Did you know that gas with ethanol can make small engines fail?
The EPA has approved the use of 15 percent ethanol gasoline in vehicles made in 2001 and later. However, the agency prohibits the use in mowers and small engines, stating that it may cause damage.
According to Marv Klowak, global vice president of research and development for Briggs & Stratton, "Ethanol has inherent properties that can cause corrosion of metal parts, including carburetors, degradation of plastic and rubber components, harder starting, and reduced engine life."
It is strongly encouraged that you use a fuel stabilizer to counter the negative effects of ethanol.Read More

Does Solar REALLY Make Sense in Montana?
YES! We have plenty of sun! In fact, we have more solar irradiation (a fancy way of saying sun) than Germany, which is the leading country in the solar market.Read More

The Montana Museum Of Work History is proud to announce our latest, but certainly not oldest exhibit.
The Brecht Company was established in 1853 and eventually sold product around the world. They even produced steam and gasoline cars in 1920.
This is a steam pressure vessel that was originally designed for rendering lard. It’s a heavy double wall riveted tank in amazing condition for being 162 years old.
It is generally believed that the efficacy of these vessels in rendering lard led to it’s early adaption as one of the oldest, if not the oldest, hot tub in Montana. It’s conjectured that the modern day electrically heated and jetted hot tubs owe much of current success to this early predecessor.
The elegant but industrial strength ladder ensures easy access by the users with the utmost need of the therapeutic process. The elevated design ensure easy and complete drainage after use.
Although designed to be heated by steam, this incorporates an early propane fueled water boiler as a backup system. Gauges and controls for pressure are intact and functional. The flux regulator is in remarkable operating condition.
You will notice that the water jet propulsion system reflects the rather cavalier attitude toward safety of that time with an unguarded propeller. The antique gas engine has seen better days and is not functional at this time.
Please feel free to climb inside and take a trip back in time.
We are in the process of restoring the original light and sound system. Look for more this Summer!Read More

At Axmen Propane we call it “Tank up for Summer Fill”
Here’s the idea...
We know that most years the price of propane is lower in the summer. Winter prices can be erratic and sometimes downright nasty. Winter also brings major storms that disrupt supplies and make it difficult to get to many people’s houses. That’s more risk that just isn’t necessary.
The solution is to have enough tank capacity to allow us to fill you on a nice summer day, at the lowest price, once a year.
Call the Propane Office at (406)626-2490 and we'll help you figure out which options work best for you. We also have underground tanks that look great (because you can’t see them). It might be a good time to go down under.Read More

Q. I'm interested in propane wall heaters for my cabin. What do you have that doesn't require power? How does it work?
HomComfort Model DV8 - 7,500 BTU (pictured right) is the perfect heater to add soothing atmospheric warmth to your smaller-size rooms. The slim, compact design of each unit allows it to tuck out of the way on any outside wall. It uses no electricity and is ideal for bedrooms or studies since each unit vents directly to the outside. This wall furnace will add endless comfort to any application. An optional blower, however, does require electricity. There are also models that feature an output of 13,000 BTU's & 21,000 BTU's.Read More
