Propane Tanks

Post by mrshaund » April 15th, 2017, 7:58 am

Hello all,

I am new here I found this site digging around for info on propane tank builds. Anyway I live in Michigan and realizing how difficult it is to find 120 gallon propane tanks here as I have called everywhere from Feral Gas to some smaller ones to be told they will not sell them or have none, so was hoping someone could help me out maybe.

Thank You

I ran into the same issue where I live so I normally use 20''-24'' pipe or old air compressor tanks. A lot of the guys have started building theirs rectangular using plate steel and they say they'll never go back to using tanks. You can look at Mack in the RF section and get some ideas from that build.

Welcome!


If it's tourist season, how come I can't shoot 'em?
