Seems to be an exceptional price for a BBQ gas refill. Usual In-store price is £32.99 for a 10kg refill bottle. I Purchased a 10kg refill Gaslight Propane bottle for the BBQ today and was only charged £22.79 at the checkout, which is about a 31% discount, which is more than the 15% advertised off everything in there discount weekend. Happy days!

I assume by 'refill' you mean you have to take the same type of bottle instore first? How much if you don't have a bottle?
Thanks.

Yes you do have to return the same type of empty gas cylinder first. To buy your first bottle of gas without a return empty cylinder exchange is £67.99. I've had my bottle for five years and this is my first refill. Still a fantastic saving of £10.20 this weekend on there standard price.

Got to love the comment in the description, "Propane freezes at a much lower temperature the Butane so it is ideal for barbecuing all year round.", that's -188 degrees C vs -140 degrees C, so your going to be fine if you hold your winter barbecues in the Arctic.

Propane also burns in air, around 400 degrees C higher temperature, so you can look forward to even more burnt outside, raw inside chicken than before (_;)

It really does matter, butane doesn't work well at low temps, even UK winters.

Grr paid 32 last weekend, tempted to vote cold as sour grapes but must concede it's a good deal

Top tip.....Calor like all of them, charges a fee to start with, check your local tip see if they have an empty bottle there, then you can just Pay the "refill".

Oh and by the way don't use B&Q for calor.....they charge 35 quid golf a 13 kg patio.....Calors RRP is 29 quid!!!!!

Another hint....look on gumtree etc get a bottle in the same group and get the refill to patio gas see http://www.calor.co.uk/help-and-advice/customer-services/cylinder-exchange-policy for more info.......

Most tips won't let you remove anything from them.

Also, gasdeal don't charge for the first bottle on a lot of their sizes.

If you already have a Gaslight Propane bottle like me this deal is cheap with the extra discount this weekend at Homebase. Buying an exchange bottle out of promotion is just wasting your money away, that's why it's worked out a good deal. Hopefully I won't be exchanging it again for another refill for another five years.

Got mine, they must be taking the 15% off the new bottle price.

I was referring to the comment, 'it freezes at much lower temperatures', the fact that propane is probably best used in cold conditions has absolutely nothing to do with freezing point, it has everything to do with a -42 vs -1 degrees C boiling point.

But worth remembering propane has around 25% more energy per unit volume of gas, so using the correct regulator, you should find butane lasts longer.

The rule of thumb used to be barbecue below 10 degrees C, use propane, above then butane is usually better.

Another tip - Check ebay out. Bought a patio gas bottle off there recently 3/4 full for £20.

That is a bottle and approx 10kg of Gas for £20.........
