PHMSA Cautions Against Refilling DOT 39 Cylinders

PHMSA cautions the public to never refill DOT 39 cylinders, such as the 1lb. cylinders used for camping.  While many types of propane cylinders are designed to be refilled, a DOT 39 cylinder of any size is strictly non-refillable.

DOT is committed to ensuring that information is available in appropriate alternative formats to meet the requirements of persons who have a disability. If you require an alternative version of files provided on this page, please contact PHMSA-Accessibility@dot.gov.
