    My initial guess is that those small copper tubes are freezing up.

    Aren't there any garages in JAX that change oil in cars?

    Getting harder and harder to get used oil, too many regulations. I have to pay $4 every time I get an oil change for waste oil disposal. Find a shade tree mechanic or change your own a lot.

    I would try feeding the copper into the 1/2" Tee, all thread nipple between regulator and Tee. The galvanized is an expansion chamber.

    That was.. sort of my thought I'm considering moving up to 3/8.. I suspect the problem has something to do with the OPD, the lines where not cold enough to be freezing . I admit to being a little pissed about the whole issue, I had $12 in the 1/4 inch pie and fittings all the copper and compression fittings was $40, I have 3/8 copper so I can make the fitting change for $10 but still a simple project is getting pricey

    P.S. i've went over this, there really is no such thing as WMO anymore there is just too much regulation. Unless you have an in with a source, and they are worried about giving too much away, because they might get accused of disposing of the oil illegally... WMO is rare, WVO is rarer, as it is valuable and sold for bio-diesel...

    I hate to say, you might have to change the regulator to a 1/4" one. Keep the lines 1/4 all the way to it.

    Or 3/8 if you change the lines.

    That is a 1/4 regulator,
    the issue is that pipe is measured by ID while tube is measured by OD, so 1/4 inch tune is much smaller then 1/4 Pipe. I figured with two inlets, we would get appropriate flow.. seems not

    Is the galvanized 1/2" ?
    Try removing the two long nipples and 90"s first.

    This might be a useless comment [ most of mine are ] but is there an antibackfire valve at the bottle? maybe back pressure is closing it.
