Inflation. Gas prices. Energy prices. The last several years have brought what seems like one more financial worry after the next. Your family, like many families across the country, are probably looking for areas to save and plan in your household budget. That is why we offer our annual Guaranteed Price Program. At Franger Gas, we want you to have not just confidence in our propane service – but peace of mind when it comes to cost.
For our customers, our Guaranteed Price Program offers relief. When you pay for propane gas as it is delivered, that can be hard on the budget and difficult to forecast. GPP can help you plan your spending and offer predictability in a time when many need that in their finances.
Our enrollment period is underway now, and we encourage each of our customers to take advantage now before GPP enrollment ends. We want to give you peace of mind and predictability.
Guaranteed Price Program Runs May 1, 2023 – April 30, 2024. The deadline for sign-up is June 1, 2023.
What is GPP?
It is our budget billing program that allows you to get a predictable energy bill. There is no cost to join and it allows you to make the same payment every month. To get your payments, we estimate your annual use and develop a payment plan that meets your needs. Even more – we also guarantee your rate. GPP guarantees your price never exceeds a certain level, regardless of what the energy markets do.
We break down your total season’s heating bill into monthly payments. As a GPP customer, you are automatically enrolled in our worry-free Automatic Fill Service.
Act now to take advantage of this Franger Gas Program! There’s no cost to join and you’ll get a predictable bill each month.
How does Guaranteed Price work?
We estimate your propane gas usage for the next 11 months, based on your past usage and tank size as well as factoring in weather and propane price forecasts. Prices will vary based on individual residential customer accounts.
We divide that amount by 11 to determine your monthly payment amount.
We review your plan throughout the year to make sure your budget amount is keeping pace with your actual usage. Guaranteed Price is settled in April and recalculated for the new plan year that starts on May 1.
This is a free service for residential customers whose accounts are up to date, and you can discontinue it at any time.
What are the benefits of the program?
Benefits to our Guaranteed Price Program include:
A Guaranteed Price (No higher than $2.099 for 250+ gallon tanks, and $2.499 for 100 gallon tanks, from May 1, 2023, through April 30, 2024.)
Summer Fill Discount (other companies give you just one price for the entire year)
Equal Monthly Payments (you can also make payments in advance)
Automatic Fill Guarantee (No extra cost for this great service)
Use our GPP payment calculator to determine if you qualify. You will receive an estimate of your monthly payment plan, and your estimated payment will be sent to a Franger Gas specialist who will be in touch to finalize your plan.
Switching your propane provider to Franger Gas is simple and rewarding. In just three easy steps, you can have the best propane service around:
1. Sign up with Franger Gas.
After choosing to end your existing contract with your old provider, take a minute to enjoy the decision to switch from a company that doesn’t care about its customers to one that does. You’ll need to contact us to let us know exactly what you will need, such as a new tank or lease agreement on one of ours. If you already own your tank, get an online quote for our Guaranteed Pricing Program, or talk to one of our specialists at (574) 266-2118.
2. Schedule propane tank set up and installation.
If you do not already own a tank, your new propane tank will be provided for you. We will schedule a tank set up when you call us. This is the first step when a customer is changing companies. We will unhook the old company propane tank, move it aside to where they can retrieve it and then set our propane tank in its place. Then, the outgoing company can come and remove their equipment. Tank set up is always done before removal to eliminate a gap in service for the the customer.
Step 3. Enjoy the switch to Franger Gas.

As we come to the end of one of the strangest years ever, this is the perfect time to reflect on a word that doesn’t get used often enough: gratitude.
Our customers have given all of us at Franger Gas Company so many reasons to say “Thanks!” You continue to trust us to provide your homes, businesses and farms with propane throughout the year.
You have been patient dealing with all of the inconveniences that life in the COVID-19 world has forced upon our lives and businesses. We appreciate your understanding as we adapted and reassigned different drivers to deliver propane to your homes and businesses. And you have continued to get your grill tanks filled in overwhelming amounts. Thank you!
We’re also grateful for the dedication and loyalty of our amazing employees. You have been hard at work through all the COVID restrictions and lockdowns. Since Franger Gas was designated an “essential business,” you helped us not miss a day of providing customers with the services they need. You also have put in long hours and helped us deal with extra regulations imposed on us by state governments. And you have continued to provide our customers with service beyond their expectations. Thank you!
