LP-Gas Tank - Tank Sizing Guide

Use the following table as a guide only to size LP-Gas tanks. The Gas Company will determine the size of the tank based on several factors. The smallest tank that meets all the following minimum requirements will be selected:
• Consumption – Minimum 3 week delivery cycle (assumes 60% of tank if filled each delivery)
• Vaporization – Vaporization of the tank at 30% full must meet the anticipated load
• Setbacks – The tank must meet all applicable setbacks per the Uniform Fire Code and County Codes
