OK, I took a dead empty tank to the Ft Myers Campground today for a
They are the ones who crack the bleeder and fill until the liquid
squirts out (those yankee campers won't trust anything else).
empty weight 16-17 pounds
full weight 35
net 18-19 pounds (within the accuracy of my scale)

Your scale may be off a little. With an accurate scale the tank
should be 18 lb empty, and 35-38 lb "full" with 17 - 20 pounds

less than 20.
I am confused. How can this be? So many others here have stated that fills
range from 9-15#, and that exchanges vary from that. Everybody can't be
right. I'll bet that company is using you after seeing your posts, and is
trying to deceive the public into thinking that there are rational
reasonable retailers out there. It's a conspiracy, I tell ya.
Good story Bub. In my time here ( which in the rural panhandle isn't
ANYthing like the image people conjure when hearing the word Florida) I've
met some of the nicest people you could imagine. Never a problem in that
regard, but the stereotypical "Redneck" lives on. (Hey y'all, watch this) I
say "Redneck" with much respect; they're good folks too. I don't know where
you live, but have any of your neighbors ever mowed your lawn without being
asked, or repaired storm damage while you were away on vacation? I've lived
in five states, including LA and the NY metro area, and wouldn't ever think
of leaving here.
If, for some reason, I HAD to leave here, there are only two alternates: The
Texas Hill Country, probably near Fredericksburg, and the Mogollon Rim area
of Arizona, near Flagstaff. Unlike TX and FL, Arizona does have a state
income tax, but it doesn't kick in until you've earned $150k, which I'll
never approach, being retired. I've visited both areas at least 7 or 8
times. I can make Fredericksburg in a non-stop 18 hours, and will do so in
July. I'll be sitting in the Luckenbach general store drinking Pearl beer
and listening to Waylon, Willie and Jeff.
Nowhere in that page does it say that arizona hasn't an income tax until
you've earned 150K. What it does say is that the top bracket is at $150K.
"Arizona's personal income tax system consists of five brackets and a top rate
of 4.54% kicking in at an income level of $150,000."
