Note that it is illegal to transport refilled 1lb bottles on most US and Canadian ferries.

How does "The Man" know that the bottle has been refilled?

I do this process on the tailgate of the truck in my own driveway. The empty little cylinders chill in the garage freezer. I remove them one at a time to fill, using leather work gloves to avoid freeze burns. I do much like the guy in the video except I don't bother weighing them or purging them. I get about 2/3 - 3/4 full in about a minute, and that's good enough for me. Some of my cylinders are pushing a decade old. I've thrown out two in the last couple years.

That is interesting. I bought one of those and some tanks on a friends garage sale (he was moving out of state) he said to put the 1 lb bottles in the freezer. I have been hesitant to try and use it but this post and the videos make me think it would be OK to try it.

Where do you dream this information up at?

From bcferries.com website

Propane Tanks

Propane valves must be closed and sealed with the tags issued at the ticket booth, and the cylinders must be upright and firmly secured, to prevent tipping.

Service repair vehicles may carry one 25kg cylinder.
RVs are permitted a maximum of two cylinders of not more than 25 kg each (50L water capacity each), provided they are connected to a regulator, and secured in or on the vehicle. Recreational vehicles may carry a third cylinder no larger than 15 kg (30L water capacity) for BBQ needs.
Passenger vehicles are permitted to carry one cylinder Bar-B-Q size (commonly called a 20 pound cylinder).
SAFETY ALERT: "The brass valve in a propane cylinder will be damaged if it comes in contact with anhydrous ammonia. This deterioration will lead to cracking of the valve body or its components and can ultimately result in a violent, unexpected expulsion of the valve from the cylinder, causing personal injury or death." See full Safety Alert for more details.


Where,oh were, does it say ANYTHING about 1lb containers, much less refilled 1lb containers.

I was going to post about a recent purchase that I am in love with when I found this post. I have been refilling the disposable bottles for several years, and have had good luck doing it. I use a setup similar to the one posted above that my former rv tech (retired) made for me to refill the little bottles.

On a whim at the local Runnings store, I bought one of these from Flame King.

It is so simple, I bought another one, so I can always have a full bottle. They sell a kit, but I just use what I had, and don't multitask while refilling the little bottle.

It is 41 degrees outside right now, so the Little Buddy is keeping us toasty warm. I do use the hose for the grill, but will not use the hose indoors.
