    1. All flammable compressed gases are prohibited* e.g. blowlamps; butane; lighters and refills containing flammable liquid or gas; ethane; gas cylinders for camping stoves; hydrogen; methane and propane.

    *includes new, used and empty gas cylinders

    International – Not allowed in the mail

    Maybe Amazon uses a special carrier for gas canisters? I think they would have to.

    I do know from personal experience that shops buying boxes of canisters have to use special packing and a special carrier. As far as I know, these are agreed international regulations. YMMV

    Cheers
