Last I bought was in Davenport, FL about 18 months ago and gave $18 + change to fill a 30# cyl. We've filled (4) 30# cyl's in the 3+ yrs we've had this trailer. Running the stove, bbq, water heater and frig on propane and stay in FL 3+ months the last 2 yrs and went to 2 Goshen rallies. Water heater and frig are on propane while traveling. Just checked and have one full tank and the other is over 3/4 full.

How much are you paying and where are you getting it?

A 30lb tank holds a little more than 7 gallons of propane. So wouldn't that be more like $1.28 +/-? Where I live, propane is sold by the gallon.

Live in Wisconsin. Do you store your gas tanks full for the winter season. We have to store outside. Thanks

Paid $239.25 to fill our 500 gal home tank to 80% of total (400 gals.). Have a liquid fill hose connection on the big tank and I fill 1lb.,20 lb. and 30 lb. at home.
Have not calculated the cost saving but its worth have the ability to fill at home.
Highly recommend if you have a home propane system, the kit is around $100.

You would think with the price drop on all fuels that propane would be cheap in all areas. Guess it must be taxes. Later RJD
