Propane question???

13 posts in this topic

I recently discovered that I still have one tank with the "old" valve on it. Is it still possible to exchange the old ones, or have them re-fitted? Or should I just get rid of it?

Thanks.

Menards will exchange it. Its a few bucks more than an OPD exchange but at least you get the upgrade.

I don't think anyone actually gives any credit for them, I think they will just take them off your hands. As far as getting them retrofitted, you can buy a brand new 20lb for the same price. So unless you have some sort of attachment to the tank, send it down the road.

$16.99 exchange at Marnards, can not beat that, just a new style tank will run $25 you get a new tank and full of gas. I did it 2 times.

You did that with an old tank? Is that their policy, or are they just stupid.

Walmart and fleet farm do like wise. $16.99 exchange upgrade. I think the $3.00 rebate offer is still on for the Blue Rino at the above places.

Last time I exchanged at Menards, the teller asked me if it was an OPD tank or a non-OPD (old style valve) tank. They ring them up differently. The non-OPD exchange is about $3 more than an OPD exchange.

Are they stupid? Probably not. I'm sure there is a very good reason they still do this.

Exchanged 2 at Home Depot last summer. I think that it only cost me about $10.00ea.

they will take the old style and give you a new style? well that just bites. when they changed over they wouldn't take them so I got rid of them.Now I wish I would have hung on to them.

Don't feel too bad they didn't go to waste. People like me picked them up and took care of it. grin.gifgrin.gif

go to fleet farm or wally world, it's only like $12 to EXCHANGE a 20 lb tank that's not exchanging for the new valve though.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
