Default 100# propane tank

I am gonna go and pick up a new 100# Propane tank up at lowes. I was wondering if anyone knows about how long this would last with a Banjo Burner. I'm going with the bigger tank to try and minimize how often I need to refil.

The big question is how do you get it filled and transport it?

That would be the biggie for me, that's for sure. Around here you aren't allowed to transport larger than 20lbs tanks without a proper truck with proper markings etc.

Ideally you want to keep propane in an open vehicle (bed of a truck) when transporting. My friend frequently fills 100# tanks, and has not had a problem driving up to the welding shop with a tank or two in the back of his car. Not recommended, but he hasn't been denied.
