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.

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.

        My buddy and his dad dropped there front end of there pickup in on lake bemidji Saturday luckley they were able to get out with out harm. After all the rain and warm temps hopefully people learn now to stop driving. If you do go out walk not worth the risk. I'm looking at the forcast and after tonight the lows for nights are in the teens so hopefully things may heal up and I can get out a few more times. It's the middle of February I'm not going to be putting things away yet feels like I just got things out!

      We had to ride snowmobiles 30 miles out of the Canadian bush Monday and it was a mess. Filled our Otters with water even with covers strapped on.

      From what I am seeing on the Arnesen webcam, there is not much snow left.  Sleds would need scratchers.  Wheelers maybe a better option until we get more snow and there is none in the forecast.

      Coming up Thursday morning and planning on making the run to the reefs/islands via snowmobile.  Is there any loose snow left on the trail to keep the sleds cool, or would a 4 wheeler be necessary?  Any information from locals there would be very much appreciated.  Thx.
