Find Out How Pico Propane Can Help You Keep It Full

Living someplace where you can fire up the grill year-round is one of the pleasures of South Florida living. Don’t let an empty tank ruin your grilling plans. Pico Propane offers convenient portable propane cylinder refills and exchanges for an easy summer of grilling and chilling.

Need to replace or refill the portable tank for your grill? It’s as easy as 1-2-3.

  1. Make sure your grill is off, and the tank valve is closed (turn it all the way to the right, until it’s tight.)
  2. Unscrew the grill pressure regulator by turning it to the left.
  3. Some grill models also have a restraining bolt. Just loosen it and remove the tank.

To reconnect, simply follow those steps in reverse. Be sure the tank valve is closed when you reconnect the pressure regulator.

Refill or Exchange—what’s the Difference?

What’s the difference between refilling or exchanging your portable propane grill tank? Some people appreciate the swap-and-go convenience of a cylinder exchange. But savvy customers love the ease and the savings they get by refilling. When you own your propane grill tank and refill it, you can save money in a few ways.

First, you’ll save on the price of the propane. The difference can be up to $1.75 per gallon!

You also save because you’ll pay only for the propane you use. When you choose to refill your propane tank, you’re only buying the propane to fill the rest of your cylinder.

With propane grill tank exchange, you’re charged for all the propane in the cylinder—including the propane left in the tank when you take it to be exchanged. Because think about it: When you see your propane cylinder is starting to run low, your instinct is to take it in to exchange before you run out. So unless you run them until they’re completely empty, you could be wasting half a tank or more over the span of a few tanks.
