Propane question???

Question

climbmda

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.

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.
