Just to be clear guys the 1# DISPOSABLE bottles can not legally be refilled nor or they designed to be refilled. Do what you want but at your own risk.

Glad you posted this. I was scratchin my head over refilling those throw-away bottles, but Lord knows I'm not savvy 'bout such things.

Is not a hard thing to do if you want to take the time.

I do not, that is why I have bought the stuff I want/need to run the portable stove and the Coleman grill off of a separate 20 pound tank.

We do. I crack a window a couple of inches at the heater, and another in the bedroom. I also make sure the batteries are good in the CO detector.

The ODS (oxgen depletion sensor) on the buddy's or any unvented heater will shut the unit down well before there are any issues for most people, that being said if you have allergies or are overly sensitive to something they might give you a headache but it will not be from CO. As said earlier biggest issues will be water vapor and clearance to combustables.

I disagree.

Yes, the ODS will shut the heater down in a low oxygen atmosphere if the system is working correctly. But that is separate form a CO problem. A buildup of CO gas comes from incomplete combustion, which I don't know of any kind of flame that has complete combustion. CO can build up over time even though there is still oxygen in the air. Granted, low O2 will contribute to CO because the flame will not burn as efficiently, but it is entirely possible to have a CO problem long before the heater shuts off from low O2.

But where does everyone set the heater itself?
