Default Time to fill my propane tank. I own it. Who do you use?

Tank is getting pretty close to empty... I own the tank, so no games or BS...

Who are you using here in SE Florida (Broward / Palm Beach boarder)?

Thanks,
Pete

I own my tank and use Amerigas. They usually deliver within a day or two. The best time of year to buy is early December when they offer a seasonal sale.

Just called... I own the tank too... and Amerigas did the install.
They have a yearly special. If I call after 3/1 they are at $1.99 + about $20 in fees.

Not bad compared to the BS that Suburban would pull back when I rented a tank!

I'm north of you but signed a 3 yr contract with Amerigas for $1.93 gl. The tank is 500 gl but normally use about 200gl a year. They only fill it once a year before hurricane season.

LOL! I know... they lady wanted to "test" my system. It was free... but I said no thank you. It was still $3.65 a gal AFTER the testing. I went for the $1.99 on 3/1

In Palm Beach county I use Beeline, they are usually the best priced with no service contract.

Call around and find the cheapest or best deal for you. It's all the same stuff.

I use Amerigas, its their tank. I don't use much so it seems they always have a "new customer price" when it goes a year between fill ups.

What are you guys running off propane to go a year without fillups?
Seems like I'm much more frequent than that. Stove, water heater, dryer, house furnace all running on my house.

Sorry, should have explained......it only runs the hot tub. It was that way when we bought the house, all electric inside and they had the spa heater hooked up to this giant tank. Maybe one day I'll get that outdoor kitchen and have it hooked to the gas.

We run the fireplace (rarely), grill, stove, pool heater (rarely) 48kw gen, and two tankless heaters. As I mentioned above we use approx. 200 gl per year with a 500 gal tank. They actually only put 400gl in tank 80% because of expansion. 100 gal tank they only put 80 gal in it.

Really!?!?! I'm interested. I'm ready for a fill up... let me know what the price is, total - delivered. I own the tank, all installed with City permits, etc. PM me the price. I'm at around 15% now... so I can wait a little while if it makes it better until the dude's in my area.

I run the range (high BTU unit) and the grill outside. We generally get about a year out of the tank, so we aren't high volume users at all.

Use small business owners. The big ones like suburban Amerigas and Ferrell only want to force you into yearly contracts. I work in the lp industry and can and tell you that they are crooks. Hogan gas/ marks gas, and beeline distributor are gonna be your best bet, price em all out and tell them you will pay cash. cash speaks heavily in the lp industry. I hope this helps.
