where to place your propane tank

For proper delivery service, a tank should not be installed more than 80 feet from your driveway. This helps alleviate any problems of reaching the tank during the winter season.

All propane tanks must be:

  • a minimum of 10 feet from any part of a structure, deck, storage shed, property line, air conditioning unit, electric meter, or any source of ignition.
  • a maximum of 80 feet from a driveway.

An underground propane tank must be:

  • located in an area free of vehicular traffic and snowplowing in order to protect the dome of the tank.
