LPG No Longer Regulated by the TDLR
Updated: Oct 8, 2021
Per the announcement from our TPGA President last week, effective September 17, 2021, propane retailers are no longer required to register LPG "motor fuel" meters with the Texas Department of Licensing & Regulation (TDLR). TDLR stopped accepting new and renewal license applications for the LPG motor fuel meters on September 17, 2021. TDLR will return any LPG applications and LPG payments to the applicant received on or after the 17th. If you have an unpaid LPG motor fuel meter invoice from TDLR dated February 2021 – November 2021, disregard it. Please note: Propane retailers will continue to be required to register their LPG meters and scales with the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA).
DO YOU SELL GASOLINE OR DIESEL?
THIS MESSAGE IS FOR YOU. TDLR invoices will now only reflect the other motor fuel (e.g., gasoline and diesel) registrations, minus the LPG motor fuel meter registrations. September, October, & November TDLR invoices went out before the exemption; therefore, these invoices will more than likely have LPG "motor fuel" meters on them. TPGA has been advised to instruct our gasoline and diesel retail members to strike through the LPG line item on their current TDLR invoices and pay the remaining balance for the gasoline, diesel, and other non-LPG motor fuel meters only. If you have a past due TDLR invoice, don't hesitate to get in touch with the TDLR Motor Fuel Metering & Quality Program Team at Tools.email@example.com to give you your revised total as past due invoices accrue late charges based on how late they are.
Please contact the Texas Propane Gas Association at (800)325-7427 if you have any questions on this matter.
