Do propane prices change?

Propane prices respond to supply and demand changes quickly, such as to unexpected cold or warm weather, supply interruptions, or excess production. These changes may be reflected in the wholesale price of propane, which will affect our delivery prices.

 

Why isn't my tank filled to 100% capacity?

Propane is delivered and stored in its liquid form, which will expand into a gas which would take up to 17 times as much volume as water kept at the same temperature. Because of this, propane tanks and cylinders are filled to about 85% capacity in order to leave space for propane to expand freely in response to temperature changes.

 

The temperature of your propane changes due to the temperature of the air surrounding the container. Hot days, cool nights, and both rain and snow can have an impact, and these various conditions may cause fluctuations in the readings you see in your container gauge.

 

Is propane an environmentally friendly fuel?

Propane is one of the cleanest burning fuels available, making it a clear choice for environmentally conscious homes and businesses. It burns cleaner than gasoline and other fossil fuels, emits lower levels of carbon dioxide and particulates, and doesn't produce sulfur dioxide, which is a primary cause of the greenhouse effect. Additionally, it is non-toxic and vaporizes quickly so it won't contaminate soil or groundwater.

 

Propane is also a natural by-product of the crude oil and natural gas refining processes, meaning there is an extremely plentiful supply of it.

 

How can I convert gallons to cubic feet?

The conversion of gallons of propane to cubic feet may vary based on your particular altitude, the current temperature, and your specific meter type.

 

How do I read the gauge on my propane tank?

If your tank has a gauge, it will typically be located on the top of the tank under a small hood. We do offer automatic delivery services, however, based on your typical propane use trends, so that you never need to worry about tracking your propane levels.
