    That's pretty much standard code anywhere for residential propane tanks. I have a 1000 gallon one buried that runs my heat, stoves, dryers, etc.... I have been thinking of adding a generator since, with this tank, fuel will not be much of an issue.

    I am from South Dakota and when I think of propane tanks, I think of the above ground white tanks. I honestly had no idea people buried them.

    I thought the buried tank referred to a diesel tank. Propane would not have nearly the same enviromental impact from a leak.

    Yup, it's code. You can do up to 400g above ground, which would be 4X100g tanks, which would also be big $ and take up a lot of room in her small yard. Either requires getting permits, inspections, etc.

    There is a Hank Hill meme in there somewhere.

    An old joke... A white guy jumps out of the plane and pulls the parachute rip cord and it doesn't open. He pulls the backup cord and it doesn't deploy! All of a sudden he meets a black guy on the way up. As they pass the white guy yells.... Do you know anything about parachuuuuuutes?? The black yells back.. No. Do you know anything about gas stovessssss?? No racism intended.

    Update. Did the full testing. You can stand next to the box while generator is on and talk at just above normal volumes. It cuts the sound down considerably, I'd guess 30db. I do have a db meter and may use that for official test, but box works well for its intended use overall and muffler works better than expected sound wise.

    With AC at 78f, fridge, lights in one room, all else off, it's a tad under 50% load of the generator, so about 10-12 hours run time per tank. A 55g drum of gas would give adequate run times for typical power loss in the area. Beyond that, gas stations open and so forth.
