Similar situation here. Our propane company owns the tank and told us that if we clean it, they will come out and paint it.

There's a small round tank by house painted yellow with a black smiley face. But I live in the country.

Re: painting a propane tank


I know this is an old post but hopefully this information will help someone in the future...

For a 500 gallon tank, you will use 1 gallon of primer and 1 gallon of paint. As far as the type of primer and paint to use, I would recommend a universal rust inhibitive primer and either a silicone alkyd white enamel, blued white enamel of aluminum tank coating. If you would like a manual on how to paint a propane tank and what to use, I can give you one. Just message me.

Hope this helps.
