This tickled my ear for some reason.

Actually the MAPP gas company closed a decade ago. The yellow bottles you buy now are not much hotter than propane.

Even though they say MAPP I believe they are the generic version, MAPD, which is about 25% hotter than propane IIRC.

From Wikipedia:

"In early 2008, true MAPP gas production ended in North America when production was discontinued at the only remaining plant in North America that still manufactured it. However, many current products labeled "MAPP" are, in fact, MAPP substitutes. These versions are composed almost entirely of propylene with minuscule impurities of propane (<0.5%)."

So off topic.
Google "stuck axle nut". You'll get all kinds of fun entertainment. 10 foot cheater bars. Hours of hammering, etc
