put it on a cart.

if you ask nicely, the store should have some sort of dolly or cart, they might let you borrow it if you leave a deposit, or something important so they know it will be returned. Its not that an empty 50g tank is heavy, its that it is an awkward size which makes it difficult to carry. And two people over a long distance...what a pain in the....

But in all seriousness... I don't think you are going to get an employee to help you carry it home. Do you have Taxis where you live? If it's only a 20 minute walk it must be a very short drive and will probably cost next to nothing.

This is by far the best solution if you don't have a friend with a truck or SUV.

yeah if you try to carry it home I think it would take an hour because of all the rest stops you'd be making.... I mean unless you are some type of endurance athlete you are going to have to put it down at least once...

you might want to practice holding 20 lbs out at shoulder level, one in each hand, for 20 minutes...

have you asked the people at the shop if you can pick up the tank to see how heavy it is??

there has to be someone around with a truck/van/SUV??
