Propane Refils

12 posts in this topic

Hi Folks;

I want to go to a sunflower type heater this year, I have a smaller portable so I want to use the 5 or 11 pound tanks, a 20 takes up to much room. My question is where in St Paul
can a guy get refills? All the exchange places only carry 20 pound tanks.

Thanks!

I'm not from St. Paul, but I would guess that the phone book will be full of places that will fill your tank. Try the yellow pages and find the one that's closest to you.

Toll Gas & Welding on the corner of Cleveland and C in Roseville fills all sizes of propane tanks.

Labrat, I'm from North St. Paul and I get my tanks refilled at Mike's LP. It's located at: Mike's Lp Gas & Rv Svc
1350 Frost Ave, Maplewood, MN 55109
Phone: (651) 770-9448
It's about 1/2 mile east of Lake Phalen and West of White Bear Ave.

Say why don't you go and buy a 100lb cylinder which you can lease I know for sure for 5 bucks a year, then goto the local hardware store and get the adapter so you can refill it yourself. The only drawback to the whole deal is you can only fill them to about 75 percent but who cares you'll save a few lbs that way anyways''''

The Tracy One-Stop on Hamline, 1 block south of 94 has a propane refill service, and it is generally good service.

Thanks CO, FP did that number on the Qwestdex search engine and they only came up with the U-Haul place on University and I'm pretty sure they are an exchange place also.

I'll check out that Tracy one stop.

Thanks Again!

There is a Cenex 2 blocks north of 494 on Concord - by the stock yards, in South St. Paul. Also an Amoco station 1 block S of 494 on Valley Creek in Woodbury.

    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
