If I was starting from scratch I would probably create a tank box to fit a standard 20 lbs tank and just use a propane tank exchange instead of refilling. I don't have to worry about a steel tank rusting, the requirements changing, etc... Blue Rhino puts 15 lbs in their 20 lbs tanks. Plenty for my purposes.
