Unless you know what you are doing, and are very careful and lucky, some very bad things can happen.

Clicky, clicky …..BOOM.

The above is story of what happened when a ‘pro’ was transferring LPG between 2 trucks.

If there is NO LIQUID PROPANE INVOLVED, it IS easy and safe.


Propane inside any storage tank is primarily liquid under pressure. Opening the valve reduces the pressure and allows it to become gaseous.
Also, check your CAPS LOCK. It seems to be malfunctioning.


Mike. Comments are anecdotal or personal opinions, and worth what you paid for them.

A liquid feed from the bottom of the tank is easy. Just attach and open the bleeder valve on the empty cylinder. Same as any propane fill without the pump to make it go faster. Yes wear proper gloves, eye protection and no smoking, sparks or flames within 30'.

The change from liquid to gas is caused by the LPG boiling, not it’s containment or lack thereof.

If it was colder than -42 degrees you could carry it around in a pail like it was water.
