We know it seems like January 87th, but we promise, spring is on its way.
So, make sure your portable propane tanks are ready for all the grilling, camping, and other warm-weather activities it has in store.
First, test for leaks in your tank and connection. Liberally apply a soap and water solution to the tank and connection and slowly open the cylinder valve. If you see bubbles, you have a leak and will need to replace your connection parts or tank.
When you’re not using your propane cylinder, store it upright so it can’t roll. Keep it in a cool area and be sure not to leave it in your hot car for long periods of time. When not in use, store it outside and away from grills and other hot areas.
If you run out of propane, no need to worry. We make small propane cylinder exchange easy. Just bring it into your local Lakes Gas branch location. If you can’t get to a branch, stop by one of our Swap and Go Cabinets at many area gas stations and convenience stores.
Want to keep your propane tank? Just bring it to a Lakes Gas propane dispenser. They're available at many convenience stores and gas stations in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, and South Dakota. They're staffed with trained professionals who will safely refill your propane tank for you.
