I used to work in the propane industry and it is still a family business. Overfill prevention has been OSHA law since like 2002 or so. You're not even allowed to fill tanks without it any more. Not a terrible price for a tank, but don't buy it because it has overfill prevention... they all do.

@keithbluhm: "Don't buy it because it has overfill protection." Say what?

@nmdenn2: he's saying don't buy it just because of the overfill protection. all propane tanks are required to have that feature.

@nmdenn2: You might want to read his post again.It's pretty clear.

Buying propane from a big box store instead of from a small business? Hank Hill would have something to say about that I tell you what.

@luke975 @dave17: If it's the law then the point is moot. A "just" in the sentence would have been clearer.

Speeding is against the law...but we all do it. Just sayin...

Seems like a good price but after my girlfriend got a gas grill this summer I googled for best price on a propane tank. Many people said just get one at a garage sale and exchange it for a filled one. Next day first garage sale had one that we got for $3.

@john1863: Totally! MY new grill didn't come with a tank. Blue Rhino exchanges were $18 with tank and $40 without. I found the rustiest piece of crap tank I could and exchanged it for a new one...

@shadowknight125: You buy the tank from big box so you do not have to do exchange tanks with big box!

@nmdenn2: I think they are trying to tell you, while you may know more about LP tanks then most, he was sharing his knowledge, not a bad thing.

It would be equivalent to a car dealer saying: This new car's windshield has shatter resistant glass. (sort of implying some new cars do not, but all know they all must have this safety feature). Savy?

I fill them up at the local gas station for about $12-13. This is a good price for a new tank, but they can often be found on Craigs List for about $10 if you are looking for an exchange. Where I live it rains a lot, tanks rust and then I exchange them every couple years. I exchange at Walgreens because they let me pick out a nice clean tank. I even had the valve go out once and I just exchanged it!

@nmdenn2: yeah and you actually reading the entire post would have made things clearer also. everyone else understood the point. sometimes it's not everyone else. it's you.
