What To Consider When Choosing Your Tank(s) & How Long it Will Last.
- Determine the total BTU of all appliances running on propane in your food truck. You can find the BTU ratings in the owner’s manual of the appliance or on the rating plate attached to the appliance.
- Add the total BTUs for each appliance you have. Remember, the BTU rating on each appliance indicates 100% total running capacity. For example, all of your burners are running on high per hour.
- Next, divide the BTU capacity of the tank above by your total BTUs of all appliances. This number is how many hours your appliances run off the propane of one tank. (Double that number if you operate two tanks on your truck.)
Tank Sizes + BTU Capacity
- 20 lb. propane tanks feature a 436,321 BTU capacity
- 30 lb. propane tanks feature a 654,481 BTU capacity
- 40 lb. propane tanks feature a 872,642 BTU capacity

Important notes for anyone working your food truck:
Know how to shut the propane supply off
Understand every marking on your propane cylinder.
These may include markings that show what type of tank you have, the original manufacture date, and the recertification date. The first recertification will take place after the tank is 12 years old, then it will need to be recertified every 5 years.
Know if your tank requires recertification.
Be familiar with the smell of propane.
Keep flammable liquids like cleaning agents or gasoline far away from any gas-burning equipment.
Fumes from these liquids can get ignited by the pilot burner.
Know the locations of every gas line in your truck.
Don’t try to repair propane leaks yourself.
If you suspect a leak, shut the valves to your tank(s) off. If you cannot shut off the valve, call 911. Never use appliances that are connected to a problematic cylinder until the leak is resolved or the cylinder has been replaced.
