That's true about trading your tanks in and getting an old tank that has rust and probably a shorter life on the valve that has a limited life span. We had both of our tanks stolen off of our Bullet a couple of years ago and went to a propane dealer and ended up with older tanks as opposed to purchasing new expensive ones. Anyway we protected the tanks by drilling a 1/2 inch hole in the cross bar that holds them and another 1/2 inch hole in the v nut that snugs them down and then dropped a pad lock thru both holes. Thus theft problem solved.

Try these. They are pretty new to the market but you can see how much propane you have left in the tanks. Whenever we reach the point of having to buy new tanks I'll be looking to buy these.

To oops FR3 what's the reason? Just querulous. I have a F150 EB wit HT and Heavy Payload (2,393 - now their 3,300), great for HT 5r.

Anyone got a list?

Thanks, bunches!
we just ordered new FR TH. Bumper to ball a bit over 30 ft. 30s were an option. Next size up they are standard. Popularity at least out west is less heating going on, and easy nearly 24/7 to swop out 20s at gas stations an markets everywhere.

We took the 30s. We can always toss a 20 in as our spare or in an emergency, get one at the market.

I checked out the composite propane cylinders and they are triple the cost of a regular tank. For all I would have to move them to refill I could not justify the cost.
So far in camp grounds we have been in I have yet to see any here in the Okanagan. The light weight is a great feature.
