Hey Cboy, hate to butt in, but I think the OP might be interested too.
Question is; What's you're take on the suppliers insisting on renting their bottles? Is it all the current federal regulations on periodic rebuild and recertification, or the suppliers just jackin profits by getting the rent and the refill costs? In recent years this has seemed to become a hassel in our area too. I would really like to own my bottles cause I don't use enough gas to warrant the expense(monthly rental)olnolan
