I'm in central Macomb County. From what I can see, most of the welding shops around here (within 5 miles or so) don't actually fill tanks, they swap as the filling is done somewhere else.
$80 isn't bad I guess, as to buy a new off the net is like $60 and then there is shipping. So a $10 premium to get a full tank is OK I guess. I'm kind of leaning that route as then it's walk in swap it out and back to pouring beers...
Wanted to see what other in the area were doing...
