Bio-ethanol fireplace

Went to b&q to find a nice cheap parasol, there was none left so picked up one of these instead

It said RRP £150 but would never pay that much

Not sure how to upload a photo but found a link with the same heater

I found the fuel to be rather expensive, this price should offset that for a while!

I bought something similar in tesco for £6, although it's a bit smaler and the glass is half the size.

Where can you get the fuel from ?

I picked up one of these, but the store had sold out of fuel. No way is it worth anywhere RRP, at 31 quid though it's good value.

5 of these left in Handforth/ stanley green at 9.30 this morning

No...I was in the Fort Kinnaird, Edinburgh store about 3pm and they had lots and lots of these at £31.

There were 4 or 5 in Durham at 0900 this morning in the clearance section.

There were about 20 of these in Portsmouth at 4pm(ish) today. They left them over by all the reduced fireplaces/heaters.

About 7 in the Middlesbrough store last night

There were loads of bargains in the Hull branch today. LED lightbulbs for 50p/£1, really nice marble floor tiles for £2 a box (!!!) And a WiFi ip cam (android, iPhone) for £18

They had about 10 on the shelf at 5pm on the IOW today I if it helps anyone

They had a few at Watford today, if it helps anyone

I bought one at Cribbs this morning

Fuel was a fiver for a 2 litre bottle

Which will get you about 6 hours of use. With an equiv running cost of about 18p per kw/h ever likely they have to virtually give the fires away. In comparison Electricity costs an average of 12p per kw/h, conventional heating oil 7p per kw/h and Gas 4p per kw/h so if you want to use this for anything other than looking nice, you may want to save the £31 and put it towards next Winters' Gas / Electricity bill.

If you really are expecting this to produce enough cheap heat based on its 'Green' fuel, then this is worth reading.

Thanks- its really only going to get used in the garden and not daily so it should work out ok for my needs.

Appreciate you going to the effort of explaining the above, its not something that I had considered

Several at the pontprennau store Cardiff, by the fires with an sel of £159 but scan at £31.

Long shot... but is anyone able to give me the EAN for this item? I'd rather ring B&Q and ask if they have any stock than make a pointless journey

7 in the one on the A40 London at 11:30am today.

just found some in Kings Lynn. Bargain

Isn't bio-ethanol simply denatured alcohol, in other words methylated spirit? Granted it's probably from a bio source and smells less but presumably these heaters are simply meths burners?

I used mine the other day and it gave off the smell of methylated spirits

None in Hedge End yesterday, BTW.
