KB Johnson carries a wide range of tank sizes to suit the needs of your home or business—from smaller tanks that provide propane for multiple appliances to tanks with the capacity to heat a large home or a commercial complex.
60 Gallon Tank
A standard 60-gallon tank holds 46 gallons of propane and is generally installed for residential cooking and clothes drying. Each tank is 43” in height and 24” in diameter. It is also known as a 200 lb. tank. The recommended minimum pouring pad size: 3.5 x 3.5 feet, 6” deep.
120 Gallon Tank – Vertical/Horizontal
A standard 120-gallon tank holds 96 gallons of propane and is generally installed for residential hot water or space heating with sufficient storage if you add a gas range or clothes dryer. This is also the standard tank size we typically set for propane fireplaces. Each vertical tank is 54.5” in height and 30” in diameter. It is also known as a 420 lb. tank. The recommended minimum pouring pad size: 3.5 x 3.5 feet, 6” deep. Each horizontal tank is 68” long and 24” in diameter. The recommended minimum pouring pad size: 3.5 x 6.5 feet, 6” deep.

1000 Gallon Tank
A standard 1000-gallon tank holds 800 gallons of propane and is generally installed for commercial and industrial applications. Large commercial and industrial installations may require multiple 1000-gallon tanks. Each tank is 16’ 1½” long and 41” in diameter. The recommended minimum pouring pad size: 5 x 18 feet, 6” deep.
Almost all KBJ Propane tanks have a gauge located on the tank. Most propane tank gauges read anywhere from 5% to 90%. To determine how much gas is in your propane tank, multiply the outage reading by the capacity of the tank.
A 500-gallon propane tank at 40% = 500 x 0.4 = 200 gallons remaining in the tank.
PLEASE NOTE: These figures are approximate and can only be used to determine estimated gallons in the tank. Temperature and gauge accuracy may make some readings unreliable. And remember, if your tank gauge reads less than 30%, be sure to give us a call or order online to schedule a fill-up right away!
Whether your heating oil tank is aboveground outdoors, or in your basement, you can look on top of the tank for a device similar to the one shown here:
ex. This tank shows it is 28% full.
Go to our order fuel page and enter the number of gallons you need. Once we receive the email, we’ll contact you to let you know our delivery date!
Note: To allow for fuel expansion and safe deliveries, an oil tank holds slightly less fuel than its official full capacity. For example, with a 275-gallon tank, the actual usable capacity ranges from 250-256 gallons. Please keep this in mind when placing your order.
