    As a propane marketer with a motor and mobile fueling station, this video serves well to remind the public to treat cylinders with care, especially the 100 lb cylinder shown in the video. Many customers want to lay these down in the bed of a pickup after refilling which is very hazardous with liquid propane against the relief valve. Transport vapor service cylinders vertically and don't shoot at them!

    Don't assume that the locations listed in the DOE site will actually sell propane to the public.
    The DOE list shows a key-card station at a Suburban Propane, but when I called to ask about it, I learned that it is not open to the public. However, I have used U-Haul for the fuel, and they are open seven days a week for 12 hours (shorter on Sunday).
    I just bought a 2008 Roush F150 in Texas and had it shipped to Maine after checking to make sure I could get propane nearby. You can't beat the truck for towing capacity or power, although the mileage does drop some. Lower price for propane evens that out.
