    the best way to get rid of the large 20lber is to do an exchange for a newer tank that's filled... as there are reg's on the valves... they wont refill if they are out of date... the other thing you can do is have some one make a smoker out of a couple of them... the 20lbers make a sweet smoke box....and an old blown out 100lb air tank from a compressor makes a nice cooker...

    I filled 26 tanks the other day off a 100lb tank. Should be good for the rest of the season.

    Bump again. Unless you are wealthy you should be doing this. All of us. Recycle and save $$.

    I saw a couple of guys asking how to do this so I thought I'd bring it back to the top.

    Does anyone have the ability to cut the fill valve out and thread it and the tank. I personally would feel much more comfortable with my tanks having this feature, as it would allow yearly internal visual checks of the cylinder.

    Valves are threaded already, use a tire valve stem remover to tighten loose leaky valves.

    It's on sale on Gmtn website for 12.95. Take the receipt back to the store and see about a refund. What gander are you by?
