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#.
