Cone for propane tank

Any one ever make a cone for a 500 gallon propane tank?

What should it be made out of 1/4 inch?

I have no way to roll them. Any idea what a fair price for a shop to charge to roll a 41" diameter / 45 degree cone would be?

I know a shop that can roll up to 3/4. Will get a quote from them tomorrow.

You don't need a cone for a propane tank, the dome end works perfectly.

OK. Still curious about doing it.

At the very least I would like to do one tank and just see how it compares when using the tank to heat and settle oil.

The reason being is that I have a large oil collection company helping me set a company up. So I told them my plan to use 500 gallon tanks to save on set up costs and their only issue was that it wasn't a true cone bottom. So as far as they are concerned it's not as good.
