What do folks think the sweet spot for a propane tank size it (volume wise)?
You can get the larger ragasco for less. Think I paid $90. They both have the same diameter and its not a lot of extra weight to carry in case you need the volume. I usually take mine with whatever gas is in it ( half full ) as I don't need to refill it as often.Looks like one of the few composite options out there now in that volume is the Ragasco 11# tank. I found it PropaneProducts.com - Heaters, Parts, Regulators, Fittings, Repair for $117 plus shipping. Anyone find it or a similar composite tank somewhere else for less?
Interesting. Is the fitting for a powerstove or partner a male POL or acme type 1 like this:Remember those propane trees only have the small coleman type fittings. for a partner stove and a woodland powerstove you need the large fittings. I purchased this to use with the 5lb steel tank and everything works fine.
Amazon.com - Mr. Heater Propane Y Female Adapter with Handwheel 2-Female P.O.L.'s with Acme Threads and P.O.L
it works with both so it is basically replicating the same fitting that is on the tank itself. The picture on Amazon isn't quite right and is more like the one you posted.
