My dad used to do it for a couple of winters, and I considered trying to refill -- but decided not worth the headache. (I hate the smell of the gas, it gives me a headache) Instead I just switched back to white gas lanterns and am more than pleased with the results. Slightly off-topic, I use 3 lanterns when 3 of us go ice fishing and they keep the canvas house warm all the way down to 10 deg f with the bonus of plenty of light. Canoe camping I might take one, and backpacking I use the miniature stove canisters and campfires.
For a propane ice house heater I like the smaller refillable white tanks.
I just don't see much use for those green canisters except for my propane torch - heavy, expensive if used much, and I have to pay an additional $2.00 or drive 45 minutes one-way to dispose of them.
FB4K - Every October we wrench on donated bikes. Every December, a few thousand kids get bikes for Christmas. For many, it is their first bike, ever. Every bike, new and used, was donated, built, cleaned and repaired. Check us out on FaceBook: FB4K.
Disclaimer: 99% of what I know about cycling I learned on BF. That would make, ummm, 1% experience. And a lot of posts.
