How much does it roughly cost to fill a 100 lber + a couple other ???

Recommended Posts

Just curious if anyone has filled one lately and if so how much did you pay this year? I have been contemplating on going with a 100lber for less refilling reasons throughout the season, if you fill a 100 lber vs say a 20,40lber is it cheaper per pound then?

Really??? Thats pretty reasonable Last year I believe I was paying 25 bucks to get my 40 filled. Seems high to me on my end, where do you have yours filled at?

I agree I pay just a bit less that 81 cents @ pound. But I buy from a guy that only sells propane and propane appliances.. And he is not Hank Hill LOL

I have a wood stove in my fish house... It cost me $3.17 in gas for the chainsaw and 3 hours of work, logging, splitting and stacking to heat my fish house for the entire winter season.

This is in Brookings, SD. I filled a 100# tank for work two weeks ago for 50 bucks at our local coop. That didn't include tax as a work for the city.

locally up here, propane is 1.49 a gal and it looks like it might go lower, so at 1.49 per gal and 4.25# per gal equals about .35cents per pound.

Called MidCountry Co-op in Cologne the other day, here were their prices..

20# $16.95

30# $21.95

40# $21.95

100# $54.95

Waconia Farm Supply was quite a bit higher. I cant remember the exact prices, but I think when I filled up a couple tanks, the 20# was $18.95 and 30# was $24.95.

In 1999 built my fish wheeled house with a wood burning stove. In 2000 yanked it out and put in an Empire furnace, stove with oven, and two propane lights. Best grand I've ever spent. Less time dealing with starting a fire and more time to fish.

Propane has been comming down with the price of gas and diesel lately. I know several people who heat there homes with LP who pre-bought this Summer and now the price is quite a bit lower.

My buddy and I debated that for a long time... And then went wood...

The final selling point was that once the stove paid for itself (Which it has) I'm basically heating for free... I mean I cut down 1 tree, and then scrap wood from my wood shop and it heats us for an entire winter...

My other friend who has a propane heater went through 250 pounds of propane last winter, to the tune of about $230...

That's an extra $230 going to help buy an H20... Or $230 going into a college fund... Or an extra truck payment.

As for time spent starting a stove, and loading wood... In grand total... It's not much different than the time lost when that low tank peters out on pressure when it's 2:00 am and -20 outside. Or that regulator buys the farm for some reason.

    • Here are some pictures from this years trip!
    • How do you keep ants off your feeders, especially hummingbird and oriole feeders? I've tried Toro and Raid sprays on the post but it seeks the birds don't like that smell either and i don't see many for a while. Has anyone else experienced that? Any good ideas?
    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
