Yelm's Propane Supply FAQs

  1. The short answer is technically yes but it is very unlikely. Propane itself freezes at -306.4 degrees Fahrenheit (or -188 degrees Celsius) so that is not a problem. What is more likely to happen is that your propane can no longer vaporize. When the temperature gets below -44 degrees Fahrenheit (-42 degrees Celsius) the propane will no longer boil. You can fix it by getting a propane tank heater. However, the lowest average temperature in Yelm, Washington rarely goes beneath 23 degrees Fahrenheit so you likely will not have to worry about extreme cold. 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.

Cleanliness is an important oil heat improvement. Todays’ oil heat is 95 percent cleaner than it was in 1970. When properly adjusted and maintained, new oil heat systems create absolutely no soot, dirt, or odors in the home. Heating oil delivered by Acme Fuel is an Ultra-Low Sulfur (15 ppm) product. This reduces the sulfur emissions as much as 99 percent from traditional heating oil. This cleaner burning fuel gives us all a chance to breathe easier.

We use a few methods. Most customers are on a degree day schedule. Degree days are a measure of how cold the weather is. Our computer computes your K factor, which is like miles per gallon on a car; it is the rate at which you burn fuel for heat, which is correlated to the weather. Then we determine whether or not you have non-heat related appliances like water heaters, and we build in a gallon/day formula for that. The computer system takes all these factors and generates a ticket accordingly. We try to make a delivery when your tank is 2/3 empty. While this may sound confusing, and is by no means perfect, it has been around for a very long time and is quite accurate.

The other method is called a Julian method; with this method, we deliver to you every certain number of days. This works well if you have a large mix of non-heat related appliances, or a swimming pool heater. More information can be found by Googling degree day schedules.

We ran out of propane in our RV while at Summit Lake and at the time it wasn’t possible to break camp and drive into town. Mike was very helpful, despite my giving them such short notice, he got me set up for next day delivery service and was very helpful. Thanks Acme!

Fast fuel is only as fast as you are..You see I go for my girl and she likes her juice without fillers. So being from Germany she really runs best without all those extra additives, like ethanol. This station is clean well stocked and easy in and out. Very rarely ever do you have to wait to get a fill up. So pump it like I do..

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.

I am both a Fast Fuel gas station customer and a delivery propane customer. Their stations are clean and functional, and their customer service is great. An actual, friendly human answers the phone when you call, and e-mails are promptly addressed as well. When I needed more propane during the February Snowpocalypse event, they made sure to deliver before I was out.

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.

Yelm's Favorite Propane Supplier Since 1925

Acme Fuel is a 3rd generation family owned business based out of the Sound South region of Washington State. We are big believers in supporting local businesses seeing as we are one ourselves! Being local, all our tax dollars stay local too. This way, we can keep fueling not only our customers in Yelm, but also our local economy. Our biggest goal at Acme is to give everyone we work for an unmatched customer service experience. Discover more about why buying local is important at Sustainable Connections and Entrepreneur.com.

Acme Fuel's clear & competitive propane pricing promise

Other companies may try to sell you “teaser rates”. Teaser rates are when they offer their “set” price only to later raise it with surprise charges and fees. Even worse, they artificially lower their rates during the summer months when you need propane the least then immediately raise them again in the winter when you need your propane the most. Acme does NOT believe in dishonest pricing. Our prices only change when our wholesale prices change. Take a look at our current heating oil and propane prices, you won’t be disappointed.

Automatic propane delivery commitment

If you are one of our many loyal customers who subscribe to our propane auto-delivery service, then you know that we do our best to ensure that you never run out of fuel.

FREE propane delivery in Thurston County

Here at Acme Fuel, we do not believe in adding arbitrary fees to our deliveries. The surprise fees given by other companies is only a way to raise their price after they have already quoted you. But Acme only charges for the price of the fuel and the sales tax because we believe that you should only pay for what you are getting! This way our customers can always count on our consistent prices.

Annual propane budget plans
