    Depends on what company your working for. And also where you live. If you in a area where its seasonal propane work, then you better hope they pull other products in that bottle to keep you busy.

    If its a company that hauls things like butane, anhydrous ammonia, and propylene along with propane. Then they can keep you busy year round.

    If its a company that sticks to propane only. Then you better hope the area is heavily dependent on propane.

    I inquired recently with a company about hauling propane. Basically sounded like only a few of the guys they have, run propane full time. The other guys have to hook up to pnuematics , or haul logs, or whatever else is available when propane is slow.

    I'm going back to fuel hauling. As long as you find a company that will have enough work to keep you busy in the winter, its a nice gig. It's about the easiest work you'll come across.
