Costco sells empty 20 lb propane tanks for $29.99. Scroll down for photos. For those of you who have propane BBQ’s, you’re probably very familiar with these. I have a propane BBQ & I have 2 tanks at all times. I like having an extra one in case I run out & also in case of an emergency. Even if you don’t have a propane BBQ, these are great to have in case of an emergency. You can buy an outdoor gas range to go with the tank & have a portable stove for under $100. With all the natural disasters happening these last few years, this is a really inexpensive way to prepare for a disaster. 20 pounds of propane lasts a long time on my smaller 3 burner grill too. Here are a few more details about this Costco Propane Tank…….
- Brand: Flame King
- OPD Valve & Gauge Included
- Powder Coated Finish

Costco Propane Tank, 20 lb w/ Pressure Gauge
Most big box stores sell these propane tanks for around $30. The deal you are getting here is that this tank comes included with the pressure gauge. A pressure gauge is really nice to have on a propane tank so you have an idea of when you need to get a refill. Last thing you want is to run out of propane during a big BBQ & have to run to the refill station. I also can’t stress enough the importance of having propane for an emergency. If the gas/electricity gets cut off, this is a very simple way to cook food. Take a look at the link below (GasOne B-5300) & you will see what I mean. It’s also a great way to cook crab so the house doesn’t smell. Here are a few HIGHLY RECOMMENDED items to go with the propane tanks…….
- GasOne B-5300 One High-Pressure Outdoor Propane Burner Gas Cooker Weld, Black
- GasOne 50120 Propane Gauge for Propane Tanks
- Blackstone 28 inch Outdoor Flat Top Gas Grill Griddle Station – 2-burner – Propane Fueled – Restaurant Grade – Professional Quality
Price: $29.99, Item Number: 261685
