I Ran Out Of Propane! What Do I Do?

Automatic Delivery Prevents Propane Run-outs

ran out of fuel maineOne of the things PitStop Fuels customers love about us is our reliable propane delivery.

When you need propane, we’re here for you!

But if you choose Will-Call for your propane delivery, you have some responsibilities when it comes to making sure we get your propane to you.

First, you have to regularly check your propane tank gauge levels. Here’s how you do that:

Go out to your propane tank and look for the round dial on it that looks like a speedometer. The numbers on the dial indicate the percentage of how full your propane tank is. If the needle is on 60, your propane tank is 60% full.

We strongly recommend that Will-Call customers never let their tank fall below 30% full before requesting a propane delivery. This is to make sure that we can make a deliver to your home before you run low on, or worse, run out of propane.

What happens if you forget to check your propane tank gauge levels, or contact us to request a delivery? You could have a propane run-out.

If you run out of propane in the winter, your house may become dangerously cold and there is the risk of frozen and burst pipes.

And that’s just the beginning of the hassle and expense that come with a propane run-out.

Why You Want To Prevent A Propane Run-out

If you run out of propane, call PitStop Fuels immediately for an emergency propane delivery. DO NOT try to email us or contact us through the website. Call us at 207-352-7800. Our phones are answered 24/7!

An emergency propane delivery is only the beginning of what needs to be done when you run out of propane. You are required to have a complete safety inspection of your propane system performed by a professional service technician like the ones at PitStop Fuels.

A safety inspection includes a leak test, a pressure test, an inspection of your propane tank and propane appliances, and a professional re-lighting of all the propane appliance pilots.

While all of this is a hassle, it is also an added expense. You are responsible for paying for the emergency propane delivery as well as the safety inspection.
