As people seem to want a small bottle, why not get a 907 or a 904 Camping Gaz bottle, a screw in regulator will be required, but they're around the same size as a 4.5 and can be bought all over Europe which makes them a much better option for travelling or small scale use.
There are people that fill their own cylinders and I've seen more than my share of those same people with burns, I won't say how it's done as it's dangerous.

Cost, Camping GAZ is way more money. No idea why.

This is a bit of a PITA as the gas locker on my narrowboat will only take the small bottles. I have no doubt that some enterprising folk will start refilling them though as nature abhors a vacuum.

My friends are literally in the same boat, those in the future don't fit.

Flogas still do the 3.9 and 4.5 bottles

Together Forever

Lonely days are long
Twilight sings a song
All the happiness that used to be

Soon my eyes will close
Soon I'll find repose
And in dreams, you're always near to me

I'll see you in my dreams
And then I'll hold you in my dreams

Knowing SFA on the this issue could you enlighten me on the difference with heat/burn time for propane as against Butane. I did notice that the Butane size in the deleted list was always larger. Is it just about the equipment fitted or are they often multi-fuel?

As an aside, surely handling "lighter" containers will have a lower chance for injury?
