Hmmm, never heard that before! This torch was pretty old, prolly why it leaked all my gas out between uses. A new one should be good for my lifetime...Could be from screwing it & unscrewing it between every cook.
I read where they recommend not taking the nozzle off the tank at all, and that's what I've been doing for 10 years. Never had any problems & they're in my unheated garage all Winter & Summer.
