    This is how Suburban Propane got them off the truck when they swapped them out back in '09. Wow! I didn't have much of a wood pile back then did I!

    My supplier charges a premium for my small deliveries, but it's $.20/gal. Suburban strikes again?

    120 gallon DOT tanks can be placed right next to the house. Larger tanks have to be placed a minimum distance from the house depending on the size.

    I bought a 120 gallon tank from Home Depot for $480. Not all HD stores have them, though. I've also seen them on ebay for about the same price. I also bought a used one on Craigslist for $250.

    Suburban is notorious, lots of people have found they try to charge people to remove the tanks.
