Presto sales in astoria cheapest... Give them a call first to make sure they can do on apot fill that day cuz sometimes they are to busy to do spot fills and they won't hold your tank they only spot fill

I pay $12 for a 5lb. and I think that a 10lb. is $18 or so.

Open on Saturdays 8am - 12pm

Here's their hours off of their site:

Flushing
35-07 College Pt. Boulevard
Flushing, New York 11354
718-445-5151
Fax 718-445-5151
7:00 - 4:00 Monday - Friday
8:00 - 12:00 Saturday



I was tired of going to AWISCO in Maspeth and having to put up with their attitudes like they're doing you a favor. Last time I was there the guy also overcharged me for the swap. I ended up paying for a 10lb. which was about $26.00 when I took home a 5lb. I noticed after I got in the car and that pretty much sealed their fate with me. Besides, I live in Flushing so finding AIRWELD was a Godsend.

Yeah, I actually gave them a call and same price as u posted, very close to where I live and a + for opening Sat. The guy on the phone said I have to leave my tank there and pick it up a few days later for a refill though, they don't fill on the spot. Were you swapping the tank? I want to keep my shinny tank.

I actually lost my tank to AWISCO because they didn't offer spot refills. So I ended up swapping it for one of their FUGLY ones. Turns out that the guys at AIRWELD had a nice shiny one and were all but happy to gain me as a customer and to repaint the crappy looking colors off of the AWISCO one I brought in. I just swap them nowadays because its sitting inside the cabinet anyway.

Airweld at the College Point Blvd is convenient but they only do swaps...you would have to go the maspeth location in order to get a tank refilled if you don't want to give it up. 5lb is about $18 and the 10 is about $23. I wish it was the prices you quoted but it seems to go up a little year by year

44-23 54th Avenue
Maspeth, NY 11378
(718) 392-6940
