Propane Tank Volume

Okay, guys, volume is area times length
Area is pi X R squared. 14 inch diameter : 7 squared is 49 times pi (3.14).
that's 153.86 times the length (28 inches) = 4308 cubic inches. A gallon is 231 cubic inches. Divide 4308/231=18.6 gal. That doesn't account for the dish ends on the tank but you get the idea. My tank is a 22 gallon but can only be filled to 80% which is 17.6 gal.
Oh, yeah, my gauges are totally inaccurate, too.

Love the math.
