We.looked at a lot of local places that had the 33 pound propane tanks, and they were all $200+ I have owned many of these tanks and this is the best one yet. The valves and the gauge is the best quality and made from brass. The others I have owned might have been brass but not as strong. I'm one our other tank goes out or starts leaking I'm going to replace it with another one like this. If you are reading this and have a question please respond and I will get back to you.
