They also aren't open but during normal business hours and only until noon on Saturday. So at the end of the day if I'd need to fill up or if I would need to fill up on the weekend, I would be pretty much screwed.

I can fill up at gas stations at 6 in the morning or at 9 at night any day of the week.
If you can get set up with the right company I'm giving my contractor anywhere between 6 to 18 and cage so they can store at home it depends on their needs so they can come see me once a week or two and the bottles are being lent out for free the 1500 conversion cost free so they can save money this year

We got two propane equipped units this winter and the locked price is $1.99 per gallon. The tanks run about $400 and the dealer has propane. We are going to get a supply tank at our shop to refill our tanks. They think the price of propane will hold its price, guess we'll see. We will convert our diesel trucks to propane if gas does go out of wack.
