    I was at menards today and seen that a company is making refillable 1 lb propane bottles. Way to expensive I think as I have been filling the other bottles for years.

    That stand looks nice. I’d like to get just the stand and use the mu old cylinders.

    Those have been out for at least 5 years now. I remember looking at them when they were just a little cheaper online and decided to go with the 10 lb tank instead.

    One of the problems with these tanks is they are a little bigger than the disposable ones. That could be a problem with somethings like my auger. Just put a cap on the disposable tank if you decide to refill them.

    What do you mean by cap?

    I’ve not had very good luck refilling disposables. Valves don’t seal very good on half em, not a fan of rust on flamable items either. If these new expensive refills have better components I’d be buying some.

    They do have better components. If you look at the picture you can see the cap (top) on the tank. That seals the end and helps prevent the valve from leaking. Don’t throw that away. It needs to go back on the tank every time it is not being used. The 1lb disposable tanks valves normally don’t reseal well. So you have to cap them after refilling them just like these.

    people would love to pay that price now! Im glad I bought 5 when I did but now wish I had bought 10. Can’t find these anywhere the last few years. I paid the $14 for the convenience and these things have paid for themselves already. Can’t believe the price of the #1 grenades. Crazy

    If you can’t fill a green bomb you won’t be able to fill these. Learn how to do it right. Never touch the stader needle (sp?) relieve pressure from the top and use a scale. Ton of online videos

    It’s not just that, these FK tanks are just plain built better, they don’t rust and will last a long time.

    That has been debated on this site for years. Be careful, do it right, and you’ll be OK. Use common sense, you’ll know if something is wrong.
