Trainwire,

I have been filling mine for over 6 years, w/o a problem. I boondock the winter in Baja, and one LB bottles can go for more then $8 down south. Many people on our beach down here are is doing it also, I use the bottles for my outside BBQ, stove, Latern and Stove. Got my adapter from Harbor Freight. You will find that you can not fill the bottle, as full as the factory. Concerned about over use of a bottle, then when home I'll replace them when Wally World has a sale, and start over.

Funny the stuff they put on labels i guess that means it is ok for them to blow up in the state you refilled them in but don't take them across state lines and let them blow i bet there known to the state of California to cause cancer too.

Resources are limited. Refilling is good.

Ya know I have never read the labels on the tank. I do zig and zag through New England, but I use them for my Big Buddy Heater while winter boon docking with my wife, using the big buddy keeps more amps in my battery for lights and furnace though the night. With some of the talk about exploding and over use of a tank- well now that has me thinking that maybe I'm just being to cheap!! For my grill I do have an extension hose to go to my 20lb tank. Thanks again for all the input.

I briefly though it was because of tax reasons as they vary from state to state, but wouldn't that also hold true for 30-40 lb'ers? Wouldn't that be a nightmare to have to stop and weigh your tanks and pay a tax whenever you crossed into another state

OH BOY YOUV"E DONE IT NOW !
I sure hope that some official type person doesn't read this or that will be the newest tax. Especially here in the Tarnished State.

Well if it turns into a taxation - well then they can kiss my *%#. With gas prices creeping up I don't get to go as far as I would like, but we have a few local boon docking sites and we have fun! And by not going away further into a tourist area, we don't shop and spend money! Although when we do stay overnight at Walmart.... That usually cost me money cause I'm always buying something for camping! They sure knew what they were doing by letting folks dry camp! I'm going to continue refilling my little bottles, now that I know how. And not worry about transporting contraband across state line and when I feel it's time to retire a bottle I will be sure to bring it home to my local recycle center.

I don't see any way they could tell if it was re-filled unless you wrote a date on the label to see how long it lasts with being refilled, compared to a new one. I have never seen a propane bottle checking Nazi, either.
