Propane Tank "Shortage"
Posted by MDSasquatch on 09/23/2010
Maybe it is just me, but it seems like the tanks I get when I swap out an empty for a new tank aren't as full as they used to be. I used to get one tank and it would last through the summer; I am now on my third tank of the summer. My grilling habits haven't changed and my grill doesn't have any leaks. The service is convenient, but I am not sure the tanks are being filled to their full potential.

Not really a true complaint; more like an aggravation.

most propane companies haven't filled the 20lb tanks to 20lbs in a couple of years. Instead of raising prices, they just lowered the amount of propane to 18lbs or even down to 15lbs
I occasionally get propane from home depot and their tanks are now labled with stickers that say 'filled with 15lbs' because the supplier is in a lawsuit over reducing the amount of propane and not telling people.
I ususally take my empty tank to be filled and they will generally go to 19 or 20lbs. If it works for you I would go that route instead of exchanging them

That is exactly what I am going to do; for now, I need to do an exchange that results in a tank that I want to keep for a while and then find a place that fills on-the-spot

Blue Rhino sure charges like they filled the tanks up completely. I have 4 of their tanks. Makes you wonder. I actually have thought, wow I went through that fast. I guess I now know why.
Thanks for the review.
