    Our new van has a LPG tank, so we have a 10kg BP Light and 6kg Calor Propane Gas Bottles, both just under half full to dispose of.
    Any ideas where or how we can get rid of them along with all the connectors etc?

    Hi
    Does your local paper have a supliment for sales up to a fixed ammount ? if so try that it's usually free, our local does up to a £100 for a free add. Pete :thumb:

    thanks, Terry and Aba, for suggestions.
    not really sure how much they're worth. always seems to cost an arm and a leg to buy bottles in the first place but don't know what secondhand value they have. anyone got any idea?:Smile:

    well i dont know about the bp one but a 6 kg calor bottle refill is around £20.00
    if you have the rental agreement from calor you can return it to them and get something back although i doubt it will amount to much

    the real problem is you are not allowed to sell the cylinders as they are not yours to sell they still belong to calor and BP so work out the value of gas and sell them at that price.

    gas prices at the moment seem to vary from around 70p per litre to nearly a quid depending on where you are.

    It's about £25 deposit plus gas (regulators vary from £5-) but I have yet to meet anyone who has got it back :BigGrin: Anyone needing a bottle will have to pay deposit plus gas so around 40 quid -I WOULD HAVE HAD THEM FOR SPARES sorry caps :Wink:but it would cost too much in fuel to get them-If you are going up the A1 anytime I am about 6/7 mins off the Barnsley turn off :BigGrin:

    many thanks to all for comments and helpful suggestions. afraid we don't have free ads in our local papers, Peter, so will have to go down one of the other suggested routes.:Smile:
