Today you will learn how to fill a butane lighter.
First, you need butane, it is always in an aerosol can, if it isn't, it's probably lighter fluid, don't use that.
Shown below are where you fill them.
Stick the nozzle of the can into the hole.
You now have fire.

Warning: Do NOT do this near an open flame.
For those wondering why they can't refill their butane lighters, it's because you must first find a small, solid tool to press against the valve on the lighter to release it of pressure. Once all pressure is released, refill and you should be good to go.
When topping off, be certain that you are going to make a solid connection. If something changes with the make-up of the gas inside the lighter, you'll end up having to drain it and refill.
When I refilled my lighter the first time, I put too much in (I didn't think it was possible). I found that upon lighting it, the flame would stay on even though I had released the button. I just kept doing this and eventually the excess butane was burnt off.
