This is my experience as well. Dedicated propane distributors are generally the least expensive, U-Haul the most expensive (by far), and Flying J somewhere in-between.

Are there any RV dealers in your area? They may have propane or can tell you where to go. Most dealers are going to fill the tanks before a sale. How about a campground near. When you give this some thought you will be traveling to somewhere and need to stop for fuel, I usually just top off my tank when we are on the road at a truck stop.

I used to take my 5er tanks to the local gas stations. The stations I usually took them to got ~7 gallons in an empty tank. Twice, I took them to another station and he got 9 gallons in them. Is this possible or was his meter wrong?

Call AmeriGas on Rt. 40 (410) 465-0800). They are west of Rt. 29. They should be able to take your motorhome or at least point you in the right direction.

Trying to locate a company/business who delivers propane, to come fill my 50 gallon tank in my motorhome which is set up at the Midland RV Ranch in Midland Texas. I have contacted two dealers already and they will only deliver 100 gallons or more. Didnt have any problems getting someone when I was in south Texas! Any help is appreciated!!

Dswan, ask at the Midland RV Ranch office they will know. If they don't, go to another RV park that is professional.

Ok, you have a motor home. This does somewhat limit you since you can not remove the tank.

Many campgrounds (Private that is) have Propane. they also tend to price it "Captive audiance" level (high).

Depending on your state some Gas Stations, and/or Hardware stores, may have it, Tractor Supply Centers may have it (THey are in part hardware stores).

Many RV Dealers can top off your tank.

GOOGLE: Propane {zip Code} and look for the kind of propane place that shows big bulk delivery tankers (A wholesaler) Most of them can do it.

IN selected cities I can give you locations.. Flint, MI area, Parker's propane.

Tekonsha, MI.. Carmichales (I even know how to get there)

Seneca, SC the hardware across from the Wall*mart or the TSC just west of it.

Farther North in Michigan there are Citgo stations with Propane

Farther south it is mixed, but General RV has propane.

West of the river I'm not so good (Mississippi)
Home is where I park it!

When we had our HR, our home delivery service used to top off our propane. We would just leave him a note on our home tank. Now that we have the Monaco they can't do it. Something about not having the right adapter. Bummer because it was so convient for them to do it in the drive way.
