Owning a propane tank essentially gives you the power to carry fire, just as owning a falcon lets you harness the power of terrified field mice. Wield nature's might with this Groupon.
$12 for a 5-Gallon Propane-Tank Refill ($24.87 Value)
The friendly staff tops off 5-gallon tank with propane. The best time to redeem this Groupon is Monday–Friday from 10 a.m.–8 p.m., when Emerald Oil is fully staffed.
With its sloping, spanish-tiled roof and matching fill-station canopy, Emerald Oil looks more like a roadside chateau than a roadside gas station. Nonetheless, visitors to this La Mesa hot spot can fill up their tanks—both gasoline and propane—and pick up any number of little conveniences. Inside the station shop, beer, liquor, and tobacco products rub elbows with a wide variety of sodas, coffee, and snacks. Customers can pick up lotto tickets and newspapers or ask the clerks’ assistance in filling up propane tanks and dream journals until 10 p.m. daily.
