Propane Tanks

6 posts in this topic

I'm getting kind of tired leasing a 500 gal propane tank from the local establishment and was wondering if any of you folks actually own your own and if so, how much do they run if a guy were to purchase one??

It used to run about $1 per gallon for a good used tank. Watch the papers, theres usually some for sale.

I put a 1000 gal underground tank in around 2002. Price 1500 well worth it. No looking at that ugly monstrosity, when the price is down, fill er up full.

I am replacing one in a couple of weeks. I was going to have them haul away the old one. I there a market for an old one? I would thing the regualator and pressure relief should be changed out and hydro tested.

See the purging post. I'd think that if you can find a large tank that you'd want the seller to make it totally functional.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
