    Propane weighs 4lb per gallon. AmeriGas says there is 15 pounds of propane in a 20lb exchange cylinder. Thanks to the Over Fill Protection (OPD) device, That’s not even 4lbs in a cylinder made to hold 5 gallons at 4lbs per gallon. How much would you bet that you’re getting charged for 5 gallons but only getting 3-3/4?

      Thank you for your comment. Please note the following:
      Propane weighs 4.24 lbs per gallon. There is 15 – 15.2 lbs of propane in a cylinder therefore there is 3.5 – 3.6 gallons of propane in an exchange cylinder for sale at retail locations.
      The volume of the cylinder will indeed hold 5 gallons of liquid (AKA water capacity) but maximum amount of liquid propane allowable for a safe fill is 4 gallons of liquid propane. The remaining 20% of the capacity of a propane cylinder is the vapor space; it is where the expanded vapor resides and is drawn out of the cylinder to be used as a gas. As vapor is drawn out of a cylinder, liquid propane vaporizes constantly filling or “re-charging” the vapor space of a cylinder.
      The OPD device is designed to shut off the flow of propane into the cylinder at 4 gallons or 17 lbs. The OPD device will not allow anymore propane than this to be pumped into a cylinder.

    Dear Americas
    There is something baffling me and the guy that fills my propane tanks at the local KOA suggested i ask you this question. Two years ago i purchased 4 5-gallon propane tanks at my local Sams Club. During the first year i routinely refilled these tanks at either my local KOA or the local 76 Gas Station. About 8 months ago the local 76 Gas Station no longer offered propane refill service and the local KOA reduced their propane refill service hours. So each of the 4 5-gallon tanks were traded at my local mini mart offerin your refill tanks.. Well after using your tanks for a few weeks in my Man Cave for heat i realized i was going through a lot more propane usage when i started using the Amerigas refill tanks from my local mini mart.. So now having 4 Americas propane tanks after trading in my Sams tanks i have resorted to refilling back at my local KOA.. What i am finding disturbing is that each of the Americas tanks only hold 3.5 gallons.. The KOA guy tried to remove suspected air pockets in each tank but still they only hold 3.5 gallons.. In order to check the KOA refill station i went SAMs and bought two new 5.0 gallon propane tanks and took them back to the same KOA with two empty Americas tanks.. The two new Sams tanks took exactly 4.8 gallons while the two Americas tanks still took only 3.5 gallons. The KOA guy told me that Americas was busted for modifying tanks to only hold 3.5 gallons and they were selling to to customers at a 5 gallon rate. Needless to say, I have four useless Amerigas tanks that only hold 3.5 gallons due to your modification.. i am writing this because my intentions is to demand that you replace the four useless Americas propane tanks for four tanks that will hold the 4.8 gallons as intended. I paid very good money at Sams for 5.0 gallon propane tanks and ended up with useless Ameicass tanks modified by Amerigas to hold 3.5 gallons.. If Amerigas does not feel this is a fare request or respond to my request, then i will complain to my local attorney general about this situation
    if you consider this an honest fare request then please contact me at
    916-847-0293 .. If i dont receive any response by jan 31, 2012 then i assume you will want me to follow up with the Calif Attorney General

    thanks

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

    cartierlovejesduas I appreciate the point you made about putting the preferences of the church before your own, and I agree to a point. There is a value in projecting your artistic preference and direction in leading a church into a new place they may not be comfortable with for the sake of pointing them to Christ. However, there must be an exegesis of the culture.

    cartierlovejesduas One can find eight deposits of oil shale in Jordan that happen to be deemed the most important. All of those deposits are positioned inside the western central part of the nation. They may be positioned within 20 to 75 kilometers of the Useless Sea.
