Depends on the cost of propane at the time. Like gasoline prices, it varies. Ours usually costs $22 to fill.

May be the regulator.

Try this:
CLOSE the BBQ tank valve
Connect the tank to the regulator and hose.
Disconnect the hose at the BBQ
ENSURE NO OPEN FLAME IN THE AREA
VERY slowly open the valve on the tank.
If you hear a hissing / smell gas, then the tank's valve, the regulator and the hose are OK.
It may be a plugged inlet in the BBQ's or spider nests in the BBQ's vents...use a vent cleaner kit and follow instructions.

If you DO NOT hear a hissing of gas / no propane smell, then it is either the valve on the tank or the regulator.

To determine if it is the tank's valve, close the tank valve, and SLOWLY unthread the black valve connector. You should hear a very short hiss and smell propane very briefly. If you do, then it is the regulator. If you do not, it is the valve on the tank.

Based on the above:
(1# Return the tank
#2) Purchase new regulator and hose.

We are unable to answer your question with the details that are given. It sounds like something is wrong with whatever is connecting the tank to the BBQ. If the tank is full and the BBQs are operational, there would have to be an issue with the connection. We would suggest you y take this in somewhere to be checked.

is the 20lb OPD tank full when purchased

In Ontario, they only fill tanks to approximately 80% by weight...transportation law.

NEVER transport a tank on the side.
NEVER transport in a trunk / hot car; leave windows open...

If you use your BBQ a lot and refill / transport the tank often, you should consider getting a base for the tank - black ring that snaps on and off the bottom of the tank to keep it upright. Haven't seen it at CTC, but other places sell them for less than $10.00.

They are not full when bought from the shelf. Alot of stores do have Propane fill stations though and will fill it for you when you buy it. Some stores pre-fill tanks and lock them outside so you can just grab and go as well. Check and see if your local store has a propane filling station by using the store locator on the website.

Question

Fuel Gauge

How does the fuel gauge on this work? I see only a dial on top that looks like a sun and a snowflake on it, but the dial seems to stay in the middle.
Any one know how it's supposed to work?
Thanks..

The gauge to be placed on the opposite side where the hose for your BBQ is attached to the tank. It's a small nozzle that you just hold against it. It will tell you how much propane is in the tank. You may have to turn the tank to read the gauge. It does work quite well, takes away all the guessing.
