Step 2

Start, Buy, or Exchange Your Tank

Once at your nearest location, simply talk to a sales representative about buying or exchanging your tank. If you’re exchanging, make sure to leave your used tank outside the store when you go in.

Make sure to mention to the attendant whether you are exchanging a tank, buying a tank for the first time, or buying a spare.

 

After talking to the attendant and paying for the cylinder, the attendant will accompany you to our AmeriGas Propane Exchange Kiosk where you will be given a new tank (and exchange your old tank if you have one!)

 

That’s it! Once you have an AmeriGas tank, exchanges are easy and affordable.
