Propane leak?

1 post in this topic

Was out passing by my 500 gal tank last night thought I'd check it to see where the needle was. I knelt down and couild instantly smell gas, and the needle was at 0.

I only need propane for cooking in the summer.

On a normal year I fill once. and its always been in august, so im suprized that here in June its empty and leaking.

We call the propane Co. to fill but to come out to fill us today they want an additional $100 over the cost of the gas bcuz of a "special trip" we're only 8 mi from town and see their trucks regularily. so no to the fill, but have them send out someone to inspect "thier tank" for leaks. they come out and in the end say to my daughter, "there isnt a leak! but the reason why you smell gas is because ITS EMPTY"

Time for a new Propane Co??

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
