Propane and Cold Weather

5 posts in this topic

Now that we have extremely cold weather here, people are bound to have problems with their heaters and propane tanks. In extremely cold weather, it is important to keep your tanks as full as possible. When the temperature dips, so does the pressure in your tank. When the pressure drops, the liquid won't vaporize. The only way around this is to keep your tanks full so the pressure stays up.

This may be considered an advertisement, but we will work with you to keep your tanks full. Normally we have one charge for a tank fill, but if your tank is 1/2 or 2/3 full, we will work with you on this. I'd rather see your heater work properly and you safe and warm in this cold weather.

thanks for the heads up, I was just debaiting whether to fill them or not. I guess I will. I'm going to use it sooner or later right?

Thanks for the great offer to fill the part full tamks and not charge a full fill to fill a 1/2 full tank.

Guys, this is a very generous offer as very few propane suppliers will do this.

Just an example of how great our Fishing Minnesota sponsors are.

The physics are a little more complex then just keeping your tanks full but the importance of this message is correct.

Harvey is certainly correct when it comes to 5 - 20 lb tanks, everywhere fills at a flat rate, this is an real offer from someone dedicated to their customer.

Another tip for those using 1 lb tanks is do not use wal-marts (Ozark Trail) 1 lb tanks in this cold weather. They have cut something else into that fuel that unnoticeable in the summer but doesnt vaporize the at the same rate in the cold. The result is your heater really starts to stink towards the end of the tank. I put those on the grill and buy elsewhere for hard water fishing.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.

      Yep. I'm on Schultz's Bay. Which side are you on?   Had to head in to Alex today around noon so I took a little side trip to Manthey's Bay because that is typically the first area that has walkable ice. Stood at the 145th Ave access. To the right was all open water, straight out was ice for maybe 30 feet and then open water and that extended to the left into Manthey's Bay for a ways. The rest of the Bay looked frozen over from what I could see from there. Nothing anywhere on the lake looks like it would be walkable yet. Lots of ice on the lake and still making more. The winds have been keeping small pockets of water open scattered through out the ice that has formed so the ice thickness is going to be very inconsistent for a while. The winds have started to die down so with calmer winds I would think the lake might lock up in the next day or two. Just so the snow stays away for Saturday.

      Picked up my first custom rod, a TUCR power noodle, the new black Betty free fall and plenty of tungstens!

      This afternoon I checked Norris lake and it is locked up except for a few small holes in the middle.  Twin lakes on the other hand is wide open. Pic is of Twin lake.
