Too be fair I have had the same 3 ton floor jack and 6 ton jack stands from Hazard Frought since 2011 and they have worked nicely!

what you think of like 2 100gal propane tanks stored under cover[?]
Underground vault vs just burying the tanks? 4-5" concrete slab to contain oopsies.

I was thinking under the overhang of a shed sitting on a pallet to keep water from rusting the bottom on (wouldn't be much just run off from melting snow in the area etc) From what I read tanks in good condition/properties of propane in general has no expiration date.

I read that propane reduces the output of the generator but no more having to buy non-ethanol fuel and add sta-bil and having to circulate the fuel every few months to keep the carb cleaned sounded very nice. Propane is still very cheap too.

Not trying to talk you out of it, I just know someone who claimed he'd just finished restoring a motor home when the propane tank took off like a bottle rocket inside his garage.

Probably urban myth. They don't do that on their own unless dropped or damaged some way in the fuel valve to tank fitting. The walls on the connections of the tank are high pressure rated.

Outdoor tanks of large capacity have thick beefy tank walls. I had one outside for the 20 years I lived in that house and the paint didn't even rust on the exterior, but the valve access covers rusted apart. There's probably commercial tanks that have been in use for 50 years in remote places like Minnesota farm towns
