Re: LP Tank mounting brackets - weld or bolt?

My only concern would be if the Propane gas tank mount would be strong enough to hold up against a crash with 15mph against a wall?
If you can expect the bolts to break, I would reconfigure the construction.

Looks great! Those double nutted bolts look plenty rigid.

That smaller diameter tank really takes a lot less room, too.
