    Whats the story with using a galvanised propane tank? I'm looking at a 120 gal vertical tank that has a galvanised finish to it. Can it be used? Whats the process to make it safe to use?

    Cheers

    Zinc on the outside is fine... Welding to it may make you sick.. It's a really nauseating sick... you won't want it again... I've had it.... I thought it was a lot worse than the flu.... chemical poisoning does really weird stuff to your body...

    Is soaking in HCl (Muriatic Acid) solution or sandblasting an option? Most LPG tanks in Australia appear galvanized . I have a very experienced welder doing the work so we should be safe enough

    Your welder will know how to deal with it... I usually just grind the weld zone...
