Oh, they do. That's not the issue.
Frankly, my main goals here are to get a better idea of how weather and
changes we make to thermostat settings affect our propane usage and,
more importantly, to make sure we're not being charged for more propane
than we're actually using. I'm informed that at least one propane
delivery driver in this area was caught in the past billing customers
for more propane than he actually delivered, then putting the excess
propane into his own tank.
