What Happens If I Run Out Of Propane?

Avoid This Hassle With Automatic Delivery!

When you use Will-Call for your propane delivery, you have some work to do.

The most important task is regularly checking your propane tank gauge levels so you know how much propane you have. Here’s a reminder on how to do that:

Go out to your propane tank and look for the round dial on it that looks like a speedometer. The numbers on the dial indicate the percentage of how full your propane tank is. If the needle is on 40, your propane tank is 40% full.

We strongly urge Will-Call customers to not let their propane tank gauge levels fall below 30% before requesting a propane delivery. That makes sure that there’s enough time to schedule a delivery to your home before you run low.

Forgetting to check your propane supply puts you at risk of a propane runout. You’ll have no propane to keep your home warm, heat your water, or cook your food. And your problems don’t end there.

Propane Runout Hassles

If you run out of propane, the first thing you do is call Boehlke Bottled Gas at 262-228-6294. Our phones are answered all times of the day or night. DO NOT email us or contact us online.

Our customers get 24/7 emergency propane delivery service. We’ll be out there promptly to refill your propane tank.

But once your propane tank is refilled, you can’t just turn all your propane appliances back on. A complete safety inspection of your propane system performed by a professional service technician is required. That safety inspection includes a leak test, a pressure test, an inspection of your propane tank and propane appliances, and a professional re-lighting of all the propane appliance pilots.
The costs of the emergency delivery and the safety inspection are your responsibility.
