Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gkny No reason to buy pre-filled tanks
I bought this pre-prepared tank which seemed to be in excellent condition. Manufacturing date is clearly printed on the tank and you are expected to use it for your first fill within 6 months which shouldn't be a problem. Filling my tank costed $15 & was straightforward. I didn't like exchanging at $20 for a old tank of some brand name I never heard of. In addition, these old tanks looked a bit rusted and bent out of shape due to mass handling. So far I am happy with this product and expect to keep the tank for 10 years.

It was nice to know that the item was date stamped with this year. There is a life span for propane tanks, 12 years. So, when buying a tank, make sure it isn't old. The staff person at HD didn't know about this issue, but does now.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alphabet Hey! It's only a propane tank.
I shopped around, but could only find propane tanks made off shore. The BernzOMatic is made in the USA, and it is most reasonably priced at The Home Depot. It is only a propane tank, but this is a good one!

Old stock, the newest that I found was 18 months old. One was over 4 years old. The reason that this is important is because that date stamped on the tank is the start of a 12 year life. When that 12 years is up the re-fillers will not fill the tank. Look at the date which is in the month-Year format. ie 05 12

Good Price for a good product.
Much cheaper than going to the Ameriagas or Blue Rhino exchange
They want 49 dollars for a no exchange bottle or 19.99 for an exchange.
Propane is 1.99 a gallon, 9.95 to fill
Plus 19.99 += 39.94 for a bottle that you can refill for 12 years

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Grillaficionado Tank out-of-date
Tried to purchase this tank in the store, but upon checking the manufacture date on the collar I found that that tanks in stock were all nearly 3 years old! Tanks are only good for 12 years, so I would have paid full price for a tank with much less useful life. Also, a tag on the tank indicated that if it was older than 12 months prior to first fill it would have to be re-purged, so I would have incurred that additional cost. The store clerk said those tanks were the only ones available, so I will have to purchase it elsewhere.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HDCustomerCT Pleasantly surprised
I bought one at the local HD and was surprised to find a sticker on it saying that it was pre-purged. Saves you a couple of bucks the first time you fill it. Nice!
The price was lower than any googled price I found, internet or local.
