Does anyone know where to get green gas online? The only airsoft store near me sells green gas cans for 15$ and I shouldn't have to pay that much for a can that lasts only several hundred rounds. If This is in the wrong section, please move it; I am looking for a web deal so this section seemed right.

I could get straight propane and just get an adapter. Would the adapter work the same as the green gas cans, as in press and the mag is filled?

Do you think I should keep it a dry gas or add silicon to the mix? I would be lubing it with white silicone grease for metal parts and silicon oil for o-rings.

Alright so you got me on the straight propane path. I have one of those popane lines from my house going directly to my grill, so if I got one of those refil adaptors could I refil the smaller propane bottles with the line or would I need the compressed liquid propane from a tank?

They're way too cheap to even think about re-filling in my opinion. I think it used to cost me about $4 for two cans. Each can used to last me many months.

I know but If I can just refill it using the line then I can save a few trips to the store and a few dollars better spent on other upgrades.

I am sure the small propane tanks are not made to be refilled. That might not be a wise idea.

Also, if you are filling off the 20 lbs., you should use a regulator I would thing, or risk over-pressurising the mag.

Apparently refilling the small propane tanks is a federal offense? Don't quote me on it, but somewhere somebody told me that the little ones can't be transported after being refilled...

I don't know for sure, just thought I throw a stick in the water.

@Libelle- I would be refilling off of a propane line coming directly from the source through my house that connects to my grill so I don't need the tanks. Thats what I was asking about.

@Fuzzy- I think I heard something like that too so I'll ask my local police department next time I get the chance.

Why is that? It's just adding back liquid propane. Is there something more I'm not understanding?

My propane bottles last me about 3 months before I have buy a new one, so I really don't mind throwing them away cause they last so long.

I asked Hank Hill, and he told me a special regulator is needed to fill a propane cylinder. I fell a sleep in the middle, but there was a bunch of stuff about frost burn and burned houses. I did find a guide to something similar though.

My favourite part: Under no circumstances should anyone ever refill disposable propane cylinders using the following method.
