The hose is sufficient for the flow. Just because the tank is so big doesn't mean you will use the propane any faster.

My mom had a 250 gallon tank that was at least 50’ from the house. The Regulator looked The same as I have on our trailer and like said above you don’t need a bigger line. The propane company that comes to fill it will help point you in the right direction.

Most large home supply tanks will have two regulators. One at the tank and one on the house near the line entrance.

With a long line, there will be some friction loss, as the gas moves it thru it. The first regulator has a higher pressure to overcome that loss and the second cuts it back to usable pressures.

Thanks again the local propane company it felt they weren't very interested in helping so off to the other company
