actually- four common sizes- 5, 10, and 20 lb tanks are usually for bbq grills and such, and 30 lb. which is generally used for forklifts and such for steel tanks.. Aluminum tanks are usually 6 lb. and 11 lb. Fiberglass tanks are usually 10, 20 and 30 lb. BTW, the 30 lb. tanks shouldn't be used with bbq grills as a general rule, since they don't have a restrictor to prevent liquid propane from getting out of the tank to the device. Liquid propane getting into a grill is a bad thing.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
