How much fuel does the Gas Growler hold?
The Gas Growler has a capacity of about 1.2 gallons of propane, which is equivalent to about 5 disposable propane bottles. That means you get 5 times as much heat, or 5 times as many meals and no messy bottles to throw away. Each fill up is about 1.1 - 1.3 gallons, depending on settings at your local propane filler.
When the time comes to refill your tank, remember that propane tanks can be overfilled, and will not function optimally. Attendants at many filling stations are accustomed to filling much larger tanks, and may not have as much experience filling small tanks like the Gas Growler. To avoid overfilling, we recommend telling your propane attendant to put 1.1 - 1.3 gallons in, as opposed to filling until their overfill shutoff activates. With a small tank, there isn't as much wiggle room and a couple tenths of a gallon go a long way!
