Re: 20# propane tank in reply to Davy Fireball, 05-05-2011 10:21:13
sorry: i didn't explain myself - i had a propane tank that had the old style valve i removed the valve filled it with water rinsed it then let it air out & made a air tank from it. i then filled it with air( expelled it) and filled it once again putting 130lbs in. i didn't know how much volume it contained- thanks

I would assume you mean with air, not LP gas! LOL If you ever empty one of these tanks, the gas will be exhausted from the tank a long, long time before that terrible smell is!! The way I see it, there are three variables here: #1 is how much pressure is in the tank and #2 how big a leak does the tire have. #3 How big a 15" tire it is. I use an old 20# LP gas tank for "spare" air and if I fill it to 95 PSI it will comfortably fill a 6.00 X 16 tire on my WD-45 to about 30 PSI. Keep in mind that the tire has a very slow leak which took most of the winter to go flat. An average 15" automobile tire would probably hold more air than my tractor tire but I would think you could put enuf air in it to safely drive it far enuf to get more air or get the flat fixed.
