    Taking an empty red 6kg bottle off the van today I've seen stamped/embossed into the neck "Eurogas UKPP90, Mat.B Alfa Portugal.

    This is the same size and shape as our bottles and Calor have their usual white name and weight printed on the front. Would this be a Portugese bottle that Calor have annexed on its return or has JJ magicked up a Calor gas supplier for English tourists? :Smile:
