LP Tank Exchange
•Many retailers that sell grills offer you the option of replacing
your empty LP tank through an exchange service. Use only
those reputable exchange companies that inspect, precision
fill, test and certify their cylinders. Exchange your tank only
for an OPD safety feature-equipped tank as described in
the "LP Tank" section of this manual.
•Always keep new and exchanged LP tanks in upright position
during use, transit or storage.
•Leak test new and exchanged LP tanks BEFORE
connecting to grill.
