AmeriGas filling station locations provide safety and convenience when you want to refill your empty cylinder. The trained staff at every location dispensing AmeriGas propane can help you with purging and filling your propane cylinder.
Your safety is our #1 concern, so please be aware of the following requirements to fill a cylinder:
- An Overfill Prevention Device (OPD) is required on all vertical cylinders between 4 lbs. and 40 lbs., if the state where you are filling the cylinder has passed a law requiring an OPD. An OPD is currently required in most states. An OPD is a specially designed float device that prevents accidental overfilling, which can cause undesirable gas venting. An OPD valve also stops the flow of gas when a cylinder is not connected. For more information, please visit the National Fire Protection Association Regulations homepage at nfpa.org.
- Cylinders must bear a manufacture date within 12 years of the date present, or bear a new date followed by the letter "E." This date means that the cylinder is qualified for an additional five years.
- Cylinders must be equipped with collar and foot ring that are in good condition.
