I went to the local Shell station at Northside and I-35 to get a propane exchange a few weeks ago. I had a blue rhino tank but all they had were Amerigas tanks.
I needed the propane to grill so I exchanged for a filled Amerigas tank. When I placed it on my grill the tank leaked badly. I finally figured out it was the little rubber gasket in the tank nozzle. It was cracked and old.
I took the full tank back to Shell for a new one and of the 3 Amerigas tanks they had left all three of them had worn or cracked gaskets. The photo attached is the best gasket I could find in the group. Come on Amerigas. Replace the 10 cent rubber gasket each time you refill a tank.
You lost me as a customer- I'll stick with blue rhino from now on. At the Shell station even the attendant was surprised how the empty blue rhino tank gaskets looked brand new and the Amerigas empty and full tanks looked like the photo attached or much worse.
Product or Service Mentioned: Amerigas Gas Tank.
Reason of review: Bad quality.
Monetary Loss: $20.
Preferred solution: I want a new gasket in my exchaged tank and a promise from Amerigas they will replace these gaskets each time they refill a tank.
Amerigas Pros: Convenience of buying propane close to home.
Amerigas Cons: Dont change out the gaskets each time they refill a tank.
