Why upgrade to 30s, when you already own perfectly good tanks and by carrying a spare 20# (three total) you have the same number of gallons (about 14 gals, if truly full). 20s are lighter and easier to lift and can be exchanged when the tank is out of date... or when in a pinch. These are the folks (nearly all of them) that short us by a gallon or more on each exchange. You are lucky if an exchanger gives you 3.7 gallons; so consider that when you price around and know that your tank won't "go" as far when exchanged, rather than filled by a reputable company... that means your tanks will have 25% less "life". It is possible that a company like Costco selling you 3.6 gallons still has the best per gallon price, however if you want it full, you won't get it there. The only issue I can see with carrying a spare (or two) is how to do it safely.

I have several 20#s for spares, so that will work for me.

PH, you might need three 30s... one held in spare... you really use your TH and use it where many fear to tread... away from an RV resort....

At my seasonal campground, they charge a flat rate of $25.00 to fill/top-off a 30. I just drive 1-1/2 miles to the Amish hardware store and pay 30 cents per pound, and I only pay for what I need.

I filled a 100 lb a few weeks back for $45. It was brand new and took 23.1 gals. No I don't travel with this tank, it stays home and keeps the furnace supplied during the winter. We use the TT frequently during the winter months and don't winterize it for that reason. (Live just south of Atlanta. )

WW- good point I have at least 3 extra 20lb bottles in my garage including a brand new one for barbecue that never got installed lol ---

There are propane station at almost every other gas station out here in the west -huge rip of using those propane exchanges but I guess some are willing to pay the convenience.

I'm thinking I need to get a couple of those propane patio heaters for the garage this winter for kiteboarding - at the ocean get kinda cold hanging out in the wind rain with garage door open in a wetsuit drinking a nice cold beer 😁😁
