propane tank refill Johnson City, tn There’s nothing more disappointing than marinating some chicken, prepping some ribs, or just opening a pack of hot dogs and discovering that your propane grill tank is empty. Don’t let an empty tank ruin your grilling plans. Swapping out an empty propane cylinder for a full one is easy, as long as you have a spare on hand. Admiral makes it easy to refill or exchange your tank so you can keep on grilling.

Not sure you know how to replace your grill tank? It’s as easy as 1-2-3.

  1. Make sure your grill is off, and the tank valve is closed (turn it all the way to the right, until it’s tight).
  2. Unscrew the grill pressure regulator by turning it to the left.
  3. Some grill models also have a restraining bolt. Just loosen it and remove the tank.

To reconnect a full tank, simply follow those steps in reverse. Be sure the tank valve is closed when you reconnect the pressure regulator.

Need a Refill? We’ve got Your Back

Admiral makes refilling or exchanging your cylinder is a snap. Bring your empty tank to our convenient Blountville and Greeneville locations for a quick propane tank refill, or exchange your tank at multiple other locations across the Tri-Cities area.

Here’s how to handle propane cylinders safely:

  • Don’t bring empty tanks inside.
  • All cylinders must be transported in an upright position after they are filled. Cylinders should not be transported lying down.
  • Do not leave a filled tank inside your car for any length of time, especially in the summer.
  • And remember, we can’t refill tanks with excessive rust, corrosion or other damage.

Refill or Exchange—what’s the Difference?

What’s the difference between refilling or exchanging your portable propane grill tank? Some people appreciate the swap-and-go convenience of a cylinder exchange. But savvy customers love the ease and the savings they get by refilling. When you own your propane grill tank and refill it, you can save money in a few ways.

First, you’ll save on the price of the propane. The difference can be up to $1.75 per gallon!

You also save because you’ll pay only for the propane you use. When you choose to refill your propane tank, you’re only buying the propane to fill the rest of your cylinder.

With propane grill tank exchange, you’re charged for all the propane in the cylinder—including the propane left in the tank when you take it to be exchanged. Because think about it: When you see your propane cylinder is starting to run low, your instinct is to take it in to exchange before you run out. So unless you run them until they’re completely empty, you could be wasting half a tank or more over the span of a few tanks.
