Cheap Propane Fill-ups/ Top-offs

10 posts in this topic

It's getting to be the time of year where we are all looking to propane to keep us warm out on the ice. I think we all know where to get an exchange done for grilling season, but getting top-offs by the pound for the upcoming weekend and filling up 11 lb and 5 lb tanks for a non-20 lb price seem to throw most places for a loop.

So, where have you had propane luck and at a good price in the metro area? I'll start by suggesting (thanks to Paul Waldowski) the Uhaul in Eagan on the NE corner of Cedar Ave and 13 off of Nichols Rd. Also, Leroy's on the SW corner of 90th St and Lyndale Ave in Bloomington will fill up a tank (not just do exchanges) but they've always charged a 20 lb price. Any others?

The Clark station (formerly Spur) on Cedar and old Shakopee in Bloomington. They will charge by the pound if you ask.

Bald Eagle Bait ( Marathon Gas) just north of White Bear Lake on Hwy. 61 is cheaper than anything I have found. Great place to buy Bait also and maybe get a tip on the fishing. I would also give Blue Ribbon bait in Oakdale a try.

LeRoy's is expensive. I wouldn't go there again.

Vados did mine all of last winter, and they were very reasonable. I also have gone to Lakes Gas off of lyndale in north minneapolis, just south of 42nd street. they have changed things up a bit but are still reasonable in price.

You would think Blue Ribbon Bait in Oakdale would be a good place to fill small tanks. Last year they charged more per pound to fill small tanks with no explanation. I also had the same experience at Mike's LP Gas in Maplewood. Have either changed this year? An East Side source of propane that doesn't take advantage of ice anglers would be nice.

You're not kidding!!! I needed to fill the backup for the Sat turkey frying and went there to get my standard $16.95 fillup after coupon, only to see the price is now $22.95!!! They will also fill a 5 lber up for $12.25 and an 11 lber for $16.52. Next time I'm going to try that welding shop up on 86th East of Nicollet. Bye, Bye, Leroy's!

Conaco on Rum River Drive in princeton was only 8.95 per 20lber up to the end of last season. Now they raised to $12.95 per 20lber. frown.gif

Depends on who is behind counter, but I have had them split a tank price, but not by a pound price.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
