I'm trying to get a pair of customer-owned 1000 gallon underground
propane tanks installed in New Hampshire.  I had talked to a couple
of propane dealers who would supposedly do the job but they just faded
away.  (They obviously preferred to rent the tanks to me.  I wish they
had said up front that they wouldn't do the job rather than stringing
me along and disappearing...)  The general contractor thought he could
buy the tanks but found that it has to be done through a propane
distributor.  Can anybody recommend a propane company in New Hampshire
that is friendly to (or at least not seriously hostile to) customer-owned
tanks?

Just asking.

I don't think so; they were happy to _rent_ me underground tanks.  One
place even has a page on their web sight about how nice these are for
locations where an above-ground tank would be ugly...  But if that is
the sticking point I'll give in and go with above ground.
