Product Overview

DR. SHRINK Viking Cylinders Lightweight LPG Tank, Fiberglass

Standard 17 lbs. propane tank that is made of fiberglass composite materials making it 50% lighter than steel propane cylinders, but just as durable. The tanks are corrosion free, easily stackable and are encased in a plastic housing with handles for easy carrying (shipped with either red or blue handle depending on availability). The outer walls are translucent, allowing you to see exactly how much propane is left in the tank. Each cylinder has a wide, stable base that prevents it from tipping over.

Unlike steel & aluminum tanks, Viking Cylinders® will not BLEVE in a fire (BLEVE is the technical abbreviation for boiling liquid expanding vapor explosion). In Layman's terms, the cylinder will not explode in a fire due to the inner resin and casting that melts to release a slow burn.

Tanks are shipped with either Red or Blue handle depending on availability.


  • Propane Volume at 60 Deg F: 4.05 gal
  • Butane Capacity: 18.70lbs.
  • Water Capacity: 40.4lbs.
