So finding an island for said campfire is a better solution? What if there aren't any? The corrosion of the aluminum tanks takes time (especially if they're not dangling in deep blue seawater). Up til now, the eventual loss of a tank from corrosion has been an acceptable issue, since there has been no other option for propane tanks (remember that service life for these tanks requires pressure testing every 5 years anyway). The new glass tanks remove the corrosion constraint, and they are less costly than aluminum. I don't really see why a leaky tank is where the focus is. I'd be more concerned with the inboard (and usually hidden) lines between the tank and stove, than the tank itself.
