In this manner, is it OK to leave a propane tank on?
Nothing will happen, if the tank is connected to the grill and the tank valve is left turned on, unless one or more of the burner control vales isn't turned fully off or is leaking. In that case, propane from the tank will escape through the burner(s).
One may also ask, should you open propane tank valve all the way? Unlike a water spigot, there is no halfway when dealing with a propane valve, either turn it all the way open and "snug it", or all the way closed and "snug it". Obviously, knowing how to turn the gas off is something all gas customers should know, so if your not sure how to do it call your gas company.
Similarly one may ask, are you supposed to turn off propane tank after grilling?
No, that is incorrect. The proper way to turn off a grill is by turning off the propane tank first, then turning the knobs on the grill. This way you cut the supply of the flame first. Cleaning: The final step after you are done grilling is to clean off any of the grease and or fat build up that may have happened.
Can propane tanks be left in the sun?
The most important thing is to ensure that the tank is not exposed to direct sunlight or very high heat, over 110 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep it cool by ensuring that it has shade at all times, and by keeping the propane BBQ out of the sun.
