I read that if you put your C02 tank in the fridge you use 2 times the amount of C02 because it is cold. Is this true? I have a Danby beer fridge and put my 5 lb. tank in the fridge beside my keg. I carb downstairs and only use the fridge for serving.

I've heard the same thing. I keep my tank in the fridge as well, but I'm getting roughly the same number of kegs per tank as others, so I don't think it's true.

I cant see how you would use any more by having a cold co2 can. Colder = smaller volume, but at the same time it will be in solution at a pressure. I can see it making a very minor difference but not twice the amount.

I have a 5lb that's been in the fridge since I got it in 2015...
I literally just got it re-filled for the first time this past weekend.
I've only done about 12 kegs (*12? maybe more- hmm), but that included initial forced carbing. And also using it for cleaning keg lines. Not that it takes any appreciable pressure to do that.
