When using propane for your home, it is important to consider tank options. Whether you’re looking to use an existing tank, rent a tank, or purchase, Bryan’s Fuel offers flexibility and guidance.

Using an Existing Tank: If you already have a propane tank, our certified technicians will inspect it to make sure it meets regulatory requirements.

Renting a Tank: Not ready to buy? Renting a tank is a convenient option, and our friendly team will help you with all the necessary details.

Purchasing a Tank: Ready to make a long-term investment? Our experts will help you choose the right size and type of tank for your needs.

Propane Tank Sizes

Depending on your needs, you can choose from the following propane tank sizes for your home:

  • 454L
  • 325 USWG
  • 500 USWG
  • 1000 USWG

Selecting the right propane tank option is a simple, guided process when you contact our team.


2. Monitoring Your Usage Patterns

Knowing your usage pattern will help you manage costs and prevent interrupted service. You can keep an eye on your tank levels through gauge readings, and we can help guide you on how often to schedule your propane deliveries by providing information about average delivery times in your area.

Remote Monitoring: We also offer satellite propane tank monitors that provide real-time data on your tank level, making it easy to see your propane usage and manage deliveries. 


3. Exploring Flexible Delivery Options

Preparing your home for the delivery day allows for a smooth and efficient experience. Here’s a checklist to help guide you through the process. You’ll want to cover the following:

Winter Preparations: Clear your driveway of snow to ensure easy access, and salt or sand your driveway.

Vehicle Movement: Move vehicles or items to create a clear path to the tank.

Pet Safety: Keep pets indoors for their safety during delivery.

With a little preparation, the delivery day is a breeze.
