what I love about Wi

NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!
These stupid a$$holes want to charge me for not filling my LP tank, which I pay a rental fee every year. WTF!!!!!
I already paid for the fuel in the tank and pay to rent the tank, but now because I haven't ordered a refill since 2009, they think I owe them for "NO USE".

just needed to vent............

btw....the company is Ferrellgas......

CCS race official
sold the track bike
too slow to ride

"Repairs end December 31. 2011."

OK, it was a tough day.....back open again!!!
Bring me your broken down machines.

the fine print on the rental agreement.

you need to own your own tank.

We offer three kinds of service @ Resurrection
GOOD - CHEAP - FAST
You can pick any two
GOOD service CHEAP won't be FAST
GOOD service FAST won't be CHEAP
FAST service CHEAP won't be GOOD
and cold beer.

I'd love to help but I don't chase parts.
Please contact other forum members and supporters for parts.

same goes with welding gases. You can either rent their tanks or pay them money to own one which you exchange anyhow.

Ferrelgas is a bunch of crooks. Find a small local propane provider. I did, and couldn't be happier. Besides the fact there is no stupid contracts (minus tank rental if you don't own one) you call whenever you want and if you order over 200 gallons, there is no extra fees, whats-so-ever. Unlike Ferrelgas, with their hazmat fee, delivery fee, and general assholes fee.

I found a better solution, natural gas line was just run in front of the house. All I have to pay is the connection charge over 75 feet.

youll pay monthly service charges for that too wether you use the gas or not

just trading one fee for another, those connection charges can be pretty steep, also dont forget any thing in the house that uses propane currently will need to be converted to use nat gas or barring that be replaced
(furnace, clothes dryer, hot water heater, stove)
