Most locations charge for as much as 20lbs. You"ll more than likely be paying a premium to fill up a 30lb tank. Just get 2 20s.

As you"re buying indigenous Costco, you"ll probably fill at Costco.They have a 20 and also 30 to fill price (same rate, just 1.5x) or some go by the LNo worries there.I had a 30 prior to switching to NG.It"s nice come not have to fill as often. However, if you desire it tucked in under the BBQ, it might not fit. The old BBQ had actually a circle cutout in the base where you would put your tank. However the 30 didn"t fit, had actually to sit ~ above the ground beside it (house right reached, but worked)Something to keep in mind as well.

I would get 2 20lb tanks. You"ll remorse the larger tank when you need to fill it. It"d be fairly unwieldy when full.

Does a 30 lb tank also fit in the BBQ?Anyhoo, two tanks is much more convenient and in a way, cheaper. Remember, they don"t charge you for what you put in the tank. They charge you to to fill up the tank. If you have actually two 20 lb tanks, you have the right to use one until it"s empty, and also then automatically switch come the various other tank. V each fillup, girlfriend are getting a full tank"s worth of fuel.If you only have actually one 30 lb tank, you"ll need to fill up when you still have part of the tank left, if you want to prevent running the end of gas in the center of a BBQ. That means you don"t obtain your money"s worth.

Take her Costco receipt earlier to the attendant who retrieves tank from locker

That"s the older device some Costco stores use. Pay before pump, salary one price nevertheless if the tank is empty or fifty percent full.

Definitely 2x 20 pounders. If you"re ever in a actual pinch part Walmarts have self offer exchange devices that work-related 24/7. Plus every the other exchange services use 20 pounders.When that is -20 you may choose to swap tanks vs. Stand around while someone filling yours as Costco.
