GET CAUGHT OUT OF GAS!
You've learned to keep a close eye on your car's gas gauge. Running
out of gasoline is not just an inconvenience, it could place you
and your loved ones at risk. You watch the gauge and fill your tank
to avoid being stranded. What you might not know is that you should
also watch the gauge on your propane tank at home.
Did you know?
The State of Oklahoma has adopted the National Fire Protection Association's
requirements regarding out-of-gas situations. These regulations
require anyone delivering propane to an out-of-gas customer or new
customer to perform a complete system check. This leak or safety
check includes an inspection of all lines, appliances, regulators
and control valves. A thorough safety check can take as long as
an hour to complete and most dealers will charge an additional fee
for this service. It may be inconvenient, but the propane customer
is required to be home at the time of the inspection.
Why is this inspection necessary on out-of-gas calls?
Propane is an extremely safe energy source when used properly. These
strict out-of-gas regulations were enacted by The State of Oklahoma
and NFPA to protect your family and property. Convenience, comfort,
cost and safety
these are four good reasons to avoid out-of-gas
We're here to help.
Your propane dealer wants to make sure that you always have all
the heat you need and plenty of hot water. That means making sure
that you never run out of propane. You can avoid the inconvenience
and cost of an out-of-gas call. Tips for reading the gauge on your
propane tank have been included on this page. Just remember
to call your propane dealer and have your tank filled before it
reaches the one-quarter level. Or better yet, ask your dealer to
place your account on an automatic fill basis. That way, your dealer
will make sure your propane tank is filled year-round.
