This stuff doesn't have butane - that besides staining your WTC, also seems to corrode other parts it is exposed to.

I have had the best luck getting it from Circuit Specialists in Arizona.

These are the folks that Mike Dory referred me to. I once tried to buy a case from an outfit in New Jersey and it was a nightmare!

Also make SURE you order the refills, not the ones that come equipped with plastic triggers. Those won't work.

The correct item will say "For use with M.G. Chemicals Cat# 402-T Chrome Plated Trigger Valve". THAT is the one to get. You can just click on the link below and go right to the correct page on their ecommerce site.


PS - one more thing - be sure to order early. They don't have a huge stock of this stuff so don't wait a week before a regatta and expect to order a case ($5.15 per can in case lots vs $5.50 ea per single unit) to order!

I simply cut of the end of the tube from a bottle of Fix a Flat. Went to Pep Boys and got a chuck? that has a spring loaded handle you add air to tires with. Put it on the end of the Fix o Flat hose. Just pop off the Super Duster cap and place the new one on. Now I can just walk into just about any store, Walmart,Best Buy ect and pick up a few cans of Super Duster.The plastic one that comes on the Fix o Flat can is plastic and works but wears out. Thus the metal one. Just a suggestion that makes getting air easier and avoid running out and having to order.
