Re: Butane camp stove in cabin
Propane is a mixed blessing. The small bottles use a simple rubber ball held against the hole by the gas pressure to seal them, and those rubber balls sometimes leak. So yes, they are removeable, but arguably more likely to be leaking.
Almost makes hexamine tablets start to look good. Or at least, safer, huh? (G)
