BBQ Season – Refilling Your Propane Tank

BBQ Season in Fernie - Refilling Your Propane Tank
Rod and I found out recently the only place where you can refill your propane tank is with the two nice men at Fernie Rentals (6 Manitou Rd, beside Day Auto. I think.) The scoop is: the local gas stations were having a hard time keeping their employees trained and certified in mandatory and costly propane school because of short term employment in the area and so they’ve all turned to the propane tank swap-the-old-for-a-new-one program. No certificate required there. Fernie Rentals, on the other hand, doesn’t have the same issue with employee turnover.

In conclusion, the only place (that we could find) in Fernie where you can refill your propane tank is at Fernie Rentals.

In summation, Happy BBQing!
