If a propane tank has rust on it should I replace it?

    Depends how rusted it is. If it’s just surface rust, you should scrub/sand off the rust and repaint the tank. You’re best off painting it a light color (white is the general go-to) to keep it from absorbing too much heat. If the rust is significant and is causing pitting, you’re better off just replacing the tank with a new one. You can contact your local DEC or DEP to learn how you can recycle the old one.
