Propane refills on Sunday

I am asking for advice and experiences from the members. I am trying to put together a list (and links) of places that our members can possibly get their propane tanks refilled (not exchanged) on Sundays...or just on the road any day. It is a huge pain to run out of propane in an unfamiliar area, then try to find a place to refill it.

Once this information is gleaned, we may put it in the library for everyone to access should the need arise while they are traveling/camping. I'm trying to keep the list constrained to national retailers.

This is what I have so far:

U-haul (some locations)
U-Haul: Propane Refill Stations

Tractor Supply (some locations and portable cylinders only)
Propane Tank Refills at Tractor Supply Co.

Ace Hardware (certain locations)
Ace Hardware Store Locator | Click Here To Find Your Local Ace Hardware Store and Services

Pilot/Flying J Travel Center (limited locations)
http://www.pilotflyingj.com/fuel-prices?filters=
http://pilotflyingj.com/assets/files...ravelGuide.pdf

Love's Travel Centers
https://www.loves.com/en/location-and-fuel-price-search

I have read that maybe certain locations of Costco and BJ Wholesale (are members only though) also refill propane but have no actual experience or clubs in my area to confirm this. Has anyone seen or done this at one of their clubs?

I want to thank everyone in advance for their help and suggestions.

I am assuming that the locations that have propane (for propane vehicles) also refill the cylinders, as that did match the pdf file and fuel price link for Louisiana at least. I put both links above for Flying J to make sure.

Keep em coming.

At Costco (Canada) you need to pay inside, not where the fill tank is. Entry is by member card so yes you need to be a member. The propane is much cheaper than on the road so I fill up at the beginning of the season.

Add you get a Good Sam discount on fuel and propane with your member card!

BJs offering fuel do have propane but it's flat fee fills only.

Many TA and Petro travel centers have propane filling - check the TA website for specifics on a location.

Many ACE Hardware stores do as well (only place in TX where I could get on Sunday and by the measure).

I have a bracket in the bed of the truck and carry a full tank in it. This way we are not slaves to finding a refill station.

In Phoenix the Shell station on Cave Creek Road just north of Bell Rd sells it for $2.59 / gallon. The U Haul on 32nd sells it for $3.59/

I have used the propane refill service at Costco and confirm it does operate - quite inexpensive too. But, as you have indicated, you do need to be a Costco member.

Also worthy of note, they don't seem to have a clear policy on how to do this. The Costco in Calgary charges me a fixed price for a tank refill. I pay up front for the size tank I need filling and then take the receipt out to the pump where the attendant fills it. If he cannot get in as much as I have paid for then I'm out of pocket. While the Costco at Kalispell, MT. filled the tank, gave me a receipt for the amount pumped to take into the warehouse and pay before returning to pick up my tank.
