During the COVID-19 outbreak, we remain open, filling tanks for everyone, and are ready to help if you need us! Depew Energy has implemented social distancing to better protect our customers and has put our BBQ fill service outside, with one employee handling payments with personal protective equipment in full use. Important! Please do not bring the empty cylinder inside our office.

Removing an empty cylinder from your grill

Here’s a step-by-step guide to safely removing and replacing the gas cylinder on your propane grill:

  1. Turn off your grill.
  2. Locate your propane cylinder; it may be behind a door depending on how your grill model is designed.
  3. There are two basic parts of your grill that are important when changing a propane cylinder: the cylinder’s tank valve and the grill’s pressure regulator.
  4. Before you disconnect the pressure regulator, make sure that the tank valve is closed by turning it to the right until tight.
  5. Once the tank valve is closed, unscrew the threaded pressure regulator by turning it counterclockwise. It is now safe to remove the propane cylinder. For some grill models, the tank may be held on by a restraining bolt or screw. Simply loosen it to remove the tank.
  6. To reconnect your propane tank, simply reverse the disconnection process—making sure the tank valve is closed when you reconnect the pressure regulator. Replacement propane cylinders often come with a plastic safety cap over the tank valve assembly. Just remove this and you’re ready to roll!

propane cylinder refill

Transporting portable cylinders

As our customers and neighbors, your safety is paramount to us. That’s why we follow strict safety standards for propane cylinder refills.

We can’t refill cylinders that are damaged or that show signs of corrosion or excessive rust. We will not refill a propane cylinder that is not certified or that does not pass a checklist provided by the Department of Transportation.

  • All cylinders must be transported in an upright position after they are filled.
  • Do not leave a full tank inside your car for any length of time, especially in the summer.
  • Cylinders that have a capacity of 40 pounds or less can be transported in the cab, but only if the total capacity of the cylinders being driven is 90 pounds or less. That means you can carry up to four 20-pound cylinders this way.

Assisting the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley

Depew Energy is proud to have assisted the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley in donating $1 for every BBQ Propane Tank filled or exchanged this summer—for a grand total of $10,000 raised! We appreciate everyone’s generosity in helping to pay it forward to those who need it most in these ever-challenging times.

Since mid-March and the outbreak of COVID-19, the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley has distributed 50% more food than in the same time period last year. That’s enough for more than 2.4 million meals to low-income families, unemployed or underemployed workers, service workers, out-of-school children, home-bound and immunocompromised seniors, shelter residents and others facing food insecurity – some for the first time.

With your help, the Food Bank can continue to provide food to families struggling to make ends meet during this difficult time. For every $1 donated, the Food Bank provides 4 meals to friends and neighbors in need!