Without our customers and our awesome staff, there is no Franger Gas Company. Thank you for being a part of our family for over 74 years!
We like to live by a modern twist to the Aesop’s fable about the ant and the grasshopper: Don’t wait until you are on empty to find a gas station.
No one wants to see even a hint of disruption in the energy supply that fuels our everyday lives, like comfortable indoor temperatures, plenty of warm water or full grill tanks for outdoor cooking. That’s why we’re working hard at Franger Gas to make sure you have a reliable source of supply, no matter what happens with demand.
Take the worry out of winter. Buy your propane supply for your home at a locked-in price before the heating season begins.
You buy clean American gas when you buy propane. The U.S. leads the world in propane production, according to the National Propane Gas Association. We constantly source our supply from providers that maintain quality standards we know are important for customers like you.
Buying local gives you better value. We know our community and what it takes to keep your family comfortable. After all, we call this home for our families too. That’s why we always look ahead to understand supply flows, weather, worldwide economies and national demand for gas that affect logistics and price.
Tips to help you plan ahead for your fuel needs
Make sure you have plenty of fuel for your home, farm, business or LPG-fueled vehicle with these simple tips.
Check your propane tank gauge to make sure you have the fuel you need. If you are like us, you’re staying home more, cooking more meals at home, using heated water for more bathing. That means changes in your propane consumption.
Call one of our local offices if your level drops below 30 percent. We’re here to keep your fuel supply filled season after season.
Save money with our Automatic Fill Service. We monitor your tank level for you and give you a discount over our standard call-in rate.
Avoid out-of-gas calls. Making smart decisions now about your fuel supply can keep your tank filled and help limit in-person contact or entry into your home or business. Remember you can always pay your bill online, send us an email, or call us, (574) 264-2118.
If you need help from our service team, rest assured our technicians follow extra precautions with proper protective equipment and disinfectants while in the field.

Let’s face it. Without a propane tank that works, your outdoor grill is just shiny yard art. That’s why it’s important to make sure your grill – and its gas supply – are in good shape and ready for barbecue time.
Here are tips to keep you cooking along this summer.
Stake out a safe zone. Choose the right spot for your grill away from structures, deck railings and overhangs, including trees and bushes. Outdoor grills cause an average of 10,600 home fires each year, according to the National Fire Protection Association. Avoid becoming a statistic by using your grill in a well-ventilated area.
Check for leaks. When your garden hose springs a leak, it’s fairly obvious. Not so with the compact propane tank for your grill. Before lighting a burner, take a moment to check your cylinder for dents, damage, rust or worn areas that can cause gas to trickle out. Also take a few sniffs around the tank and grill area. Propane has an odorant added to it that smells like rotten eggs. If you detect a foul odor, do not ignite anything!
Use a leak detection solution. Lightly spray a simple solution of dish soap and water on the valve and hose to make sure they are leak-free. If you see bubbles around the connections, get the system repaired before you use it again.
Keep a clean grill. Grease buildup fuels flame flare-ups that can easily get out of control. Avoid grill fires by cleaning your grill before each use. A quick brushing over the grates will help food cook more evenly and even taste better.
Pay attention. Grill fires happen quickly. That’s why you need to keep an eye on the grill as you cook. If a fire flares up inside your grill, turn off the gas tank immediately. That will cut the fuel supply to the fire. Remember to leave the lid open until the flare-up burns off.
Avoid a refill run. You aren’t going to drive far on a flat tire. That’s when a spare comes in handy. Same is true with fuel for your grill. With an extra tank on hand, you can make a quick swap and keep on cooking.
Get what you pay for. Exchange cabinets at the nearby store may be convenient. But oftentimes you pay a flat rate for a less-than-full tank. Make sure you get a full grill tank by refilling cylinders at Franger Gas. We weigh your tank every time, so you know you pay only for the gas in your cylinder.
Refill your grill tank 5 times with at least 15 pounds at Franger Gas and get up to 20 pounds FREE with your next refill.
Remember – size matters. Get the right tank that fits your needs. Steel cylinders from Franger Gas range in size from 5 to 100 pounds.
