    Default Frozen propane tanks and Mr Buddy

    Anybody have some suggestions on keeping their propane tanks from freezing up in the negative temps. I kept the tanks under a heat source as long as possible but was still having some troubles keeping my Mr. Buddy heater lit with the frozen tanks.

    Any innovators out there?

    Were you ice fishing? If so, just drill an extra hole and submerge the tanks, it will keep them right around 32* which is plenty warm for propane.

    Thanks AKmud,

    Yep, I was on the hard water and couldn't get them to spark up. I will have to try the submersion trick sometime.

    Thanks again!

    Pee on it...sounds weird but its worked for me a pile of times with my MSR fuel on cold cold days, or take two prop bottles, put one on top of the heater so it heats untill one gets to cold then switch them out, put the cold one on top and let it warm up and use the warm one and so on...that seems to work best and you don't have to pee on your stuff in front of your friends...
