    You do need a different regulator though.

    Actually, i could be wrong.
    Flogas uses a POL 105 thread whereas calor use a POL but i cant find any reference to thread number.

    I think I misread POL 105.
    It should be POL 510....a standard POL connector.

    Yep - gasdeal.co.uk have the same offer on. Most popular cylinder sizes are included - 13kg butane for £19.99 delivered for instance - not that many will want butane for their motorhomes at this time of year.

    Gasdeal are FloGas resellers. Most of the time they are the same cylinder price as FloGas, but with free delivery. With the current offer, it's the same deal from both.

    Unfortunately I've got one full cylinder (only delivered about 10 days ago) & one about half full. The Gasdeal offer expires at the end of the month, or earlier if they have sold the amount they have allocated at this price. I'm out on my own this weekend, so won't use so much gas (OH likes it toasty), but if there is any left at the offer price at the end of the month, I'll order one then. They won't deliver it until we are back from the New Forest meet & one cylinder will be near enough empty by then to make it worth losing the last bit.

    Owners of continental vans get the biggest bonus from using FloGas or Gasdeal. Many continental vans will take 2 x 11kg FloGas bottles, but not 2 x 13kg Calor bottles. So they end up with at least one very expensive to refill 6kg bottle. Add in the convenience of free delivery straight to the van & it makes it a good deal even when there isn't an offer on.

    i can take 2 19kg bottles . but usually only 1 x19kg and a cepsa spanish.
    can use the flogas as back up while in spain and the cepsa as back up in uk. ideal.
    if going morocco i take out the flogas and put a moroccan bottle in etc .
    always think its a shame other dont have bigger gas lockers .
    got a 19kg for 27.50 the other day , showed my local flo gas depot the gas deal price and they said as they werent having to deliver they would beat it . i only live half a mile up the road . no probs picking it up.

    I have both calor and flogas and the threads are identical, EXCEPT when you accidentally collect a fork lift cylinder, which are completely different but should have a BLACK top to the cylinder, the one I got did not have one, just red all over

    If your cylinder is red all over it is a normal propane cylinder.
    If you were given an auto gas cylinder that was the fault of the retailer,
    Unless u took an auto gas cylinder in so U did not have a deposit to pay, you minky

    been on the flo gas web site and can,t find the deal/offer? the gasdeal site has the 11kg at £21.98?

    Does anyone have a link to the offer please? Or - do you know if the offer had finished?

    We have the 13kg and a 6 kg calor bottle set up and getting 2 x 11kgs in without having to make any changes to reg would be useful
