Propane Tank Capacity[edit]

I purchased:		15 lbs of propane
			$55 ($60 w/tax) without deposit
can refill:		$22 (@ CVS)
TW (tare weight): 	16.6 lbs
after first use:		31.6 lbs (15 lbs remain)
other markings:	DT-4.0		WC-47.6 lbs

http://www.propane101.com/propanecylinderfilling.htm 'WC' stands for 'Water Capacity' - how much water it can hold!

http://www.propane101.com/images/cylinder-filling-chart.jpg 47.8lb WC will hold 20lbs propane!

In our first grilling, we hardly used any propane! How long will 15lbs of propane last?

http://hubpages.com/hub/Calculating-How-Long-Your-BBQ-Propane-Tank-Will-Last "A heating value of 91,600 BTU/gal (21,600 BTU/lb) is the commonly accepted value presented by the American Gas Association."

"Blue Rhino is not only installing OPD valves, they are installing their OWN proprietary OPD valves, called Tri-Safe II valves. You can identify a TSII valve by the little triangular indentation on the side of the valve. In order to get flow IN to a TS2 valve, a magnetic key must be inserted into the indentation to hold a steel ball out of the way."
