Propane Cylinder Weights

I weigh my cylinders rather than use a gauge. (Some tank weights vary a couple of pounds, and a gallon of propane weighs 4.2 pounds.) Maybe some of you will find this chart useful.

20 pound Manchester Tank, Tare Weight (TW) is 18 Pounds.
Loaded Weights:
1 Gallon - 22.2 Pounds
2 Gallons - 26.4 Pounds
3 Gallons - 30.6 Pounds
4 Gallons - 34.8 Pounds
4.7 Gallons (Full) - 37.7 Pounds
