propane transfer pump

just like the title says does any one have any idea on where i could get a LPG propane transfer pump. i have been told they are out there but i have no idea on where to get one. i got my truck converted and i would like to fill it up at home instead of driving 40 miles round trip to get propane.
thanks

I assume you already have a tank at home. If so, does it have an outlet on the bottom? If it does you can connect to the bottom outlet with a hose and just let the pressure of the propane push the liquid propane into your other tank. This is what we used to do.

Hmm, we have abunch of propane tractors, and the propane comes straight out of a valve through a hose, into the tank. Vents pressure to allow the gas to flow, never done it anyother way

Some tanks have both the liquid and gas valve on the top. The liquid valve has a dip tube inside the tank which goes to just off the bottom of the tank. It should be marked if your tank has one (right next to the fill and level guage).
