You need to turn your 20lb tank upside down so the liquid will flow through. If you have a newer style tank with the saftey shut off it might close off the flow when you turn it upside down. It will be a fairly slow process since it needs a higher pressure in your little tank to force the liquid into your vehicle tank.

OPDs do hold the valve closed when inverted (which is also why they should be transported in the upright position, so the bottle can vent if overpressure occurs).

A cheater to fit the liquid line off a forklift cylinder would do the job if that is an option.
