Is it safe to use a slightly rusty butane canister?

+2
−0

I was sorting some old camping equipment at my parents' house and found several butane canisters for a camp stove. One of them has some rust on the metal around the shoulders; it's slightly pitted but seems structurally sound. The plastic cap was on so the connection area is pristine. Is it safe to use?

I didn't think to get a photo, sorry.

So long as it's still holding butane and not deeply pitted you should be fine. I would assume that if it was already cracked through the butane would have already escaped.

They don't seem to be real expensive, so it might not be a bad idea to just get a new one and not worry about it.
