After seeing the many complaints about amerigas, here is another reason to avoid them even for your bar b-q gas. These people have it all figured out and so do professional thieves, I can't use my bar b-q grill when ambient temperature is below 50 degrees, that means the flashpoint of their product is alot higher than normal, that means they are diluting their grilling gas.

if that is the case then they should supply an electric blanket for their cylinders and this is a name to avoid as they have really made a name for themselves. Shame Shame everybody knows their name which isn't worth 2 cents......

Not sure about any of this to be true or fa lol so good or bad propane however the thought of dilluted propane is the reason I googled can you dilute propane or is it unconcieviable??? Not sure if this thread even solves my original ques/query anyhow I'ma gonna test my theory gonna buy a full bottle from the cheapest local distributor 1.69 gal and one from there competitor at 2.69 a gallon and see which goes further if there is one outside of the price diff. I live In a large R/V and it appears the cheaper propane i blow through or it seems i have to refill my 2 -23 gallon tanks far 2 often but before I can comment with any facts whatsoever ever I need some real ammunition I gotta put some boots to some pavement I will post up on my discovery about 1 mon or so give or take so till then happy trail bra!

Wendell, If you open the valve too quick on the propane tank that has he OPD valve in it. It will slam the float shut and won't let the flow come through as it should.

Just close the valve back you may have to bump it to free the float and slowly open the valve on the tank. I noticed when it does this it results in a low flame on the burner and the grill won't come up to temprature.

I forgot to mention that the before mentioned event occured when gas at the pump was near $5.00 per gallon. So it doesn't take much of a leap to believe that propane could have been reformulated at the refinery, in the name of profit.

And Yes I am a former oil company employeee.

Also the price of propane did not flux like the price of gasoline during the same period. Propane has a differant type of market than gasoline.

Can you guys simply recomend a way to overcome the problem? I could reasonably conclude that the gas was diluted, if after 5 years of using the same procedure my gas grill won't produce enough heat to cook.

Then after replacing it I encountered the same problem. Whats up with that?

Hey John, The *** probably don't know if he opens his valve to quickly it will slug the valve in the tank off and he won't get the pressure out of it.Dilluting a product is the stupidist thing I've ever heard. Especially something stored under pressure and boils at such a low temp.

THE COMPANY CANNOT "DILUTE" THE PROPANE ITS SHIPPED FROM THE REFINERY TO THE PLANT AND FINALLY TO YOU IN THE SAME FORM THEY WON'T WASTE THE TIME TO CHANGE OR DILUTE THE GAS ITS NOT WORTH IT. FRENDLYGASMAN IS RIGHT MOST LIKELY THE PROBLEM IS WITH YOUR REGULATOR THAT WOULD BE MY FIRST GUESS AS A SERVICE TECH FOR 15+ YEARS IN THE PROPANE BUSINESS.

i agree with you'refucking retarded, hd5 is the most common grade of propane for use residential applications and the main choice of big companys to sell to *** *** butt *** like yourself. fyi ***, propane shrinks when its cold and putting an electric blanket on it would cause possible failing of the PRD (pressure relief device for you 'tards out there).

Hey propane god, since it seems that you have to use ******* so much I'm probably wasting my time replying to you. but you might check out PowerBlanket for propane tanks it's a heat wrap made for the tanks.

Maybe you should use your brain to check thinks out instead of just watching ***. Maybe a little respect to others might help also.

There are 164 known gases that are produced in the refining of crude oil. Amerigas ppx and Ferrelgas Blue Rhino buy the cheapest gas possible.

(In the USA gas can be called propane even if there is no propane in it.) These gases would normally be flared off, they contain known cancer causing olefins.

Olefins are being cooked into your food and are worse than PCB's. Exxon Mobil and others believe that they have passed the liability off to the MLP's like Amerigas and Ferrelgas.

Although YFR is correct he/she does prove how intelligent they are in their use of language. "Friendly" is also right about the regulator but both leave out the fact that a twenty pound gas grill cylinder holds approx.

4.6 gals of fuel.

To make more money per cylinder they fill them with only 3.5 gals. which makes far less than 20 pounds of fuel.

Amerigas, just like every other propane company in the United States, sells HD5 propane. Just like the gasoline you put in your car, propane has to pass tests for quality and safety before it can be certified as a certain grade. Holy fu cking sh it you're ***.
