I just dug out the directions.
To charge, unscrew and take off the fiber handle.
Fill the tube with gasoline.
Screw on the filling cap tightly and replace the fiber handle.

Stand iron on end and fill the priming cup full of denatured alcohol or gasoline and light. When it is burned out, immediately open valve and touch lighted match to large holes under copper point. The vapor in the tube will ignight causing a strong hissing noise which indicates the iron is burning well.

WOW! Sounds like a finger burner.

After seeing the directions, I'll stand by my earlier post.

When everything is working right, and you do it right, they're probably fine. But what if you let the primer cup and tube get too cool, while you try to get your old Zippo lighter to work, and you get liquid gas instead of vapor out the tube? Bigggggg problem. . .

Petrogen gasoline cutting torches claim they are safe because if they get a leak it will be liquid gasoline and not vapor. The vapor burns, not the liquid.
