I have seen that Harbor Freight sell a llttle adapter for refilling the small disposable bottles from a larger 20 or 30 pound bottle.

It would be quite a $ saving (although they charge $20 for the little adapter!) and I have been tempted, but have resisted so far because of what I have read about it not being legal to transport them - though how anyone would ever know is beyond me!

Im not really sure what the hazard would be - other than maybe it is possible to overfill a bottle?

I have one I picked up for a dollar at a rally flea market. Only used it a couple of times. The trick is that the larger bottle must be inverted before hooking up the small bottle. Not to easiest thing to do. Seems to work ok. You can hear the liquid transferring. Remove the small bottle when the sound stops. Take legal advice here with a grain of salt. Most of the laws quoted are for commercial transport.
