Anyways, the guy wants $4/gal to fill, so I am going to take Yanche's and steamup's great advice, tractor supply has 100lb cylinders for $140.
Not all companies charge a fee. My company loans me the 100 gallon tank and regulator free of charge. I have to buy from them but they are reasonable. Last time it was $2.69 gal plus taxes and fees.
$4/ gallon may not be bad for small quanities. Last time I had a propane grill tank filled, it was $4.00a gallon. You might spend money on tanks and not save any money buying propane.
