This is how I use mine.
I also carry the 20 pound tank with "bottle eliminator" hose to use when my bottles are empty and a "bottle refilling adapter" if I get stuck (like I did when a hungry squirrel chewed a hole in my eliminator hose when my bottle was empty.
If you have never used on it is not as easy as the instructions make it look.
The empty "bottle" has to be frozen to make it cold enough to get a decent fill.
The 20 pound tank must be inverted to you get liquid out of the tank valve and not gas.
The adapter must be put on the tank valve and the bottle on that. Since the typical "camping bottle" is wider than than the metal collar above the fill port, you will need to use the edge of a picnic table or something to support the tank while the bottle fills and pressures equalize. Reaching under all that to open the valve can also be a challenge.
