3197921.jpgI paid closer to 60 quid a bottle last time, seems Flogas are trying to scrape some more customers together.

My depot is in West Glamorgan, but I guess this is a nationwide push by them.

Contact you local depot and see if they will do a deal.

Cheers.

We use a lot of Propane in our touring caravan because we never have electric hook up and also for heating our conservatory in the winter and have bought a customer refillable cylinder that can be refilled in the likes of Morrisons petrol stations and independent lpg suppliers at around 52p a Litre = £1 Kilo in weight.
It costs a fraction of what rip-off Calor / Flogas charge for refills of their smaller bottles and our refillable bottle has paid for itself within 3 months of use.

This Flogas 10KG bottle costs £44.09 to refill.

It costs me approximately £10.50 to refill the exact same size bottle (the centre bottle below) with road fuel duty paid LPG Propane
Also remember Flogas / Calor buy their LPG without road fuel duty so they are making an absolute fortune on each bottle sold.

Hang on, didn't you return 4 bottles? Looking at gas deal you'd have paid 79.90 instead of 99.98 for those 2 containers had you returned 4 canisters?
47 Kg cylinder £97.80 in Northern Ireland.. Usual rip off !!!

Impossible to say how long because there's too many variables but anyhow mains supply will be much cheaper.

Are you sure a litre of propane weighs 1 KG?

No I said 52p a Litre = £1 Kilo in weight, so 2 Litres equals approximately a Kilo hence the £1 cost @ 52p a Litre.

Do you need anything else for it? Or is it simply a case of buy the 10kg one and when it needs refilling just pop to a local petrol station that does lpg and attach it to the bottle and go?
Does the 10kg bottle fit in the standard 6kg size holders that you typically get in the front storage of the caravan?
Much appreciated.

Not quite, The Green Flogas bottle is NOT refillable by yourself because you only rent it and does not have the proper fittings on the top for the LPG pumps to attach.
The bottle I bought is the Red one in the photo below and is identical to the Flogas bottle and made by the same company (Regasco) but It is fully owned by myself and has the proper LPG pump fitting on the top to allow forecourt filling.
It also has a safety device built into the valve so you cant overfill it past the recommended 80% because gas expands with heat in the summer.

Cheers. I'm looking for a safefill type then that I can refill myself. I tend to have 2 6kg propane in the caravan but use the spare in my workshop for propane gas torch (silversmith) then just replace as needed but safefill would be ideal.

Nothing else needed the regulator attaches just like on a normal bottle.
My 10KG bottle fits into the front locker of my Lunar caravan I just needed to buy a longer securing strap to tie it securely.
Take a look at Safefill gas bottles on youtube for more info.

Your usage sounds very similar to mine, the other advantage of refillables is you no longer need two gas bottles in your locker because you can top up a part empty bottle whenever you want plus the bottle is semi translucent so if you shine a torch light into the side you can see the level.

Another massive advantage is these are very lightweight compared with steel bottles but can handle much more pressure than steel bottles can.

I bought mine from ebay but the UK seller is safefill.co.uk/ unfortunately they're out of stock at the moment I think because of high demand.

Excellent post!
Fair pricing on the refillable gas (if my calcs are correct), I know natural gas is lot cheaper but compared to heating with Electricity

1 Litre of Propane = 7 KWh (rounded) so at 52p litre thats around 7.43 pence per Kwh
Do they come with accessories?
Which one is better ? safe fill or flo gas the green one ?

On check out safe fill is £182 ? But I don’t get why flo gas charge you additional 40+ if I don’t have a gas tank to send to them ? :/ I’m well confused
