They work fine but will never completely fill the 1lb bottle. 1/2-2/3 at best.

Best trick I know is get the small bottle as cold as possible before filling.

Never get out of the boat

refill 1#

I have a dozen 1 pound bottles that I collected over the years, and refilled them once so far, in one batch from a 20# tank. This batch will probably last me another year or so, since I only use about 2 per year to run a small stove. I checked the weight of each bottle before and after the fill to see how much was getting in, and the first 3-4 were overfilled. I cooled everything overnight on a -5F night.

I recommend watching a couple Youtube videos to see what's being done. Actually, it is not hard to overfill, and you probably don't want to do that; it will result in droplets of liquid propane sometimes getting through your regulator and causing flares. I ended up flaring off the excess with a torch, but have otherwise been happy with the results.

I'm chilling mine in the deep freeze and generally get them 14oz full.
The tanks I've come across tend to weigh about 1lb, so it's pretty easy to subtract 1lb on a digital scale.
