This thing is great. Local gas station filled it no problem. The guy chuckled at the size of it at first. After talking about camping and unnecessary weight of the larger tanks he declared he would be buying one too. Holds 1.2 gallons of propane. According to google 1 gallon of propane would last 1.5 hours with a 60k btu burner. If my math isnât wrong then my 7200 btu flame king stove top would last about 12.5 hours with continuous use. Thatâs more than enough for a weekend of boiling water for coffee and dishes. It weighs 14.2lbs when full according to my bathroom scale.

Hi, we decided to buy this small 5 pounds thank to stop buying the bulky small green thanks, those disposable tanks right here in california are about $4.40 each. This tank cost me to refill at my local uhaul $4.72 for 5.2 pounds of propane this will be the equivalent of 5 small green tanks. Keep on mind that you need to buy an adapter house so you can use it in lieu of the small green tanks. In conclusion, this is an amazing purchase because you nat only saving a lot of money, is also really environmental friendly since is reusable.
If you are into camping, Overlanding or want to keep small size propane tank in the garage for heating purpose this is the one to get.

If you plan to use it for your patio BBQ, than maybe a 20# tank is what you want. But if youâre planning to use this for camping or tailgating, than the 5# is perfect. It is so much more portable than a 20# tank and wonât run empty on you like a 1# tank. It is definatly the best of both for me.
I did have some trouble getting it filled the first time. It was suggested that I return it due to a âdefective valveâ. I googled âtrouble filling propane tanksâ, and learned that the OPV can stick in the full position. This was probably a consequence of shipping. My tank responded to a bump (rubber mallet) as suggested. When I took it back, it filled up with no trouble. This problem is probably not unique to this manufactur or even this valve design but appearently, it does happen.
The date stamped on my tank was 11 months old when I received it – in case youâre wondering. Not a big deal today, but Iâm sure itâll matter to me in 11 years. Wouldnât it be nice if the price was prorated, kinda like the discount on day-old bread.
BTW, my local U-Haul filled it up with 1.2 gallons for just $4.32. Not bad.
My husband wanted a small tank to take fishing to run his light. He fishes at night most of the time and is getting to old to keep using the large 20 lb tank. Just to heavy. This is a perfect size and costs a lot less then trying to use the little green tanks that cost 3 or 4 dollars each. The problem is getting it filled for a decent price. You will have to shop around as some people want to charge for a 20 lb. We found a nice guy that will charge us $10.00 to fill it.

This thing is great for my portable grill. I live in an apartment and didnât want to carry around a 20 lb gas can.

Well made. But Iâve had it filled three times by different stations, and each time it takes 1.7 to 1.9 Gallons…Not 1? Works great for little BBQ.

The days of lugging 20 lbs of propane and weight of the tank are over. I have this for my portable gas grill and it’s way easier so I take it more often. 5 lb capacity is plenty. Ask your propane place how much to fill though-mine ripped me off charging me almost what a 20 lb costs to fill. They do it by size, not be weight of propane. So go to a place that sells by the pound. I thought mine did. But I won’t go again-I bought a high pressure fill line so I can refill it from my 20 lb myself.
