Proof of ownership: Didn't you get, and keep,
a receipt, when you purchased the tank ?

Yes I did get a receipt, just like I get for just about anything else I buy new. But I don't save receipts for every item I've bought in my life, for my entire life. If I did, I'd have papers piled up past the roof of my house. I've got over a 100 tractors here and I bet I don't have a receipt laying around for any of them.

When I go hunting - even though many of my guns were bought new - I am sure I would not be able to find a "receipt" for any of them.

In regard to the tank - I bought from a guy I've known for years and he was my gas-delivery guy. I bought the tank four years ago and at that time - never imagined I'd be asked someday to show "proof of ownership." Other then that - I can't imagine any reason for keeping the d*mn paperwork. It's not like it's got a warrrantee. It IS on my property and has nobody's company name on it.

Same here only receipts I keep are for tax reasons.
This lady comes home house is empty ( Bank Mistake )
and they want receipts, crazy they made mistake. Maybe she forgot about the 50 K in cash. Her request seemed fair to me.Then you have autopart store receipts that writing disappears in 20 minutes

I bought an old used 125 gal tank from a farmer who had it on a combine. He wrote me out a receipt from one of those generic receipt books. Supplier didn't seem to care as long as I had a receipt.

Go get a friend to write you out one if you ever need one.

I wouldn't waste any time with a company that behaves like Amerigas did. The tank is on MY property and has nobody's company name on it. I told them I owned it and they said "prove it." In other words - they called me a liar until proved otherwise. They can kiss my a*s, along with any others like them. I found two other local small companies that had no problem with my tank.

By the way. I put in a propane tank at my cabin in Indian Lake, Adirondacks, NY (Hamilton Co.) I called up J & R Eldredge from Lake Pleasant. They went over and filled it with no money up front, no proof of ownership, no anything. Just my name, mail address and phone #. I was amazed. These people do not know me and I don't live in that area. That's what I call a good old fashioned business. They later sent a bill, we paid, and that was that. I wish there were more gas companies around like that. Amerigas acted like they'd be doing me a HUGE favor by permitting me to be their lowly and obedient customer.

I have several suppliers in my area.

Two of them are good so far. I have been alternating my fill ups between them trying to stay on good terms with them both and to support them. Never know when an emergancy will crop up.

Amerigas and Ferrell gas are some others around here but DO NOT DEAL with them as you know.

There is another place out of my delivery zone in Amish country. Troyer's he is VERY good to deal with on the pipeing and regulators and keeps them on hand. Many places won't sell you any parts for LP systems around here. They are trying to cover their rears in case someone blows theirselves up.
