I bought mine at a Cenex Farm Store. I have seen them at Sam's Club and Costco, as well as Home Depot and Lowes.
Sometimes they are in stock, sometimes not.
Good luck in your search.

I bought these from a local propane distributor. Expect them to be at least as much as a 20# cylinder if not more due to lower demand.

I wouldn't buy propane tanks online unless you have no other choice. They are heavy and bulky to ship.

The only reason I bought 11# instead of 20# cylinders is they are for a Scout troop and needed them lighter for the boys to carry. I also wanted the pancake shape so they won't tip.

The local home depot has them, but the price is pretty outrageous.

Just bought one at Camping World this morning, about $52.00.

If you think the purchase price is ridiculous, just wait until you fill it.

No problem around here, I get charged for exactly the gallons put in the bottle according to the meter.
No flat fee, no chicanery of any kind, just pay for the gallon(s) dispensed!

Our Home Depot has them for about $60.00. I bought one
from them. Then had to go to Camping World the next day
and they had them for $54.00 regular, then with discount
bought it. Took back the Home Depot one.

Dittos here. I have the 5lb one and with 1 gallon of capacity it is only ~$2.50 to fill.

To be nice I only fill it when I have at least one other 20lb to fill up at the same time.


Posted By: belfert on 09/20/10 06:34pm

I have only found one or two places even remotely near by that charge for fills by the pound. Everyone else charges for a full 20# cylinder no matter how much or little propane they put in. They even charge the 20# rate for the 11# cylinders.

Our town in Colorado has three propane sellers that I know
of. Only one tries to gyp you to pay a set fee for a 20lb.
If you press them to pay by the gallon, they will do it.
If you show up with a 30 lb tank, they will fill by gallon
as it is not considered for BBQ ?? Who made up that rule?
I rarely go there anymore. Still, propane here is more
expensive than diesel fuel.

Bought the one from Camping World on sale. First time ever I found something there cheaper than anywhere else. Paid by the gallon to fill and it works great and is easy to move around. I figure after I use one tank full it will have paid for itself instead of using those little one pound cylinders.
