    What is the formula? How big of a settlement are we talking about?

    Blue Rhino has made a commitment regarding its sales and marketing practices, and agreed to pay Class Members who make valid and timely claims according to a formula described in the Settlement Agreement.

    Thanks! I bought a few of their gas tanks in the past couple of years (that's the brand our local hardware store carries), so I guess some settlement $$$ is due. Not sure if I can find all those receipts though...
