    Cost of Calor Gas



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    Bought a 15kg Calor gas tank from my local garage for 35 for use indoors, bought a 2.5kg 907 gas bottle from GO OUTDOORS for my campervan cost 40. Anybody got any thoughts about this matter. Personally I think it is outrageous

    camping gaz is well known to be the most expensive way of buying butane, although it is available throughout europe . better to find room for a small calor gas bottle

    Price of camping gaz has always been ludicrous... closely followed by Calor (though convenience is a factor obviously)

    One of the reasons why I did away with gas in the van...
    heating by Diesel from main tank (eberspacher sips it)
    Cooking by inverter OR Coleman cooker running on methanol (130 for 56 gallons)

    flogas is cheaper . plus very often 19kg bottles dont need a deposit.
    or try gasdeal. 19Kg Propane Cylinder - Gasdeal
    look for other gas butane its there on there somewhere.

    It is absolutely scandalous, they have the customer by the short and curlies.
    I changed to Gaslow refillable back about 12 years ago and have saved myself an absolute fortune.

    How Calor are allowed to charge such high prices for a bottle refill is beyond me but is typical of the UK today

    Hi.
    Not sure if this is right but i did hear that Calor Gas have the contract to fill Camping Gaz bottles in the UK, this information was given to me last year and i have no reason to think it isnt correct, once again a touch of the rip off system applied to the leisure industry.
    Chin up lads and lasses pay your money and take your luck.
    Regards Ken

    it's about choice - you don't have to buy any of them. eating cold food, heating food on a woodburner, cooking on open fires, and we've lived like that,but nobody's bending anyone's arm here ,if you want the convenience of clean easy heating and cooking then ,one way or another, it's going to cost you. i keep a small camping gaz in the van for emergencies, and i'll use it quite happily if i have to

    bigger calor bottles are proportionally much cheaper than the smaller ones, I carry a 13kg a (last replacement cost about 25) and a 3.9 kg back up bottle a replacement 3.9kg is more than half the price of the 13Kg.

    I have room for 2 x 13Kg bottles but usually dont in order to save weight calor can be bought almost every where so the small bottle only ever gets used to boil the occasional kettle.



    Who has got room for a 19Kg bottle or wants to carry that weight?
    as for messing around with methanol no thanks!

    We carry 2x13kg Calor at around 25 per bottle last time we brought any, this is almost 1/10th cost of your Gaz.

    "messing around"....

    I'd take filling the tank on the Coleman cooker once in a blue moon (mostly in winter when the sun has run out)
    over carrying butane/propane any day of the week....

    BUT horses for courses....
