In Reply to: Propane tanks? posted by rodm1 on December 04, 2012 at 15:46:06:

I have a 500 gallon tank that I paid $1250 for about five years ago. When I first asked the dealer about it the lady led me to believe it was new, then she mentioned it was like new when I signed the papers. Actually, they tested the tank, installed new fittings and repainted it. It did look nice however after they installed it I looked at the name plate and the tank was made in 1968. I was not too happy about it being so old however I don't think it really makes any difference.

Two years ago I had them install a liquid draw off hose for my propane tractor. The valve installs in a bung on the top of the tank. The bung/valve is (at least on my tank) a "hot tap" which allows installation on a filled tank. Some dealers may not want to do it or carry the insurance so ask around if you get turned down. Also, I would indicate you want it for the tractor and don't brag about filling BBQ tanks for your buddies.

This fall I paid $1.15 per gallon. I have some portable tanks I use for finishing maple syrup etc. so it was well worth the $150 I paid for the hose installation. You will need an adaptor for the portable tanks which are pretty costly - I paid $30 for a used one.

If you are filling portable tanks you will want to weight them until you learn how to use the liquid level (spitter) valve. Also, always wear rubber gloves when working with propane - if liquid propane gets on your skin it will become frozen. Good luck
