Blue Rhino tanks are a SCAM. The company is trying to differentiate a commodity product. It's propane and not worth the money they charge. The way Blue rhino makes money is that they don't fill the tank all the way up to its rated capacity. Your better off buying a empty propane tank at Sam's and having it filled yourself. You can't take a Blue Rhino tank to get filled at a filling station because they have different fittings.

Yes i noticed this too. When I got my tank filled it was way heavier than one of the exchange tanks for the same price of about $20. I dont remember the exact numbers but you can look how much propane weighs and then compare it to the amount Blue Rhino and American Gas fills them to the weight you get if you get it filled on your own
