I just have to say that this whole thing is very bizarre. I've been doing business with Thrifty for the past two years, and have never had a problem. I have always checked the propane delivery against the propane tank gauge, and it has always been on-the-money within about 5 gallons of expected versus reported. My tank gauge is not "sticking". I watched it go down to 10% slowly over the last week before delivery, and it performed as it normally does. And the propane drained at the normal rate. There is just no explanation for this bizarre behavior, and I wouldn't believe it myself if it weren't happening to me. Customer service was especially poor, and I've dealt with all manner of customer service reps.
I recommend taking a picture of your gauge percentage before and after delivery to ensure you are not ripped off. My guess is that the delivery driver is at fault, so different areas may fare better. At any rate, I am out $180 on propane that I was charged for and did not receive. Very irritating.
