propane bottles

  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I have decided on using propane for my post SHTF fuel. It will be used for cooking and heating when wood is not appropriate. Also as a light source if need be. My concern is what is the most economic way to aquire it. Up until now, I have been stocking the 1 lb disposables at about $2.50 apiece...

    Is it worth it to purchase the adapter to refill them? Do they hold seal after many uses is my concern being any given day I can be at 6000 - 9000 feet above sea level. The adapter cost $9.95. Thanks

    Just curious. How many of the little green propane bottles do you keep around? I'm a believer that you can never have enough, we try to keep 10 minimum but I think you could have 4 times that many and not have enough...especially considering that sometimes Wally World has them for $2.50 or less.

    How does everyone store their propane? I know the dangers of stroring it inside with possible leakage through the release valve. But stroring it outside with temperature changes could ruin the tank. So where do you store the large 20 lb tanks and the small 1 lb tanks?

    I own 2 propane heaters. A big buddy..which is rated for indoor use and a tank top heater (I bought today). The tank top heater attaches to a 20lb propane tank and is rated for outside only. The Big Buddy can use either a 20lb tank or two 1lb cylinders. If both are using the same gas why is one...

    For those of you who use or are stocking up on propane or just need an extra tank or two, I ran across a great deal yesterday: Some of The Great Indoors stores are closing / going out of business. One of the stores in my area has brand new unfilled 20# propane tanks (the BBQ grill size) marked...
