That's why I referenced the 20lb tank, which can be purchased for $25-$30. The math doesn't work on odd sizes.

To other posters replies...... Sure the steel tanks rust. Not horrifically, but I toss them every 5-10 yrs and buy new. I never repaint them. Therefore, the three standard tanks I can buy for the price of one composite have a combined life span that seems a lot longer than a single composite.

Someone mentioned that their propane locker gets wet. That would be a deal killer, I'm sure.
