Ah! Terry! Could you read all of the markings on that little OPD valve? I'm looking for the manufacturer of this valve, and anything will help!
Thanks!
Lynn

It might be prudent to add a ground wire to the tank you are transferring to and from, the flow through the hoses will create static electricity. Just give the built up charge a safe place to go..

Terry- that gauge is of NO use to me. I need one with a sending unit to signal the METER ON MY INSIDE CONTROL PANEL.

And just how does DOT figure out if one fills the shitcanable small cylinders?
They using russian spy satellites or do forum readers turn them in , or does DOT read all these threads.

Jeeze I post something to help those that want to keep their older rigs functional and this is what I get.

thanks for the tip Buell, I'll take it into consideration only cause it came from Texas, Hank Hills birthstate, yea the guy with the small ureathra.

I doubt that DOT would get too involved, but in case of an accident, the insurance company would care a lot. Meaning that they wouldn't pay a penny for damages caused by a non-refillable cylinder that had been refilled.

Lynn, it's on the dark side right now, I'll see if I can find the manufacturer info for you.
Looks like Tim is still doing okay, he's in here posting, and not running down the street emulating Richard Pryor--or is that immolating?...

Terry;
Me thinks you have a Manchester Tank.
My google works in the dark- you must have an earlier version,
Maybe try inverting it or transferring info somehow.

I'll Bite.

Let us be real clear about this, there are only a billion English speaking people who could chance upon this post, 300 Million of them my countrymen. If, as this posts threads explored, you want to recharge disposable cylinders and even inadvertently 'transport' one of them you are committing a felony with up to five years imprisonment. That is the plain facts and no one had mentioned it previously for consideration.

Get a 5-pound or 11-pound mini-cylinder with internal needle valve and the usual style fittings if you want to transfer to another smaller reusable cylinder since there is no harm nor foul if you work safely.

I'm confused, who are you to tell me what to do?
Please show me the law regarding the topic of your choice.
I'm guessing if it were against the law, the refill devise would be outlawed,
kinda like the cigarette thing.
Well I'm gonna do as I wish- Let me be real clear about that!!
Don't camp anywhere around me.
P.S. I'm smart enough not to live in 15 below weather.
and yes you did bite Isuggest you bite harder on your next subject.

Easy, kids. Tim is trying to further his life experience through scientific research. He has conducted experiments, posted his findings. He has been told some of his experiments could be illegal in certain circumstances, and has taken this information under advisement. We don't need to lose our tempers, and start calling each other names. That's how threads get closed, and warnings get issued.
That said, let's sit back, and watch the show...

I, myself have "conducted research" into the filling of 1 lb propane cylinders, since the price, even at Wally World has gotten sky high. Placing the 1 # in an icy water bath works quite well, I have found in my research.

One thing to consider. The vapor pressure in a propane tank is the same, at a given temperature, if the bottle is full or even if there is an inch or two of propane in the tank. Those "gauges" that you buy and screw onto the tank are about useless. Might give you a few minutes warning, if you happen to be standing there before the tank runs out.
