You can get it filled in Ajijic. It's across the street from Plaza Bouganvillas. Make a slight right across from the Tianguis Street.

Do you folks above use the 20lb tank on an indoor heater?  I keep reading on all the instructions, and the Mr. Heater I just bought, not to use these 20lb tanks indoors ("May cause fires or explosions").  Are they safe to use indoors?  Is there anything special I should be aware of?

If they are gas they are safe indoors, all our houses are not air tight, like up north. I use mine in a bathroom with no problems. Juan our gas guy finally came and filled us up, enjoying our big one on the patio right now.

So don't sit really close to the heating element/grate - you will definitely get burnt (that goes for cat and dog tails too); don't wear nylon or polyester near it; remember to shut the valve off; don't let it run all night unattended.  Simple, common sense stuff.

Make sure you buy catalytic type gas heaters.  These are the only type safe to use indoors without an open door or window.  I have three and they have never set off my C0 detectors. They take about five minutes to warm up and become efficient.  I have had no problems in 15 years of use. Use common sense.  These are not made to be used unattended or in too small an area.  I live in a tight 8 year old house with modern windows that seal and no problem.  Yes they are not legal in US but they are legal here.
