Propane filled by the pound???

Recommended Posts

tashit

Is there any where in the West or SW metro (I live in Mound, work in Burnsville) that charges propane fills by the pound? I hate having to pay for a full tank when I'm only getting 3/4, plus the place I go to charges $12 for my 11 lb and $15 for a 20 lb. It's not like it's a ton of money but I just want to be able to pay by the pound. Thanks.

The U-Haul off Lyndale and I think its 84th St in Bloomington. I can fill a 20 gallon tank for around 14 dollars. They charge by the pound and not by the tank.

I know exactly where those places are. Now I just need to remember to throw my tank in my car before I go to work. Thanks guys!

Colony Plaza in Waconia and Waconia Farm Supply I believe will both charge by the pound if you ask. Farm supply is $11.50 for a 20# (if i remember right), Colony $13.

Ohh good question, but anyone know where in the NW burbs. Would have been nice to know earlier in the season when I had to drag a sled by hand and was concerned about weight.

Great thread, great idea. Kind of like twincitiesgasprices....

Any suggestions for NE metro? Heck, if you have a place anywhere in the metro pass it along for people who are all over the compass.

Just thought I would note that Northern Tool no longer sells propane. I got it at the Uhaul at cty 5 and hwy 13 in B-ville. My 11 pounder was almost empty and it was only like $8.50 or something. I would imagine that all uhauls charge by the pound/gallon instead of per tank???

Leroys??? I have had refills done there and there has never been anyone working there who has suggested that. It's always been a fillup for 16.95, less a 2 dollar coupon if you have one. Next time I'm there I guess I'll ask.

McGurk,

Now that you mention it maybe you're right. I was once told they do by the pound, but when I went there I had an empty tank and just filled the whole thing, without asking. Let us know if you ask next time. Again, my bad.

I have been filling at Sipes in Golden Valley. They charge $16 and every fourth one is free. So it comes to $12 a piece which is decent.

Leroy's in Bloomington is one of the most expensive stores I've filled up at. Its convenient as its close to home but annoying to pay too much.

      Dang, pulled the battery and put her in storage just last week or that sounds like fun. With all this wet weather it has really put me behind on getting all the fall chores done before hunting season and the winter hits and I need get the sled and ice stuff ready.  I had breakfast at Our Place just this morning coming down from Ely and was thinking of all the rides I have done in that area the last few years.  Lets try to set up a ride-trout outing next spring. 🙂

      Fishing Friday and Saturday was a dramatic shift. Seems the west wind got them going. Found a reef on Friday that was loaded up with fish and they were hungry. Fished it for a few hours before losing the battle to the cold. 3 pig smallies up top in 18-20 feet, 3 keeper walleyes between 16-18" and one 25" on the sides of the reef to the transition in 24-30 feet, and 2 jumbos off the transition in the mud at 32 feet. Also lost a BIG fish--the kind that your heart sinks when it comes off the line.    Saturday was more of the same. Biting a little lighter but we managed 6 walleyes from 15-19" in between the rain and getting blown off the lake. Could've easily limited if not for some "miscues"   Did try a little bit of trolling close to dark but only picked up a small muskie. Lots of guys out trolling all weekend but I'm not sure if they were going for walleyes or muskies. Interested to know if anyone on here was one of those guys and will give a report.    Wish I was starting my trip now instead of sitting at home. I think this is going to be a phenomenal week of fishing now that the weather is going to stabilize and warm up. Best of luck to everyone the rest of the year and stay safe. Saw some of the biggest waves I've seen on vermilion with the wind last week. Can get hairy pretty quickly out there

      We saw some late birds today also in west central MN.  The beans looked horrible and most corn was still in.  In 2 hours of driving I only saw three corn fields being combined each way.   We saw birds and got some roosters.  About 30% mature to 70% juveniles, not counting those late birds that didn’t fly well.  Birds seemed really jumpy today - odd for opener.  Flushing wild like late season.   Man, my pheasant legs ain’t what they used ta be! 😨

      I was wondering if raps at 2 mph would work now. Will the fish still chase them down when the water temps are in the low 40s?

      Thanks for the water temps. Unfortunately my depth finder temp gauge was correct.
