If one is really desperate, an exchange from HD or Lowes works well. Wally World if one is REALLY desperate. Most CGs do refills, some at less $$ than ACE. TSC is pretty good on $$ as well. CW of course, most days of the week and 25% off on Tue/Wed.

Handy!

You can pick this up hardcopy at any of their locations too.

http://pilotflyingj.com/assets/files...ravelGuide.pdf

Finally found this too while digging through my smartphone bookmarks and it only gives filling stations, no bottle exchanges:

http://www.afdc.energy.gov/fuels/propane_locations.html

Drill through the specific location information and you'll get hours.

Speaking of smartphones, if your in an area where you can use Google Maps, just do a search for "propane". Sometimes you'll get the hours with the search results, but always a phone number.

Many private camp grounds operate propane refilling stations. Also check marinas and hardware (in addition to Ace which I see you did list). Some grocery stores have 20# tanks pre-filled and run a tank exchange service. During camping season, many RV dealers are open for business, and most refill propane.

I was just at a Love's Travel Center about 60 miles from my house, and I spotted a brand new propane bulk refill station near the RV dump station.

Just another place to keep in mind while traveling or need something after hours and/or on Sunday.

What I didn't get in the pic, is there is a box just to the right, which you press or call inside the store for propane service.

Costco (member only). Bring tank(s) to the fill station, push the call button & an attendant will come out and fill your tank(s). He'll give you a receipt with the amount filled and you go inside and pay. Bring him the receipt to claim your tank(s). A bit of a pain waiting for an attendant then having to go into the store to pay but, worth it at $1.69/gal this past January in Myrtle Beach.

Who Recertifies Ten Year Old Tanks

Not to change the subject of the thread very much, but I have been 'turned down' for a 'refill' once because....It now seems to be the law that tanks that are refilled need to be re certified every ten years. Do you know of a list of propane tank certification places?
Has any one been 'turned down' on refilling a tank before?
Thank-you

Not a new law. Need to be re-certified 12 years from date of manufacture I believe. Have heard it is as cheap just to purchase a new one. Lowes sells them for 29.99.
