Green gas is apparently heavily refined, with good silicone oil pre-added. Unfortunately their canisters are not on par. I find it hard to believe that green gas is worth the 4x plus cost of propane.
What evidence do you have that green gas is "refined"? It's almost certainly the exact same propane and they just don't add the scent, and then also add lubricant.
