Lauderdale and West Palm Beach rely on propane for gas ranges and ovens, clothes dryers, water heaters, standby generators, pool heaters and countless outdoor living amenities.

That fantastic adaptability — combined with affordable pricing and exceptional efficiency — makes propane seriously popular. But you need a reliable tank to safely use this home fuel.
