Our Story


Founder Dale Stanford
Founder Dale Stanford
Stanford LP Gas is a second-generation, family-owned regional propane supplier. In 1957, Dale and Edna Stanford started the business filling and delivering 100-pound cylinders under the Stanford Skelgas name.


Since then, Stanford LP Gas has grown into one of mid-Michigan's major LP gas suppliers. From our locations in Midland and Gladwin, we serve Midland, Bay, Saginaw, Gladwin and Clare counties.

As a local company firmly rooted in the community, we can take care of our customers in a way that a nonlocal or out-of-state company can't. 

At Stanford LP Gas, we feel that our responsibility to our customers is far more than just selling you fuel. We are dedicated to providing prompt and courteous service. We also provide continuous in-house training to update our employees on procedures in an ever-changing industry to ensure the best service and latest expertise for your fuel needs.

Our Pledge


At Stanford LP Gas, we feel our responsibility to our Family of Customers goes beyond just selling you fuel. We operate today on the same time-honored traditions of my father by providing excellent customer service, competitive pricing and peace of mind.


Our Customer Bill of Rights is just one way we work toward fulfilling our responsibility to our customers.

Thank you for considering Stanford LP Gas.
