With cold weather imminent, I decided yesterday to get some propane bottles filled. Standard, 25 lb bottles. I took them down to the local feed-and-seed Filling four bottles cost me $91 and change. Last year, it was $56 and change.
This morning I was at Wally-World and passed through the camping section to pick up some small 1 lb bottles. $9.87 for a two-pack.
I can see that heating the shop is going to be expensive this winter, and I'll have to pick up one of those adapters to refill the small bottles. Belle likes a small Mr. Heater down by her feet when we're in the shop. It runs on 1 lb bottles, and I may have to get an adapter to run it off one of the big bottles. But, I hear from others that the Mr. Heater really doesn't like to run off the big bottles. Something about the hose degrading and getting trash in the heater that clogs up the works.
