Most of the time propane can be pumped from a tank. As long as there is a liquid port on the tank. The problem with getting a refund or credit for the propane is almost never worth it. This operation will need a propane bobtail and uselly a second truck with a vapor pump (used to raise the pressure in the tank and force it into the truck) Only qualified people can preform this task. A propane company will only pump a tank if it has a problem that has become a safety issue. Cost involved for the dealer two people two trucks, (time and mileage) Two hours minimum. Remember the dealer has already incurred the cost of the delivery so your not going to get a full refund.
