind not filling your propane tank all the way is to ensure the utmost safety when it comes to propane.

Like water, propane expands when heated. However, unlike water, propane expands about 17 times more for the same temperature increase. By not filling the propane tank completely, it leaves room for expansion when it gets hot outside, ensuring the safety of the tank.

Aboveground propane tanks are typically filled up to around 80% capacity, whereas in-ground tanks can be filled slightly higher. The reason behind this is that the underground tank benefits from insulation provided by the surrounding ground, which serves as a protective barrier against extreme temperature fluctuations.
