Propane Tank Transportation-Safety Tips
- NEVER keep a filled propane cylinder inside a hot vehicle.
- ALWAYS transport a cylinder in a secure, upright position so it will not fall, shift, or roll when you’re driving. It is dangerous to travel with a tank on its side, so it's extremely important to keep the propane tank in a vertical position during transport.
- ALWAYS place the cylinder in a well-ventilated area of the vehicle.
- ALWAYS close the cylinder valve. Seal it with a plug if required—even if the cylinder is empty. If you’re not sure if your tank requires a plug, you can always ask at your AmeriGas refill or exchange location.
- ALWAYS proceed right to your destination and once you arrive, remove the cylinder from your vehicle right away.
