But go ahead... even the OP admits he was a gnats-whisker from blowing up his camper doing it. Unfortunately, you probably would no longer be eligible for a Darwin award.[/QUOTE]

Wow sorry I asked!

We get the 1 lb. bottles at Sam's for about $2.99 each. At that price there is NO way in HADES I'm taking a chance on refilling them. The ones we buy are Worthington brand and they plainly state "DO NOT REFILL".

I'd had to have one blow up in or near my RV and have our insurance deny the claim if they find out we were using refilled 1 lb. bottles when a new one is only $2.99.

Ain't worth it folks.

Just

ain't

worth

it

I'm about to buy a 5 lb. tank for our Grill 2 Go. Maybe a 10 lb. pancake type tank.

Amazon's disclaimer as to the legality regarding the sale of certain items.

i.e. Amazon selling them doesn't mean it's a legal product. Buy at your own risk.

I repeat: at $2.99 a can, it's NOT WORTH IT, IMO. YMMV

I don't even like carrying those small cans around. That's why I'm looking for a bigger (legally refillable) TANK with an adapter for our grill.

Reading the label's small print confirmed my paranoia about even exposing them to sunlight.

FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

This one speaks volumes.

Its not so much the cost of new vs refill as it is disposing of all those empty cylinders. You can buy those refill adapters at Walmart, Lowes, just about any hardware store, a lot of Rv dealers etc. I suspect if it was that big of a problem there would be lawsuits galore and no one would sell them. I cant recall ever hearing of one blowing up. I leak check mine when I'm done. Its also illegal to speed and text and drive but that doesn't prevent a lot of people from doing it.

I bought myself an adapter and hose at Cabellas a long time ago. I can hook my propane stove up to my propane tank on the trailer and eliminate the need for those little bottles. I still carry a few and use them off an on but I'm not dependent on them.
