Does anyone know where you can return propane tanks to recoup what I assumed was a deposit fee. When you get a tank of gas from Lowes or someplace that carries Blue Rhino bottled propane, without an exhange you pay $25.00 more. I was of the opinion that you could simply return them to get your money back. That's not the case. Does anyone know where you can return these things and get some money out of them??? Thanks!

I called a dealer, no return for cash deposit.
They suggest you sell the emptys to some one.

I came here because I have two tanks I want to return. We are military we are moving. The movers won't take it and we don't have room to take them. Is there a place to exchange them or are we stuck giving them to neighbors?

You exchange them for full ones not your money back.

The Rhinos were basically intended to be an easy way of exchange without the difficulty of finding a refill station. Basic assumption is that you bring your empty (a tank you already own) and trade for their full tank then begin a simple process of exchange.
If you have two that your trying to rid yourself of, your best bet is craigslist or trading journal, or yard sale.

Contact blue rhino and tell them you are moving. If you turn in your tanks into a shop. Then end up buying new tanks after your move. Finally, send the receipts for your purchase to Blue Rhino and they will send you certificates for free refueling.

Blue rhino will refund core by credit with a copy of your turn in receipt and orders. No money is refunded, just a credit towards next purchase.

Sad to hear this I bought one and decided I do not want to do the exchange. I find it's much easier to do Co-op fill and I know my tank will be full. One has no idea if the tank is full? if the tank was nearly full when brought in? So now I am stuck with a Rhino tank oh well live and learn

all you have to do is weigh it and know how heavy and empty tank is that's how you know how much propane you got its a liquid in the tank and is sold by weight so yea you can tell how much your getting if you really wanna know its that easy like a lot of stuff people just gotta learn to use their head
