Euliss Propane prioritizes safety with every delivery we make and propane tank we install. Here’s our guide for transporting small propane cylinders safely:
Keep It Secure
Always transport and store propane tanks and cylinders in a secure and upright position so they will not fall, shift or roll.
Close The Valve
Always close the cylinder valve and seal with a plug, if required. Ask your propane representative if you need a plug.
Ventilation Is Key
Always place cylinders in a well-ventilated area, following these rules:
Never keep a filled cylinder in a hot vehicle or transport it in a closed truck.
Never store a propane cylinder in an enclosed space like a basement, garage, shed or tent.
Never store in an area of excessive heat (120 degrees or higher) or near a stove, fireplace, or other heat source. The heat builds up pressure inside the cylinder, which may cause the pressure relief valve to release propane.
Never store a propane tank under or near a barbecue grill.
Always proceed directly to your destination and immediately remove the cylinder from your vehicle.
State and local codes limit the number of cylinders transported in closed-bodied vehicles like cars and vans. Ask us for more info.
Do not smoke or have ignition sources such as flames or spark-producing electrical tools in the area while handling or transporting cylinders.
Do not try to modify or repair a propane cylinder or appliance parts under any circumstances.
