    Yeah! too pricey, they need to offer an effective but economic alternative.

    maybe not exactly a bargain price, but pretty good value for a remote wireless display option (y)

    @DavidG58 An Autochangeover valve would save those 'Scottish snow moments' much more effectively ;):whistle:

    but only be really good if you then have an internal indicator, I still quite like knowing I still have a full cylinder when ours runs out, presuming I then fill up o_O and park carefully (y)

    Yep,cheap as chips ,and works well..got mine off fleabay £13.95 inc p&p and it does the job .there is a similar item called a gasfuse ,much dearer as its supposed to cut off the gas if you have a major gas leak .doesnt work on small leaks .not worth the extra tenner and the gauge is nowhere near as accurate as the one I have from ebay ..

    the one in the OP has a wireless display inside, useful IMO, I usually only go into gas locker to change the bottle when it runs out, I would swap over if low before it goes dark and starts to snow if I had one of these :)

    Not quite ;) The auto changeover valve goes from Green (1st bottle) to Red when it changes over. So all you really need to do is simply have a quick look at the valve now and then.

    Every one will have their view but I can honestly say that I would NOT be without one (having had it and knowing how convenient it really is).

    I can only equate it to using SilverScreens ............... if you have never used one, you won't understand what all the fuss is about!

    Don't mess around with inaccurate gauges, they are only an approximation :rolleyes:

    We use a very accurate device we put on the hob. If it whistles; we have gas and relax with a nice cup of tea.

    That would not have helped @DavidG58 in Scotland last year tho Jim , he would still have had to go outside in the snow to change cylinders ;)

    Oh! one point I forgot to mention is the GasLow R67 Bottle has gauge fitted on the valve system and from my experience its quite accurate:)
