I got to thinking about what kind of markup would be reasonable if it is delivered to a tank and $1 a gallon probably is about right. And in situations where the dealer is providing the 10 gallong tanks the same markup seem reasonable. It is apparent that you can't assume those tanks will last a lifetime. One of mine was rattling and the dealer just switch it out. Those tanks are almost $400 new. Since it is apparent that dealers probably buy a given amount over a fixed period that makes it risky for him.
