Propane Tank Features

  • Propane tanks are environmentally friendly, require little maintenance, and can last up to 40 years.
  • Because propane is a non-toxic fuel that doesn’t contaminate aquifers or soil, large tanks can be safely buried underground.
  • Fuel comes from the tank as a vapor, not a liquid
  • Minimal environmental disturbance due to their stable design
  • Functional versatility with usability in residential, commercial and industrial settings

Only need a propane tank for a few weeks or months? No problem! Foster Fuels offers propane tank rentals at a competitive price point. These rentals include models designed for underground and above-ground use. Plus, they include options for residences and businesses along with flexible payment plans.

When shopping for your home or business, the right choice of propane tank is essential. Foster Fuels, Inc. has propane tanks for sale in a variety of sizes to meet the needs of every client:


  • 120 gallon propane tanks – Vertical or Horizontal: the 120 gallon model is ideal for providing fuel in homes with one or two propane appliances. Measuring just 4’ 6” tall and 30” in diameter when upright, this space-saving unit is an unobtrusive addition to any residential property.
  • 325/500 gallon propane tanks: A 325 or 500 gallon tank provides enough fuel to meet the needs of commercial cooking operations or homeowners using propane to power their furnace, water heater or up to five smaller appliances.
