How long will a 5 gallon propane tank run a grill?

    Good question, jeffrey897.  It really depends on what you set your grill at, since there are usually multiple burners and settings.  But to give you an idea, if you have all of them on high, a 5 gallon tank will last you roughly 13-15 hours.

    Most grills use a basic 20lb. tank which is 4.1 gallons.  Jeffb is right about how long it will last.  When the tank does become empty I would suggest refilling it rather than exchanging it.  Often times it is cheaper, you are guaranteed that the tank will be completely re-filled, and above all, actually work.  Prices vary but at the hardware store where I work we charge $19.99 for a 20lb  refill.
