Propane Weekend FAQ’s
Q: How many tanks can be filled for $5?
A: GR Mitchell will fill 2 tanks for you as soon as possible upon your arrival, but we will also tag additional tanks with your name for filling at the promotional cost. These will be ready to be picked up by the end of the day. NOTE: State regulation prohibits transporting more than 4 full tanks at a time in an enclosed vehicle.
Q: Is this event cash only?
A: For faster service we recommend having cash, however credit cards will be accepted inside of our retail store. To pay for propane with a card please have your tank inspected first, request a transaction ticket from our team and proceed inside to pay. Please DO NOT BRING YOUR TANK INSIDE OF THE STORE, as it is against the law to do so. We will watch your tank for you if needed while you pay. Once you return you can join the line to fill your tank(s).
Q: What are your business hours for the event?
A: Saturday, May 4th 7:00 am – 5:00 pm & Sunday, May 5th 10:00 am to 3:00 pm
Q: What if my tank is larger than 20 lbs?
A: Unfortunately this event is JUST for 20 lb tanks, however you can still fill up your larger tanks at regular retail price: 30 lb tank = $16.99; 40 lb tank = $21.99
Q: Can I purchase a new tank during propane weekend?
A: Yes, we stock new tanks. Purchase yours during propane weekend for $35 including PA sales tax.
Q: My tank is not brand new, will you still fill it?

Q: What happens if my tank doesn’t pass inspection?
