How To: Refuel a gas grill

Refuel a gas grill

Even if you're a master at the grill, dealing with the tank can be a little intimidating if you've never done it before. But there's really not much to worry about. Exchanging or refilling your gas grill tank is easy to do.

Warning: Propane is flammable and hazardous. Do not use or store a cylinder in a garage or other enclosed area.

You Will Need

*A gas grill
*A propane tank
*A propane dealer

Step 1: Turn off gas

Turn off the gas on the grill and any external burners.

Step 2: Turn off cylinder value

Turn the cylinder tank valve hand wheel all the way to the right until it is completely closed.

Step 3: Unscrew hose or knob

Unscrew the hose or knob that connects the grill to the tank and remove the tank from the grill.

Tip: Rap on the side of the tank. An empty tank will have an echo.

Step 4: Transport tank

Transport the tank in a secure, upright, and vertical position to be refilled or exchanged.

Tip: Never allow the tank to be bounced around, and don't transport more than four tanks at a time.

Step 6: Reconnect

Take your full tank home, reconnect it, and start grilling.

Fact: More than two-thirds of all grills are fueled by propane.
