The price calculator is a nifty tool within Lynx that can calculate the total price, or gallons, for a delivery. This can come in handy for calculating pre-buy deposits when creating pre-buy contracts, or if a customer wants to know how many gallons of propane they can purchase with a given amount of money.
The price calculator can be found within the tank(s) tab of a customer's account.
