Seen them before and passed two as they were going south today. Huge white tanks rounded on each end with what looks like circular valve close to one end. They are on 18 wheelers. I wouldn't have worried but as I passed the second one today the smell of natural gas was extremely strong. Never smelled gas in that area before so wondered what the tanks contain?
Any ideas?

I saw some of those in past. They were water tanks (I think I remember the biz was located in Aurora) Look at writing on side next time you see one. Not that big of writing so you have to look close. They could have been helping firefighters with a fire if they were water tanks

The think the tanks were loaded on there side for transportation of the over sized load. I would bet a large amount that the tanks were empty as that amount of water or gas would be way over weight for the truck and the road.

They were heading south bound on Kenosha Pass and we were heading north bound. We experienced the same smell on the second tank. I thought it was a propane smell and very strong. The first tank had a line of vehicles behind it of well over a mile and a half.

Thank you, when I smelled gas I was worried. I don't know what Propane smells like but it was strong enough that I was worried. If gas is too heavy to haul maybe it was a valve left open on the second tank? I almost called 911 as that strong of a smell in open air was concerning. But felt I was just being silly, sure didn't want to bother emergency responders as I figured drivers knew what they were doing. 8O

On another note, what's with all the brand new stainless Coleman trucks going north on 285 every morning? Don't seem to be hauling anything.

Apparently they're hauling water to Nestlé in Denver, from Johnson Village.
