Propane is an abundant, clean-burning, versatile fuel that has a number of practical applications in and around the home. Many homeowners throughout Virginia are discovering the benefits of using propane to power a variety of outdoor living products, including fire pits, patio heaters, grills, outdoor lighting and pool heating. In addition to serving as a reliable source of propane fuel backed by a comprehensive menu of maintenance and repair services, Foster Fuels is proud to offer a wide variety of outdoor propane products, including fire pits, grills, logs, and more. Enjoy every part of your home by creating an outdoor oasis with propane outdoor living products! 


An outdoor propane fire pit is perfect for entertaining and keeping warm while enjoying an evening in the backyard with family and friends. Propane fire pits ignite easily with just a quick turn of a knob on the gas tank. Unlike their wood-burning counterparts, there is no debris to clean up, which saves time and prevents having to safely dispose of messy, potentially flammable ashes.


For many Virginia homeowners, the patio is their favorite place for grilling, reading, conversing, or simply kicking back and watching the sun go down at the end of the day. An outdoor propane patio heater allows you to enjoy your patio even as the weather starts to get cooler. Outdoor propane heaters are available in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and styles—you’re sure to find one that is perfect for your home.

Outdoor propane heaters operate via liquid propane gas that is stored in a refillable 20-pound tank. You won’t have to bother with connecting your heater to a gas line. Propane heaters can provide an economical way to keep your patio warm. A 20-pound tank is inexpensive to refill, and one refill can provide up to 10 hours of heat. Because propane is a clean-burning, environmentally friendly fuel, you can use your heater on your patio with no worries about pollution or contamination.


The ultimate summer activity is grilling and having company over to enjoy it! We carry top of the line grills for the grilling experts and enthusiasts. Check out one of the Broilmaster options that we offer.

Have you ever dreamed of having your own outdoor kitchen? A built-in propane grill can serve as an outdoor extension of your kitchen, allowing you to do more of your cooking outside. Built-in grills are ideally suited for entertaining guests during the warmer months of the year. Your grill can also serve as a key component of your outdoor living area—surround it with comfortable patio furniture and other amenities, and it will quickly become the favorite place to relax and enjoy a meal or hang out with family and friends. High-quality, built-in grills can add value to your home and make it more attractive to prospective buyers should you decide to sell it.


Propane fueled tiki torches and gas lights add an exotic ambiance to any outdoor space. Tiki Torches and gas lights serve a dual purpose – they provide unique lighting for outdoor entertaining as well as protection against insects and other outdoor pests.


In Virginia, our unpredictable summer weather means pool owners frequently require additional heating to keep their water at a comfortable temperature. For most residential applications, propane pool heaters offer the best combination of value and convenience. 

For most purposes, a propane pool heater offers the best compromise between energy efficiency and effective operationPropane heaters don’t rely on the weather or on the availability of power from the grid, meaning you can keep the pool party going past the summer season!
