Tenino's Propane Supply FAQs

The short answer is sometimes yes, and sometimes no. We base our pricing on our wholesale cost. Sometimes it’s cheaper in the summer, sometimes it’s not. It just depends on what’s going on in the world and local markets. Some companies will artificially lower their prices in order to “trick” people into thinking they are a bargain, only to raise it dramatically in the winter. Again, we simply add our margin to our cost and do not play unfair pricing games.

This is by far the most commonly asked question, and by far the most difficult to answer. There are so many factors involved. Mainly the weather, your households habits, the efficiency of your home and equipment, the size of your house, what appliances you have, etc. Literally, you could take 10 identical homes with 10 different families, and while their rate of consumption may go up and down together based on the weather, their individual family consumption will be different due to different habits.

This explanation will help you to figure out a baseline of your consumption.

1 gallon of propane has approximately 92,500 Btu’s (British Thermal Unit – a measure of energy content) in it. You can calculate how much your appliances will burn by knowing the Btu’s of the appliance and the Btu’s of propane. For instance, if your gas fireplace is 30,000 Btu’s, you will burn approximately 1 gallon for every 3 hours it runs (92,500 divided by 30,000).

Average Btu’s of different appliances and the average annual consumption for a family of four;

  • Furnace – 36,000 – 150,000 Btu’s; Average annual consumption based on “average winter weather” 300-1200 gallons
  • Water Heater (standard) – 30,000-50,000 Btu’s; Average annual consumption – 300 gallons
  • Water Heater (on demand) – 100,000-200,000; Average annual consumption – 200 gallons
  • Clothes Dryer – 20,000 – 25,000 Btu’s; Average annual consumption – 60 gallons
  • Stovetop – 60,000 (15,000/burner); Avg annual consumption – 25 gallons
  • BBQ – 30,000 – 36,000; 10 gallons
  1. The short answer is yes, propane can technically freeze at -306.4 degrees Fahrenheit (or -188 degrees Celsius). But what is more likely to happen than your propane tank freezing is that your propane can no longer vaporize. When the temperature gets below -44 degrees Fahrenheit (-42.2222 degrees Celsius) the propane will no longer boil. You can fix it by getting a propane tank heater. But, as the average lowest temperatures in Tenino rarely get lower than 35 degrees Fahrenheit, it’s safe to say this will not be an issue. Alternatively, in hot weather conditions, you should simply not leave your propane in direct sunlight as the hotter the tank gets, the more pressure there will be inside the tank.
Thank you, Acme, for checking our propane level during this cold snap — and for plowing out our drive with your fuel truck! We appreciate the help!

Acme Fuel is the Best. I have been a propane customer for 15 years.Some how they always know when it is time to refill my 120 gal tank I have never had to call for service. One morning as I was waking up it came to me it may be time for a refill when I got up noticed a truck noise and Wow! The Acme Guy was filling the tank. Great Service and I have shared the info with friends.

The driver for ACME just delivered my fuel on 5-15-19. I was outside working in the yard when he arrived, very efficient, nice and friendly. We are set up for automatic deliver; my husband and I have been a customers for 11+ years. I never have to make a call, we have never run out of fuel as they know our usage and always get here to put fuel in our tank. Thank you for many years of service and many more years in the future.

Usually one of the cheapest places in town that ain’t gonna make you drive the extra distance out to Tumwater or through the miserable roundabouts. It’s a 24 hour, self serve, and CARD ONLY sort of place that also has ETHANOL FREE fuel for roughly $0.60 extra (BRING YOUR FUEL JUGS). There aren’t any attendants. The trucks that bring in the fuel are literally parked right beside the pumps.Ohh, and the propane place is ACME just two and a half blocks south southeast.

Acme Fuel's clear & competitive propane pricing promise

Other Tenino companies might try to win you over with “teaser rates”. This is when a company will provide their customers with a quote only to raise their prices later with hidden charges and fees. Even worse, they can artificially raise their prices in the winter when you need your propane and fuel the most, then turn around and lower the prices in the summer when you need your fuel the least. At Acme, we do not believe in playing pricing games with our customers! Our customers can count on our consistent pricing because propane and fuel prices only change when the wholesale price changes.
