You are correct. A 30# tank holds 7.1 gallons. At 30 cents per pound, that equals about $1.28 per gallon. Was there ever a question about this?

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.
How well does this work? Do you know how much propane is actually transferred into your smaller tanks? The reason I ask is, because at every propane fill station I have been to, there has been a pump used to force the maximum amount of propane into whatever tank they are filling.

Sams Club is a Walmart Member Store and competition to Costco Stores.
There are Costco Stores in Ontario and in most States, which we us, as we wind our way to Texas every Fall and return in the Spring.

I paid a $1.70 at our local station/quick mart. That may be higher than some places in Washington because we are on an island, but their prices are pretty competitive. Two days later we paid $1.40 per gallon for home delivery. If I'd known he was coming, I would have saved the trip into town.

Sams club in Bangor Maine was rumored to be shutting down due to Costco in NB Canada. at 35% exchange on the American dollar apparently their memberships are down and they have stuff less glittery (couldn't find the proper word) than the Canadian Costco's

The CG is renting 100# cyclinder for $75 and they swap out and deliver. Only going to use for 2 months and not having to deal with it on Sunday and not listen to DW and no storage took up in moving. Very happy with the deal.
