I have a 30 pounder which I purchased as a "takeoff" from Jim (tare wgt.=18.8lbs matching that of 20lb. steel tank and 12.5Kilogram=27.5lb [nominally 30] capacity for full wgt=48lb.) I like everything about the tank: reduction in tare wgt.; visibility of contents. It is marked "Life of tank 15 years.." Not sure if this is the reinspection interval. I also have a steel 40pounder which is a weighty proposition to get on and off the tongue.

I have the 10 pound one, which replaced a 30 pound steel monster that came with my trailer. I don't heat with the tank - it just powers cooking - so I like not driving around with 5 years worth of propane stuck to the trailer.

We did macgyver up a strap thingie to hold it down.

Interesting... would be ice to have an idea of how much fuel is in the tank, and it looks like the 20lb composite tank is 18" tall and so is the steel tank so it should fit. I do use heat, but if I could honestly look at the tank and know its mostly full so Im good for a weekend why carry an extra 40lbs on the tongue with a steel tank thats full when 1 composite tank would do...Ive seen the 25lb tanks for sale not finding a 30 lb'er.

25 lb is the max size when I last looked and yes, with the visual aspect you could eliminate the dual tank set up to save weight.

LP Tanks and Heater Accessories by LITE CYLINDER - LP and Butane Fuel Tanks by Zoro Tools Industrial Supplies

Largest LC I could find currently. After further reading, I believe "15 yr. life of tank" is just that; I also would like to know where and how the inspection interval is marked on tank.

Is the case color really green? Description says "Natural". The green doesn't really go with my glamping decor color scheme. This green is the only large size I've been able to find. Shuuuuuuuuuuukkkkkkkkkkksssss!

This is tank I bought from Jim. It is marked 12.6 kilograms on the plastic cage but "full" is apparently 11.6 kilo or 25.5lb rather than 12.5 Kilo or 27.5lb. I'd say it's a "tweener" and invites misinterpretation of capacity based on labelling. It's included on the LC website but I can't find it for sale except with the green plastic cage.

Actually Jack, that is not the one I sold to you, mine was a vertical tank, the one above is a horizontal tank. Here is the one you have

Jim, I knew that! Actually I did know the difference and still posted the wrong link. The 25 pounder (upright) does seem to have disappeared from the offerings of a number of internet sellers. Here's the one:

Specs are the same as for the horizontal tank.
