*edit: 3rd line in your link under 'Quick Summary', aauummm.
Yes, I noticed that. Regardless if you get 15 lbs with Blue Rhino or 20 lbs with a refill, you'll still pay the going rate per pound. The advantage with the refill (vs. exchange) is that you won't have to make as many trips to get your propane.
edit: As pointed out by others, buying propane by the tank from Blue Rhino would be a much higher cost due to local retail sales costs of handling tanks, tank delivery and retail overhead, etc.
Looking for a place that does propane tank fills. I've read multiple stories online that say the Blue Rhino ones you exchange at stores are only filled to 80% of capacity. Screw that. Anyone know of a place??
*edit: Preferably on the west side
I looked up my latest propane purchase for ya. We have to fill up at a filling station for our fixed motorhome tank (18 gal or 76.3 lb). It was last October at Ferrellgas in DM. Price per gallon was $2.80 with a dock hazmat fee of $1. Thus the cost for 7.4 gallons (31.4 lbs) was $20.71 plus the dock fee and taxes came to $22.95. Just to give you an idea of the cost.
At 4.24 lbs propane per gallon, 7.4 gallons of propane would be 31.4 lbs.
