  • How to Completely Refill a 1lb "disposable" Propane Bottle

    Illegal to transport after refill. The government can't stop you from filling your water bed with gasoline, but they can make it illegal for you to carry gasoline in a water bed strapped on top of your vehicle on public roads. These disposable cylinders are DOT 39 cylinders which are not designed to withstand the repeated stresses of rapid change in pressure and temperature (via refilling) on the cylinder. It's inherently dangerous to refill these cylinders even though accidents have been rare. An explosion caused by the rupture of a DOT 39 cylinder due to refilling was reported in Polk County, FL in 2012, killing the individual and injuring her husband.https://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2012/02/06/1-dead-1-injured-in-polk-county-garage-explosion/https://www.phmsa.dot.gov/training/hazmat/ph...

    I would recommend getting the Flame King refillable 1 lb propane cylinder instead of scouring campsites for these used disposable propane cylinders. These can rupture from repeated refills, it's happened before. Not to mention also illegal to transport after refill.https://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2012/02/06/1-dead-1-injured-in-polk-county-garage-explosion/https://www.phmsa.dot.gov/training/hazmat/phmsa-cautions-against-refilling-dot-39-cylinders

    I ran it as instructed, everything is synced except for the first two digits of the year. Instead of 2018, it said 1918.
