Has anyone else had issues with propane dealers refusing to fill these tanks? I used to really like these tanks but it seems that they are useless now. Anyone want an overpriced paper-weight?
I am surprised you are experiencing issues with your composite cylinder. The only cylinder that has been recalled by the DOT was manufactured by Lite Cylinders. The Lite cylinders were a two piece cylinder with no liner. They had a few safety issues.
The composite cylinders produced by Ragasco have a perfect safety record. You did not mention what brand you own. If you have a Lite cylinder you indeed have a paper weight.
If you have a Ragasco composite LP cylinder you should be good to go.
There will be another composite LP cylinder hitting the US market in June or July of this year. They will be marketed under the name Safe Cylinders and will be available in three sizes, 5lb, 11lb, and 22lb. They are a single piece construction with a single piece PV liner. They are easy to carry, non corrosive, provide viewable fuel levels and very light weight. They will be economical to purchase. Safe Composite Cylinders - An Alternative to Steel Propane Tanks!
If I can help in any way drop an email.
