The nozzle on the can is a mismatch to my little burner.  It is too fat to fit in the hole.

Are you sure?  Could you please post pictures....?

These things should be fairly universal.  I have 3 different types of butane burners and the fat cans work with all of them.  The metal nozzle of the can fits against the metal tube of the burner, and both must then be depressed to open the valves and allow the gas to flow.

Hi Jerry,

Great on the sale price of the butane gas! On the top of the lid on the butane gas can, there's a black nozzle that will fit & work. I just tried it out to make sure for you. {;-)

Cheers!

If worse came to worst, you could go to a cigar/smoking shop & get a can of butane gas like this one. It has 8 adapter nozzles/fittings.

Craig, my cans are called 'MEGA  1 Butane Gas', have a red top but none of them have such a black nozzle.  The outlet nozzle of the can is just a bit to big in diameter to enter the fitting on the bottom of the burner so the burner valve will never open to allow filling.  

Maybe I need to pay a visit to your market.  That would give me a lifetime supply ...!?

Jon, The nozzle on my can won't enter the burner hole far enough to engage the little tube (to open the burner valve).  

To test the burner (and it works fine) I bought a 30 ml can of lighter butane for $5.50 (sigh) but threw out the empty can.  I now wonder if that smaller nozzle would have worked with the fat can to let me decant the butane into the empty little can and transfer it to the burner.

I have some also with the small red top & that's why I bought the ones with the black top as the black plastic adapter fitting is moulded into it & just snaps off for use on all types of butane cans.
No need for you to come out my way Jerry to the Fresh Value market, unless of course you want to check it out though. If you shoot me an email with your address I'll mail the adapter off to you today or on Monday. {;-)

Craig, I tried to email you my address (your Public email address) - deletethis. ...and had the email refused by the server.

Have you changed your address lately?

Jerry, the "deletethis" part has to be physically removed., as that part functions as a Spam trap & makes it unusable to spam bots/email harvesters..

You can also directly click on the email button at the bottom of my/a post too (nothing to take out). {;-)



P.S. Sorry my mistake, I forgot that you'll not see this., as only logged in moderators, Mark P & Wayne V can see them.

For what it's worth, UPS will ship propane/butane cannister fuel, the US post office will not (HAZ MAT regs).

Each brand/size cannister is tested by UPS. Some pass and some don't. A fee of $25 dollars will or will not be applied to each shipment.

List of cannisters and current UPS HAZMAT status.


I use MSR 4 ounce fuel cannisters in my little coffee syphon heater, bought from the store in the link above, no extra shipping fees charged.

=> These take an adapter, made by Brunton. One end screws on to standard backpack stove fuel canisters, the other end fits cigarette lighter valves like the one on my heater for syphons.

Brunton adaptor:

Or maybe I'm off topic here?

Amazon partner sellers have fuel cannisters and the Brunton adaptor too.
EDIT: The Brunton adaptor will fit the standard backpack size fuel canisters, but will NOT fit large camping stove propane cannisters, like for a Coleman camping stove.
