New Propane bottle problems, Be Aware Please.

For those who own a gas grill or have small enough tanks to exchange at exchange stations.

Meth cooks are getting exchange propane tanks from places like Wal-Mart,

Kroger, etc. and emptying them of the propane. Then, they are filling them

with anhydrous ammonia (which they now have a recipe for by the way). After

they are finished with them, they return them to the store. They are then

refilled with propane and sent back for you and me to buy. Anhydrous

ammonia is very corrosive and weakens the structure of the tank. It can be

very dangerous when mixed with propane and hooked up to our grills, etc.

You should inspect the propane tank for any blue or greenish residue around

the valve areas. If it is present, refuse to purchase that one.

You should check out the following website for more details. They also have

pictures you can show.

Happy RVing and be safe.
