Everyone around here wants $20 to fill a 20 lb tank. Some big outfit bought out the local guy in Stockbridge, MI and they used to charge $10 to fill a 20 lb cyl. Now you might as well go to any big box and trade your tank in, its all $20 for about 3 gal of LP.

I go to TSC to have my tanks filled, they charge by the # of gallons they put in your tank. About half price. BTW, you can no longer put 20# in a 20# tank. Lucky to get 18, because of the safety device inside the tank.

Yes, the 20 Lb tanks are an expensive way to buy propane: Propane weights 4.23 lb/gal so a 20 lb tank will hold 4.73 gal (20/4.23). At $20 for a fill, the cost is over $4.00 per gal. I have always wondered if the big box trade tanks are actually filled to the 20 lb level and would suggest weighing the tank to verify what you are paying for. I own my storage tank and have a liquid draw off valve to fill my own small tanks. I paid for the draw off system the first time I filled my tanks.

No your store bought 20# LP tanks are not filled to 20#, the sign on the rack says filled to about 14#-16#(depends on the company) They sell you a LP tank, not 20#. We run into problems all of the time with the new OPD valves, you can only fill them to what ever the valve lets you fill them to. That is why the big boys who use semi-automatic fill stations, only sell the full bottle not 20#.
