For those not in the know, costco B&M has an empty "Pre-Purged" cylinder with overfill protection and Full/Empty Guage for 27.99. Not sure what brand it is.

For refills, check U-Haul's website for your local shop and check prices right on the website (they vary greatly, even locally between stores): http://www.uhaul.com/Propane/

That's actually LPG, a different gas.

LP = Liquid Propane as that is how it is stored when it is in the tank.

Try "liquified petroleum"...propane OR butane or BOTH....depending on the season.

Good point on the reminder that prices have gone down. I was exchanging for a while since it was more convenient. But now that prices have gone back down, I'll start going back to U-haul to refill.

Our local propane company charges $14.14 to fill these with NO additional charge to purge new tanks.

If you are just going to exchange this tank for a full one, then this deal is probably not for you. You can acquire a used one cheaper on CL to exchange.

I prefer to buy a brand new one, and have it filled locally, instead of taking a chance on the exchanged ones. I know that they're tested, but propane is expensive and dangerous, and many here have stated that the exchanged ones are not filled full.

Sears htas had this for his at a lower price very recently, and at this price pretty much all the time. I got it for $23 from Sears 2 weeks ago. I also paid just ~$14 to get it filled at $2.99 per gallon.

Propane... shake head

Seriously though, I do use propane (not for grilling though laugh out loud) and have two tanks. I bought a used tank for ~25 that was partially filled at my LP store. So this is great for a new tank, but if like new condition is o.k. with you, check out your local LP store.

Also, for those of you that have things that use the camping propane cylinders, you should look at the refill adapters: LINK [amazon.com]. I have one because I need the little tanks for my Mr. Heater and Weber grill that uses propane to ignite charcoal. It doesn't refill the tanks all the way, but it fills them enough that you don't have to keep purchasing those tanks.
This refill adapter is a very neat device. I don't have to buy those small bottles now.

Is there an adapter that connects 20lb tank with camping appliance such as small propane grill and lamp, etc?

For me this is a pretty decent deal. Around here this tank goes for ~$40 - $45 empty (HD, Lowes, Sams Club). A purge will cost ~$10 and add some more time if they do the process which captures the gas. Some places won't charge any extra money and simply release it into the atmosphere.... All depends on where you go. All fills after that period are ~5 minutes and quick and easy. Foe empty cylinders it usually costs me around 20 bucks or so. I found that if there is a little gas in the cylinder and you want to top it off before company comes over that Uhaul is a good stop as they don't charge by the pound (most places do a 20 lb tank flat fee regardless of how much they out in) but rather by the gallon. I took our tank over as it felt a little light and we were having a cook out, $13 later it was full again and I saved $7. Just my perspective on it. I'm not a big fan of the exchange...call me old fashioned but a full tank from those things runs about $65 around here (for a new tank not exchange)

Yes, I bought one via Amazon so I could run my "small bottle" devices with a larger capacity tank. I have not tried it yet though, as I still had a couple small bottles in my inventory to consume first. I bought a nice little 10lb tank that should fit under my Weber Performer nicely (gas is only used for a few minutes to ignite charcoal).

That's a good deal. Too bad that none of the stores near me offer this service. The cheapest here is $14.14 at a local gas company.

Edit: Just found a TS that offers this service for $2/gallon. Thanks for the info....repped.
