I cant remember if it was sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore but I'll try to remember to look tomorrow.
They have a paint specific for propane tanks that I have been using on my anhydrous tanks for about 5 years now.
It too me is unbelievable at how well it holds its gloss, you cant tell a difference between the tanks I painted last year and the ones that were 5 years ago.
And get this, I used no primer and it was still only 55$ a gallon last year

Looked it up online! It's this stuff, cheaper at wall-mart!

When I used to work on drilling rigs we always used Endura paint and the shop near me that does blasting and painting uses it too. They paint a lot of grain trailers, nH3 tanks, and a variety of other ag and industrial machinery. The Endura used to hold up well and keep its gloss on the rig even with it being scrubbed almost daily. They are based out of Edmonton too. Not sure on the price point but I'm sure it's likely a lot more than that propane tank paint.

I use a typical automotive spray gun for it on my tanks but I seen a couple people rolled it on. Wasn't that bad actually. Definitely better sprayed on.
Our local co-op sells it

Not being able to find the Van Sickle paint anywhere near me, I emailed the company, apparently because they dont have bilingual labels on their products [sigh] they cannot sell in Canada.
Endura paint is priced around 2 to 3 hundred a gallon!!
So it looks like tremclad or rustoleum is gonna be what I'll end up using [about $50 a gallon]

Oh, I gotta look into the KBS rust seal as well......

We reconditioned an old guys grain trailer in our shop, new panels, sandblast and paint. He couldn't understand why paint was so much money. He asked us to do an experiment for him.
He had us leave two wheels not painted with the Endura and he provided Tremclad for use to use. One wheel we primed with the epoxy primer we used on the balance of the trailer and the other Test wheel we left bare sandblasted, and painted them both with the Tremclad.

The wheel end painted with Tremclad on the bare metal started to look rusty before the winter was over. The Tremclad over the primer did much better as far as the rust goes but the pant was dull with in a year.

So of the guys around here use Cloverdale because cost per Liter is less. Paint needs to be bought based on coverage not cost per Liter. Usually the better the paint the more solids in it and the greater the coverage.

Thanks YHMARK, that's good Info.

Maybe a little late for me... I cheaped out and bought a gallon of Tremclad from our local UFA...
I just steam cleaned it, let the water dry overnight and hammered the paint right on as thick as my sprayer would spray it, 2 or 3 coats by the time I was done farting around.. [and realised again why I like unpainted "rat rods"....]
Got away with only a few runs, looks pretty good, glossy.
[It was kind of a breezy day]
But anyways it's all done, hopefully get it filled up and let diesel prices go wild.... 20190414_160422_1555281906307.jpg

I never thought to add if using paints like Tremclad Toluene can be added to speed up the cure time. Less sagging or runs as the paint is setting up faster.
