Answer: 
No. The tank comes empty, but it is pre-purged, so all you have to do is visit a local propane dealer, and for about $10 get 25% more fuel than the 16# refillables

No, it is shipped empty. We have a fill station just up the road from us and it only cost us approx. $6 to fill the first time. Well worth the purchase of a new tank.

Answer: 
No, the price shown for this tank is just the tank. Most H.D. stores offer 'exchange' tanks [Blue Rhino] that are already filled. You bring in your old, empty tank & for a small fee you exchange it for one that is already filled. This cost is generally equal to or slightly higher than taking your own tank to have it filled at a propane distributor.

I am assuming the 30 is the $30 price of a new propane tank. It does not include a full tank of propane. The tank will need to be taken to an authorized filling station prior to use.

The Home Depot, typically, uses an exchange program. This program allows the customer to bring in an empty and exchange it for a full tank (20 lb tank only). Prices vary. Tanks purchased at The Home Depot must be taken to an authorized propane filling station prior to use. Recently, manufacturers began purge air from tanks (air used for pressurizing tanks during testing) prior to going to market. Not the case for all manufacturers so check your labels. Those not already purged must be purged of air during the initial filling process or you may experience difficulty lighting off the grill the first time around. Odds are you pass several gas stations, rental centers and the like that have propane filling stations. Call around, competition is fierce, prices can vary significantly. One word of caution. If you take your new "empty" tank to an exchange program you will be sacrificing your tank (good for approx 12 yrs) for a used tank which in all likelyhood will have a much shorter life span.

Answer: 
This particular tank sells as an empty tank. You can go to a local propane fill station (just use a search engine to fine one) and get it filled there. I also think Home Depot has an exchange program that is separate from this product if you just want to exchange your empty tank for a prefilled one at the store.

Answer: 
Don't switch it out with one of those prefilled tanks, to start with. Take it to a place to get it filled. I went to a local gas company that sells propane. Be sure to tell them it is the first time the tank is being filled. They have to do something special to it. It was much cheaper to fill it with propane than to get a prefilled one (by about $6), plus, you get to keep your nice, clean tank.

Not all 20 lb propane tanks come with a fuel gauge. Some manufacturers do offer such an attachment and the accuracy varies from product to product. There are a number of "stick on" heat/cold sensitive strips that are just as accurate. The Tare Weight (TW) (empty) of the tank is stamped on the collar.

Not all 20 lb propane tanks come with a fuel gauge. Some manufacturers do offer such an attachment and the accuracy varies from product to product. There are a number of "stick on" heat/cold sensitive strips that are just as accurate. The Tare Weight (TW) (empty) of the tank is stamped on the collar. Liquid propane weighs roughly 4.5 lbs per gallon. Filled to the max a 20 lb tank will hold approximately 5 gallons, however, the safety float inside the tank will cause filling to stop at four and a half gallons.
Put you tank on a scale, deduct the TW, divide the difference by 4.5 and you can figure out how much gas is left in the tank. Depending on the actual TW, a full tank is approximately 38 lbs.

Answer: 
I do not think tanks are bought back. You will have to dispose of a tank at a special drop off for paint cans, batteries, propane tanks and other "dangerous" items. Each town has a special drop off date. Check your town's calendar. You might also check with Home Depot customer service if they will accept an old tank for disposal. I hope this helps you. Good luck.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tank comes empty, but pre-purged.... so, a short ride to the nearby propane dealer, and $10 later, the tank is full, and just one more fill will break-even with the Rhino refillables. After that, I'm saving $10 every fill for 25% MORE fuel! October 25, 2016

We've been waiting for a replacement part for the gas grill we bought from Home Depot. The main lid/hood was damaged when we received it. Hope to get the hood this week - anxious to use it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service I ordered the propane tank with a gas grill online. When I arrived for pick-up, I was asked for my propane tank. I answered that I didn't have one because I had just moved here from another country and I didn't know Home Depot had an exchange program. They called a manager over who said it was OK. I was expecting to get a new tank; however, I certainly didn't mind getting a used but full propane tank. I also know where to go when it's empty. May 3, 2016
