How long will propane stay in a bottle?

    Propane will stay in a bottle for quite a few years, but propane tanks and bottles have certain safety regulations that are important to follow.  Usually propane tanks/bottles must be inspected every 10-12 years.  Bottles should have an expiration date stamped on them somewhere.  To get your bottle recertified, search online for a propane certification site in your area. 

    If you are wondering whether you can use an “old” propane tank/bottle for your gas grill, it would probably be safe to use if it has not passed the expiration date yet.  However, if the canister has dents or corrosion, it would most likely not be safe to use.

    It would be best to check with someone who is familiar with propane safety before attempting to use the tank/bottle on your own.
