Propane Tank Rental Program

Would you like to make the switch to efficient, clean-burning propane fuel without making a substantial upfront investment in a new tank? If you’re a home or business owner in Virginia or parts of North Carolina, Foster Fuels can help.

Our propane tank rental program offers a convenient, cost-effective solution. Rent an above-ground or underground tank at competitive rates and with no long-term commitments. We’ll also handle the installation, inspection, and filling of your tank, removing the burden from your shoulders.

Underground or above-ground, with our tank rental program, Foster Fuels takes care of you. You get smaller payments and Foster Fuels gets all the responsibility. We take care of the tank, inspect it, fill it, and you have one less thing to worry about!


Foster Fuels’ propane tank rental rates are low enough to make renting an economical choice for both long- and short-term applications. When you rent from us, we’ll take care of all the installation and setup of the unit. Best of all, you’re not locked into your purchase. If you ever need to move or switch to a different fuel source, you won’t lose a thing. Benefits of renting a propane fuel tank include:

  • Smaller, more manageable payments
  • Foster Fuels’ liability for maintaining and taking care of the tank—you are not liable
  • Flexibility in the event of a move or relocation


Our propane tank rental program offers a host of benefits:

Cost Savings

Propane burns very efficiently—you’ll end up using less fuel, which will result in lower fuel costs in the long run. What’s more, clean propane fuel creates less wear and tear on appliances such as furnaces and water heaters. They’ll last longer and require less maintenance, reducing your long-term ownership costs.

Affordable Payments

Besides the cost savings from using propane, you’ll also benefit from our affordable rates. You’ll appreciate the small, manageable payments for a propane tank rental in VA and parts of NC, especially if you’re on a tight budget.


You won’t have to deal with installing or maintaining your tank. Foster Fuels will still own your tank, and we’ll assume the responsibility for any structural or manufacturing concerns that come with ownership. We’ll take care of all the maintenance, repair, and inspection tasks. And if you choose to sign up for our convenient auto-fill program, we’ll monitor your fuel consumption and refill the tank as needed. You won’t have to worry about running out of propane in the middle of winter. Renting a tank takes the maintenance out of your concern and provides one less thing for you to worry about.


Unlike buying a tank, you’re not “locked in” by a long-term investment or restrictive financing arrangement with a propane tank rental. You do not have to commit to putting a lot of money upfront to purchase a tank. Our rental program makes it easy, convenient, and affordable for you to use propane in your home.

Environmentally Friendly

If you’re like a lot of Virginians, you’re concerned about protecting and preserving our environment. The Clean Air Act lists propane as an alternative clean fuel. The burning of propane produces low hydrocarbon, soot, and carbon monoxide emissions. And up to 90 percent of all propane consumed in the U.S. is produced domestically, resulting in lower environmental transportation costs. You can feel good about choosing propane!

Just a quick comment about the customer service I receive anytime I need help from your store in Rustburg on route 29. WD Holland has been extremely great at taking care of me and my family.

William Gavin

I would like to especially commend your employees Jonathan and Brandon for their courtesy and for their expertise in installing the tank where I wanted and for not damaging nearby plantings and shed. They were friendly and always most professional. I look forward to dealing with Foster Fuels in the future in large part due to the quality of your employees. Thank you.
