Use a truck? I was merely pointing out that if
there was a leak or other problem, the small tanks
would be more than enough to cause a big
explosion. The OP suggested that the smaller tanks
were safer, which isn't the case. Propane tanks
shouldn't be carried in the trunk either. Even dry
ice shouldn't be carried in a closed space. If dry
ice is in the back seat of a car, all the windows
should be open. Welding trucks even have to have
vented cabinets and the cylinders have to be
capped when being transported. A lot of guys leave
the regulators on but they could get a big fine if
pulled over.

I've seen cylinders carried all sorts of ways.
It's quite a job fitting a 337 cu. ft. oxygen into
a Chevette. Every once in a while a customer
brings a cylinder in to exchange and forgets the
cap. Then they get upset because it's a $10 charge
for a cap so just want to exchange the cap with
the full cylinder. What they fail to realize is
they're carrying a bomb with 2200 PSI! If they
bring the cap back the next time, they get their
$10 back.
