I'm not sure I'd want to transport that Lite Cylinder very far. Something very unsettling about watching the propane splash around inside.

So I went and had another look at what my dealer gave me and compared it to my existing 20 pound tank; there's a red plastic thingy covering the valve that lets out the excess pressure. After seeing enough Mythbusters I think I'd rather have the propane burn off as opposed to having the tank explode in the event of a car crash.

Another odd thing- I couldn't find tanks at Home Depot; and when I asked the guy said they only sell the full ones.

I have bought empty tanks at Sportsmen's Warehouse in the past along with the plastic tank bases, which are great for stabilizing the tanks when transporting them. Cabela's and Bass Pro also have tanks and these stores seem to be cheaper than the dealerships or Camping World.

The newer style valves that have the proper forward threaded fitting have built in pressure relief valves built in to every new style valve. That was done for safety purposes, and every grille, camper, replacement tank, whatever uses propane must now by law have this type of valve on it. The gas companies are not allowed to refill a tank without this new type valve installed on it. What I'm saying is the tanks are the same. You buy whatever you want however, if it makes you feel safer! My 2 cents worth. Randy

Actually Randy I was agreeing with you; what the dealer tried to tell me was a "safety feature" actually made it sound like it would be less safe.
