The number of these small bottles about must be huge, I wonder what they are worth to calor as scrap metal

This is massive. One of the biggest shocks I can think of.

Think you are getting out of your pram with this now Ian as I don't really see this as a big shock, Quite simply use a different size or change supplier

Ouch. Not sure I got out of my pram, just sharing what I heard which it seems is fact
Quite simple, yes can use a bigger cylinder, I take it you you noted my comment about nose weight for carvanners.
Yes can change supplier, I take it you noted my comment on cost of Safefill. Safefill require a safety check at 10 years and I dont think Safefill have a safty check service. Not looked at others

Simple... yes, negative implications, yes.

I hope I have not just talked myself out of help with my alternator if I need it


FWIW I have 2 cylinders in the gas locker of my caravan, 3 almost full 3.9 kg propane and 2 "half" full 4.5kg butane.
We use so little gas it could be 8 - 10 years before we run out of gas and by that time we may be giving up caravanning.

No, the others are in no order, they are just other massive shocks. Nowhere have I said calor beats all others. If I had or could think of one massive shock per year of life, the list would be longer.
