The Costco that I goto, did flat rate, then by weight and then flat rate again.

I almost walked off with my propane tank because I thought they were doing it by weight, so I gave them my tank to fill up and they gave it right back to me. I asked them if i get a receipt so I can go inside to pay and he said I have to pay first. Anyways my tank was empty regardless

This is the correct answer to the question.

I went and got propane yesterday and the process as outlined above was super easy. (This was at the laird/ridgeway costco in mississauga) Drop off tank, wait for it to be filled, take receipt to tire centre, pay, show attendant your receipt, off you go. Rate for propane yesterday was 59 cents a litre. so my empty tank cost me about 8.70.
