Since the disposable one pount propane bottles are gettin pricey I am now refilling my own. Only deal is the seals are not up to more than a few fillings before they begin to leak. I cannot find threaded caps the these bottles which would make them safe. Anyohe know of such a threaded cap?

That would be nice to have. I don't refill but I've had them leak after a single use.

Found some here: ">la-595232370949&abcId=1141016&merchant........ST7C29aRHcsxNwgO5UaooxCrvhoC5xYQAvD_BwE]

Amazon has them too.

I quit using the 1 pound Coleman disposable tanks a long, long time ago. I keep a couple around for my blow torch, but as far as using on my Coleman Gas stove, I use a standard propane tank. In year past, I've used 20 pound tanks. Since getting RV's with 30 pound tank, I started carrying an extra (3rd) thirty pound tank for a reserve in the event I run out, I can simply switch one out for the reserve tank.

I have found the "reserve" tank works just as well as those 1 pound tanks, and the 20 or 30 pound tanks are refillable.

All you need is hose attachment, sold almost everywhere: like this one.

And if you have multiple devices you want to run on propane, like more than one griddle, campstove, or lantern, then you can always add a propane tree: Like here.

One 20 or 30 pound tank will last you for years before needing a refil.
