Many factors make it difficult to get a steady flow from a gas cylinder. Cold weather, high flow rates, or using a tank that is partially drained can all reduce its vapor pressure and stop the flow of gas.
Adding heat to a gas cylinder will increase vapor pressure allows completely emptying a tank and increasing the duration between refills, while providing higher and more consistent flow rates.
