PROPANE CYLINDERS??

Recommended Posts

sniper9

Does anybody know of a way to fill the small 2 pound cylinders from a twenty pound cylinder it just seems like such a waste to keep throwing them away plus they get pretty spendy after a while.

I've heard that cabelas sells a propane filler/coupler to fill the disposables. Check out their website.

The adapter is about 20 plus dollar, we sell it at the shop. They are good way to recycle the old pounder and pay less than $1 for propane, compare to buying new ones from 3-to 5 bucks.

I use the cabelas adaptor and it works great. The trick is to keep the 20lb tank inside (room temp) and put the empty 1lb tanks in the freezer for 15-20 minutes, the propane transfers better that way and fills to the same weight as a store bought one

I also have heard too many horror stories about filling 1lb cylinders to attempt it myself. Buying a hose and running your heater off a bulk tank is way to go IMO.

I'll only fill a 1lb tank maybe 5 times then discard it and buy a new one. Put a mark with a sharpie on everytime you fill to keep track. Havent had one leak yet.

      Hey Guys, I'm wondering what the water temp on the St.Croix is. I Haven't herd anything, all I know is that Catfish become inactive after it drops below 60F. I want to know if they have already become inactive, you would think we would at least have until October.    One more inquire,  anyone one know about a nice carp lake north of the metro. Most people don't like fishing for common carp, but they are a great fall fish to catch when they Get 30+ plus pounds.

      All right man I'll make sure to tell you how I do, I have also been looking at the sunrise river. The sunrise Looks like one of those rivers that all the local kids fished in the 80's, But then it got polluted and over fished. I'll Try the sunrise one of these days, I don't know what i'll catch,  Maybe it's like in the Simpsons with those Three eyed fish.    As for the rum river, I can't wait to fish that. I'll wait for a nice cold front when all those small mouth start to eat everything in site, They need the fat for winter. I'll make sure to tell you how it goes.
