Rated 1 out of 5Â by Grillaficionado Tank out-of-date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.

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

I recently received my first propane grill after swearing by coals and wood for over two decades. I did a little research into propane tanks and found that the exchange services only put 15 pounds in the 20 pound tanks.
I read that when gas prices went up, so did propane. In order to not increase the price, exchange services decreased the "fill" to 15 pounds of propane. So no price increase but less product. Exchange services are convenient but that convenience comes with a price. The place I went to charges by the gallon, so you pay for exactly what you get. When I filled this tank it took 4.4 gallons of propane which cost me $12 and change (the attendant gave me the vehicle price).
My tank was a little over a year old at the time of purchase. It was in excellent condition but the label (which you removed anyway) was a little torn. I looked around and this was the best price I could find. The tank was even pre purged so I didn't have to pay an extra fee. I highly recommend this tank.

5 Star for price only. One of the two tanks purchased looks like they spray painted over dirt. Order on line pick-up at store. What can you say about a 20# (pound) Propane Cylinder; It does it's job.
