Re: Storing spare propane tank

Nice! I priced our standard metal tank to replace and I also like to have a spare. Close to $300 was more than I wanted to pay.

You need to give us a link to the product, too, not just a picture! What a tease!

Re: Storing spare propane tank

Check the RV sites the propane tanks are way cheaper. Only store ANY propane tanks 1 lb or larger in an approriate locker or outside the cabin. The l;ocker should have a drain at the bootom to the outside, not the bildge.

We use our second propane tank with an adaptor to fuel the magma grill eleiminating the need for the 1 lb bombs

Re: Storing spare propane tank

This report is five years old, but it has testing information on the composite tanks if anyone cares.

Yet another excellent idea! From you folks I am getting smarter every day, and I can't wait for tomorrow. Damn nice idea!

For my next project, I have a magma grill and I was thinking about how I was going to fit a Tee in the original tiny propane locker, brilliant! I will just hook it to the spare, dang!

Re: Storing spare propane tank

This is a good learning experience. Those are cool. The most challenging part will be finding a way to rationalize replacing my current tank. I have a 2004 boat with limited cooking on board. I think the tank is low now, but has never been refilled since the boat was new, so viewing the current level is not a pressing issue. I'll just fill it up once per decade and not worry about it.

BTW: Propane is commonly indoors on fork lift trucks, but special precautions are taken and spare tanks are always kept outside.

Re: Storing spare propane tank

Saw some in pix at my gas dealer the other day. I was asking about squat, 11# cylinders. They were pricey enuff! I'd hate ta see the price on FG tanks! I was inquiring originally about litle aluminum tanks.. no joy, so....
