Item ID

A propane tank is a drainable item that can be used up to 16 times.



Propane tanks are used as a fuel in propane barbecues and refill a propane torch. Starting with 41.78, refilling a torch consumes 1/16 of a propane tank - even if the torch was not completely empty.


The propane torch uses some stored propane gas each time it's used, with a maximum of 10 units. A propane torch can be refilled if the player has a propane tank, then by right-clicking either the propane torch or propane tank, then selecting "Refill Blow Torch".
