When I get my 20 pound tank filled, they pump it from a larger tank. I had two 30 pound tanks that expired. It was much cheaper to buy 3 20 pound. And now they do an exchange, empty for full. That saves them time, and saves me the problem of expiry.
In my area having a tank outside is fine. Up North they can freeze, and the propane will not flow. So they take them inside for a while to warm up.
I will never go to a place where a propane tank might freeze.
We have a 5 pound tank on the boat for the BBQ. SOS provided good info.
