WHEN DO I CALL FOR A DELIVERY?

HOW DO I READ THE GAUGE ON MY TANK?

500g tank11

Your gauge will be located under the lid on the top of your tank. Simply lift the lid and find the dial with numbers 5 to 95. Those numbers indicate the percentage of propane in your tank.

CALL TO SCHEDULE YOUR DELIVERY WHEN YOUR TANK READS BETWEEN 20-30%. 

Keep in mind we deliver to 3 counties and are in specific areas on different days. If you are very low on propane and need an emergency delivery there will be additional charges to send the driver to your area. Illinois law states, that if your tank is empty and without pressure we are required to perform a leak and safety check on your system. This will incur an additional charge above the cost of your propane. These charges are in addition to the cost of the propane. An adult will need to be present for us to perform this service.

When to fill tank

WHY ISN’T MY TANK FILLED TO 100 PERCENT CAPACITY?

Your propane is delivered and stored in liquid form. Propane liquid will expand and become a gas at temperatures above -44 degrees. To allow room for expansion, tanks and cylinders are never completely filled with propane liquid. Tanks are filled to about 80 to 85 percent of their capacity. This leaves a space above the liquid, which allows the propane liquid to expand freely due to changes in temperature.
