With the exception of my steel HP80, I don't like steel tanks. I had to use some borrowed ones over the weekend and I was mostly miserable. I dropped some weight to accommodate for the difference in the tanks and I still felt like I had a weight on my back that I had to be pushing around the whole time.

One of the things that I like about the aluminum tanks is that they do get lighter when they get low on air. I've been using them for so long I know when I feel a change it is time to check my air and think about heading back. It is like a built in safety feature.
