Well its better then watching the news and reading the internet telling us all that the U.S. is screwed finacially and that we are all gonna be broke in a year or so.

Personally, I'd like to vote we move this thread to people using chain saws. Then we can debate on a person using a chain saw, and how we are all idiots for using chain saws and how we should hire it done by a professional because someones buddy or someone on the news had an accident with a chain saw and lost some body part. We could also throw in how the gas we put into plastic gas jugs is dangerous and how insurance has issues with it. Then the next guy can say how a metal gas can is approved by insurance vs the plastic, but if it falls off the truck and scraps down the road sparking it will start a fire. That way we can have pictures of fires, blown up stuff, and mutalated people all in a thread......... :cookoo:

Nothing like taking off on a tangent, is there?  ::)

The difference between this and a chainsaw, is a professional would not fill up these non-refillable propane tanks.


Yep, I have nothing better to do until I hit the duck pond tomorrow. :thumbsup:

Can't believe I wasted my time reading this years new posts to an old never ending topic.

I have never filed one or used a filled one but I have some questions/statements for people to think about.

1. What makes the store bought ones safer than the filled ones? Store bought ones do leak just like refilled ones can. Last year I had a couple stored in a tote with lid, I opened the lid and smelt strong gas, I immediately put lid back and took tote outside to air out.  My opinion, either new or refilled can leak making both dangerous.

2.  Just thinking. If Manufactors did make 1 lbers safe to refill. How long would they be in business? If they can make 5 lbers safe they can make 1 ibers safe to refill. That right there makes me wonder if the manufactors main reason for saying DO NOT REFILL is to keep sales up. If every 1 lber was safe to refill, allot more people would be doing it and sales would fall way down for new ones.

3. Common sense tells me the tanks sidewalls/valves/seals are made strong enough to refill. If they wasn't then how could they be safe right out of the store? Since no refilling propain store will refill them, the manufactors have to stamp them "DO NOT REFILL" to stop customers from refilling.

4. I believe the people who are trained and work at propain refilling stations could fill them safely if they wanted. But there's very little profit for them to mess with 1-Lbers so they don't. And Tom Dick and Harry aren't trained so it can be hazardous for them.

They do sell refilliable 1-lb tanks, heres a link. No idea the cost, doesn't say.
