No, you need a "Throw away" bottle of Propane.. you see the valve/fitting on the top of the bottle.
Well the hose connection on the Stay-A-While is the same thing only a bit better made.. It has a valve in it, same as the throw away bottle, (As does the grill end of the hose I might add) they all use that same fitting, Thus, when you remove the hose the valve closes, Same as the throwaway bottle.
NOTE: There is some propane loss from the hose when you disconnect, So do not be surprised by it.
