I just had one of my two 30# tanks changed, recertified and filled in El Paso, TX. Cost- $37.00. And I was lucky, most all distributors here are on a 1-1 1/2 yrs back order for 30# tank valves! Population and demand I reckin' Oscar

1 1/2 year backorder?????!!!

Yikes! I got one of my two done for $47, this spring including a fill up. Have not used up one tank yet this summer. Check out Flying J's prices for propane, nearest one to me charges $1.19 per gallon. If it gets cold this weekend I use some.

i have steel worthington 30 lb tanks, can't remember what it was a gallon (little over a buck it seems).

propane here is lower in the summer due to low demand.

The old owner had replaced with new steel tanks...went back to him and got old alum tanks (he was about to throw away)..a had
new valves $15.00 dollors each ,installed for $10.00 each, and filled for $13.00 (30pd)...much happier with old tanks ...problem now ; i here the valves are getting hard to get and will get harder to get as cold weather gets would not wait..just shop around..and if you need some that post someone had about his tanks coming loose and riding up under the trailer till one wore a hole in its side.....if they would have been steal....i dont want to think what would have happened..

On 5-13-02 I posted that a place in LaVergne/Smyrna, TN. was replacing OPD valves for $10 each tank and this included testing along with a quick shot of paint if it needed it. Within a month the price increased to $12 then $15 each tank. I'd say it is higher than that now. I guess it is all about supply and demand. I still have one tank to have an OPD valve fitted but it is full right now. TN. is one of those states that has not complied with the regulation as of yet.
