Food for less has them for about 39.99 for the filled tank. Best price I have found so far. Give them a call. I think an exchange is 13.99 Mine last all year, and I keep a second for deep frying turkeys. MMM, deep fried turkeys....

I have seen refills anywhere from 12.99 to 15.99 depends on where you go. Word of advice, get two tanks, so you always have a full one on backup, even with the gauge to show how much is in there, it always seems to empty right in the middle of a big cookout.

If you run a line from your house, make sure it is varmint proof and has a shut-off that you use every time.

HOme Depot, Lowe's and Menard's are reasonable too for new tanks and exchanges. I think I spent $45 at Lowe's when I bought a grill for the Outlaws this year for an anniversary present.

Chipmunks and the rubber hoses. Valve the line off and don't keep the hoses pressurized (granted, it's only about 4 lbs).

I picked up a newly refurbished tank for $30 at my local propane company (Country Gas); the tank looks brand new to me.

You can sometimes get free empty tanks from Craigslist. Just take it in and swap it out for less than $20.

Most grills if converted from LP to natural gas require a different pressure regulator.

you do need to find a grill that will run off both if you want to do that.

Webers and Ducanes have them don't bother if you have a Charbroil or some other lump of metal.

I've never owned a gas grill, and I never will. If ya gonna use a gas grill, might as well save the money and use the damn oven in your kitchen.
