It is a silly design, that's true - a lil bit of backing plate would go a long way.

You say most. Not all? Do some checking on the 4L tanks. They are worse than others. I checked all the usual suppliers for 4L tanks and only have them. A post (on another site - didn't want to say it,) got replies suggesting that:-
1. I don't buy a 4L tank from them
2. I don't deal with due to their poor service.

One buyer out of three said that he didn't have a leak.

Also, I did especially mention the lack of service.

Please don't umm... me, more manners please, especially from a moderator.
