Incorrect. Modern 20lb tanks hold 4.4 gallons, aka 20 lbs.

Exchange services fill them to 15 or 16 lbs for cost reasons. Take an exchange tank to a refilling service like tractor supply, and you'll get 20lbs of propane.


exactly. and the exchange places put the fill amount in fine print. IMHO the only use for a exchange tank is to exchange an expired tank with a newer one!
