suddenly without warning notme exclaimed 10/11/2008 105 pm | | 1. is there any reason i shouldnt use a bicycle tire pump on my truck | tires i have one of those floor pumps. you can but why would you want to because i never seem to have 75 cents when i get near an actual air pump and cant find free ones any more. the other more pragmatic reason is because the best time to pump your tires for accurate measurement is when the tires are cold. they sell pumps that plug into the power adapter. | 2. where does one go to get propane tanks filled ive never had a gas | grill in the us and i want to use a smaller tank so the tank exchanges | i see around wont work for me. most places that cater to rv flyingj loves come to mind. be aware many places have a minimum so the small tank will cost about the same as a big tank. i avoid the tank exchange as often the tank you get cant be refilled anywhere but via an exchange depot. bluerhino is espically bad for this i dont think theres an rv place nearby but then again i prolly wont fill it often. small tank small grill lasted nearly a year in oz. one reason i dont want the bigger tank thanks. jmc .
