I gauge by the color of the flame.  I want it all blue and no yellow or orange. 

Same here.

I won't mention any names ... but BlueRhino is a ripoff! I tried to get around having to buy new propane tanks, but it didn't take me long to realize that the empty tanks I was exchanging at Depot were less than full.

There was a guy at the local tool rental place that would fill my tanks till the overfill valve acuated. But now he doesn't work there anymore. :(

Most welding supply shops fill tanks this way if you have a local shop they are always better than most of the big retail stops. I must be real lucky the one I go to here in my town has a fill 10 and get the 11th free :) @ 14.00 per fill up this has been my best find.

I is always good to own the tank, and get it filled.  This way, one can see how much was put in, and ask any questions if things don't look or sound right.
My goal is to become a better brewer!

I get my tanks filled at Costco. Just over $10 to fill.

I just picked up a Blichmann floor burner. Haven't really calculated the gas use, but it runs really quietly, the flame is very adjustable, and while not wind proof, is much better than my turkey fryer.
