Tank Transportation Safety Tips
ALWAYS transport and store a cylinder in a secure and upright position so it will not fall, shift, or roll.
ALWAYS close the cylinder valve and, if required, seal with a plug, even if the cylinder is empty. Ask your propane retailer if a plug is required.
NEVER keep a filled cylinder inside a hot vehicle.
ALWAYS place the cylinder in a well-ventilated area of the vehicle.
ALWAYS proceed directly to your destination and immediately remove the cylinder from your vehicle.

HOW TO PROPERLY STORE YOUR TANK FOR THE WINTER
AmeriGas wants you to be prepped and ready to go as the temperatures start to fall. At AmeriGas we put safety first and safely storing your propane tank is a necessity when cleaning up your outside area for late fall and winter. Freezing temperatures do not pose a problem for propane; in fact, you don’t need to cover the tank outdoors. You can place the tanks on a piece of wood and store them uncovered
When storing your propane tank, detached sheds and garages are best. These structures provide coverage for the tank, while also supplying it with a well-ventilated area to stay until temperatures warm-up. Remember, propane is heavier than air and it will settle, so give it a chance to dissipate when you open the door. Never store your tank in your living areas or anywhere that is attached to your home.
