My butane lighter doesn't have a window on it to show how much fluid is in it. Can I top it off before I go on a trip or do I have to waste all the fluid and then fill it up?

Is it refillable? If so then you can top it off anytime you like. . It's not like you can overfill them or anything as it's in liquid form.

completely empty a butane lighter before filling

I've never had that problem and I refill butane lighters all the time for work. My lightsticks do have windows in them but I always refill them at 1/2 empty due to the dropping pressure.

Yes it's refillable.

Well, in that case, how would you feel about buying this bridge I own...

Yes you can, but be careful if your refill can is more empty than your lighter the butane will go into the can.

So there is nothing wrong with filling a butane lighter before it's empty?
