Propane tanks are not filled completely with the liquid propane as there has to be expansion room when the tank warms up and the gas evaporates for use from the fluid.

I use a 10 pound tank for the Q120 we use on the road. That is easier for me than the 20 or 30 pound sizes. I think the small tank could last almost all summer.

We use a 5# bottle with a hose for our Baby Q and cook on it a lot, and it lasts a very long time. We just returned from a 3 mos trip and the bottle still feels like it has plenty of propane in it. The 5# bottle is kind of pricey, but store very easily, not heavy and you can move it when you need or want to. We love the Baby Q

I bought my adapter to re-fill the one pounders at Northern Tool, and although I can't seem to ever get them as full as when purchased new, I've been using re-filled bottles since '08 without one problem.

Not telling you what you should do, just what has worked for me for a long time.

The one pound bottles are not designed to be refilled and eventually the seals will fail. Store the bottles upright to insure just gas escapes if the seal fails or the pressure release opens. Liquid propane escaping is the danger. Other wise get the savings. If you have the large bottle up right while you refill the 1# cylinder then you are only filling with gaseous propane.
