Propane Tank

One of my propane tanks could not be filled. It would not take propane even though the tank is empty. They think it has a bad valve. Has anyone had this problem, and if so, was it cheaper to have the valve replaced or buy a new tank?

They aren't full to 80%, but close. At least they are in good shape, or are supposed to be.

If the "cylinder" wouldn't take LP and is empty be weight, then I'd put a new valve on it.

I would get the valve replaced. Plenty of life in that tank.
