This is something we have seldom seen elsewhere. No one wanted to deliver unless it was 100 gallons or more. In winter, pulling up to fill with propane, when needed is not a favorite chore. Original tank haled 38 gallons, factory changed it out and new one holds only 80% of that to suit the EPA.

The 80% capacity is to allow for gas expansion.

Propane delivered to the tank at your home or business is stored in a liquid state under pressure. It expands in the presence of heat, creating pressure that can build in a propane tank when it’s hot. The additional space inside the tank is needed to allow for propane to expand into a vapor.

I'm not located in your region, but contacting the local office of Amerigas or Ferrellgas might be useful. These organizations all do propane delivery to home and business permanent tanks. I can't see much difference between them filling a tank at somebody's home and filling a tank on an RV or a larger tank at an RV site. I could be wrong, but just a thought.

Sorry for bumping the thread, but I want to say that I had a great experience with Amerigas. The situation wasn't similar to one the OP's friends were, but when I needed propane for my RV, I addressed the AmericanGas customer service. They provided excellent service and delivered the propane fast.

In terms of sales and service AmeriGas, where I live, is really one of the best. They have some of the nicest staff and are incredibly responsive to individual needs. They cost a bit more to use, but they also seem the most accommodating. I can purchase propane from other sellers for less, but I usually have to work with their schedule or go to them to get that better price. Sometimes you get what you pay for.
