Different Uses for Propane Tanks and Cylinders
You may hear propane containers called "tanks", "cylinders", or even "bottles" depending on who you ask. But no matter what you call them, they come in a variety of sizes for a wide range of uses.
The 20 lb propane tank is the most commonly recognized. It's usually referred to as a "propane grill tank", and it's the most popular size used to power propane grills, small RVs, and travel trailers. Mobile kitchens and food trucks, on the other hand, may use up to a 100 lb cylinder to power their operation.
