Amerigas Only Puts 15 Pounds Of Propane In A 20 Pound Tank! False and deceptive trade practice Bel Air Maryland
*General Comment: FYI
*Consumer Comment: sorry
*Consumer Comment: I worked for a propane company
*Consumer Comment: Ripoff?
*Consumer Comment: math aside
Propane weighs about 4.2 pounds per US gallon, at 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Propane expands 1.5% per 10 degrees F.
At 25 degrees celcius 4.6 pounds of propane SHOULE net out to 18.906 pounds meaning Amerigas tank exchange program is shorting the total capacity of the tank by almost 4 gallons or just about 21%.
Home depot pricing on the exchange is $17.49 or very similar to what I paid at B.J.'s this morning with one major difference. At B.J.'s I recieved 4.6 gallons while at the Amerigas kiosk I would have only recieved 10.9 gallons for the same price.
