It can be easily refilled. You need to remove the gauge and on the back side will be a plug with sticker warning you of all these nasty things if you should remove it. Go ahead and remove it. Now you need some glycerin from a local drug store. It's used as a hand lotion. Go ahead and fill 'er up. That's all there is too it.

The liquid is a highly toxic chemical acid that if touched, will cause a vicious flesh eating virus and cause all wildlife within 10 miles to suddenly attack humanity.
