Original Complaint against Amerigas Propane published at on 12-Jul-14 says, verbatim –

Purchasing propane from the Home Depot Amerigas kiosk is certainly convienent. However, I noticed today that they declare the net weight of their tanks to be 15 pounds. Propane fillers or locations where you have the tank filled rather than exchange an empty tank for a different full one, will fill these tanks 80% full to allow for expansion. the standard according to B.J.’s wholesale club is 4.6 gallons. The density of propane at 25 degrees C is .493 grams per cubic centimeter. Converting gives 4.11 pounds per gallon. | Propane weighs about 4.2 pounds per US gallon, at 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Propane expands 1.5% per 10 degrees F. | At 25 degrees celcius 4.6 pounds of propane SHOULE net out to 18.906 pounds meaning Amerigas tank exchange program is shorting the total capacity of the tank by almost 4 gallons or just about 21%. | Home depot pricing on the exchange is $17.49 or very similar to what I paid at B.J.’s this morning with one major difference. At B.J.’s I recieved 4.6 gallons while at the Amerigas kiosk I would have only recieved 10.9 gallons for the same price. | Poikelos | edgewood, Maryland | U.S.A. |
