Paraco has three spots for LPG tank car unloading on their siding; located at 44 Kroemer Ave., Riverhead. The eight white tanks have a capacity of 30,000 gallons of propane, but are not filled all the way to allow for expansion. I was told they are filled with about 28,000 gallons. Info: Steve Rothaug

Unfortunately, this link is not working. I've tried it several times over the past couple of days, without success.

Is the total capacity of the 8 tanks 30,000 gallons, or does each of the 8 tanks hold 30,000 gallons? Those tanks look pretty big.

Mr Deasy: Thank you. On that note, I will lock the thread until the OP gives Jeff, I, or Frank (liquidcamphor) a valid url.

Steve:
Thanks for the overhead photo. It is interesting and can answer jhdeasy's question.

@jhdeasy:
From the photo, I would say each tank can hold 30,000 gallons. The tank cars in the photo look to be cars for liquid propane service. Their capacities vary but a standard is 33,000 gallons apiece. They appear to be about the same size of each storage tank.

We buy our propane from Paraco, and when I set up the account I made it clear that we chose them because they ship in by rail.
