There’s nothing more disappointing than marinating some chicken, prepping some ribs, or just opening a pack of hot dogs and discovering that your grill propane tank is empty. For a lot of people, there’s something intimidating about replacing an empty propane tank.

But swapping out an empty propane cylinder for a full one is easy, as long as you have a spare on hand.

Not sure you know how to replace your grill tank? It’s as easy as 1-2-3.

How to Replace Your Grill Tank

  1. Make sure your grill is off, and the tank valve is closed (turn it all the way to the right, until it’s tight).
  2. Unscrew the grill pressure regulator and hose by turning it to the left.
  3. Some grill models also have a restraining bolt. Just loosen it and remove the tank.

To reconnect a full tank, simply follow these steps in reverse. Be sure the tank valve is closed when you reconnect the pressure regulator.

Refill or Exchange—what’s the Difference?

Some people appreciate the swap-and-go convenience of a cylinder exchange. But savvy customers that own their own cylinders love the ease and the savings they get by refilling. Owning your own portable tank can save money in a few ways:

First, you’ll save on the price of the propane. The difference can be up to $1.75 per gallon!

You’ll also save because you pay only for the propane you use. How’s that?

With propane grill tank exchange, you’re charged for all the propane in the cylinder—including the propane left in the tank when you take it to be exchanged. Because think about it: When you know your propane cylinder is starting to run low, your instinct is to take it for a refill before you run out. So unless you run them until they’re completely empty, you could be wasting half a tank or more over the span of a few tanks.

When you choose to refill your propane tank, you’re only buying the propane to fill the rest of your cylinder.
