Coleman cans

Produce the greatest number of valve issues with the AI adapter though..

There seems to be some issues with their valve that can cause it to stick open. This is an issue with the CAN not the adaptor.

I've never had this issue with other brands though

( we go through a lot of propane at TTAC3... and we have worn out I don't know how many Adaptors ... So may in fact the we are the defacto test site for AI adaptors )

I believe MadMax was offering a tool (Free) to check if the tank's valve would accomadte the adapter properly. I just went to CT and was playing with all of the tanks and all of them were perfectly compatible (Prior to buying).

I've never had my valve stick open.

but then you likely don't go through 100 cans of propane in a year either

I dunno about you, but I love that smell.

It's so 'manly', if you will.

MadMax should come up with some scented silicone oil (no, not th sexy kind).

And I still have a can of oldschool Green I used for home shooting. My living space is too small to have it stinking of propane.
i can attest to that. in chem this year i got a bunch of that on my hands, god is it difficult to wash, i ended up having to douse my hands in hydrochloric acid 7 times in order to get the smell out (with a rinse repeat in between each to prevent my skin from corroding).

To defeat the smelliest stuff on Earth with another smell, I would have to come up with a smellier thing. I don't really want to be embroiled in a stench arms race.

The least stinky propane I've found is RiverTrail branded propane in a can similar to a Coleman can. Try your Home Hardware. I'm not sure if their bottler may have changed their odourant though. Coleman used to be the least odourifous, but that changed a few years ago.

HCl to wash your hands?! The molecule looks like a little doggy. Maybe it can be coaxed away with a piece of liver. Can it be solvated in something less nasty like Varsol or ethanol?

Mastercraft propane is the least ranky. It doesn't linger too long either.

I just bought a 3 pack of coleman, and the smell is pretty narsty.

it was what was on hand. also aslong as it diddent start corroding the skin, it wouldent hurt. so in my mind it worked just fine.
