Help! My propane tank ran out and I need an exchange or refill on Labour Day.

I have a yellow Superior Propane tank I usually swap out at the Home Hardware on Parliament. (It seems the colour of the label is important to retailers.) Anyone know where I can swap it on Labour Day?

  1. Swaps are not very cost effective. You can refill for $11 to $12 in my area, but a swap would be $20.
    Now that I think of it, any taxi service station will be open on Labor Day. Just call a taxi dispatcher to find out where, and take a cab to the nearest propane fill...

    1. Ouch! Not sure, but I thought most gas stations were pretty open about what they will exchange? Superior is pretty much a monopoly on propane. I also remember that once time we took a tank to some place South on Parliament or Jarvis, can't remember exactly where :(, but they were able to physically refill it.

        There is an independent gas station on Queen East at Lesie north side that refills propane..

          Try north side of Dupont just west of Bathurst.
