    Hi all, can anyone tell me what size the gas bottles are in a 2005 Autotrail scout, the van I've bought only has 1 bottle fitted and I want to get another bottle sorted before fetching the van in 2 weeks time.

    thanks. peter :Smile:

    ask at your local council resource centre....used to be known as the rubbish tip.....if they have any bottles.

    my last one cost a couple of quid for their coffee fund.

    avoid hiring one from Calor......partial refundable :Rofl1: deposit required and you wont get it refunded without the hire contract document.

    a calor 13kg propane bottle, inc gas, will cost £59.74 to hire

    also try car boot sales/sunday markets/local newspaper classifieds

    try a flo gas depot .no deposit on 13kg and bigger at our local depot . and cheaper than calor . not worth filling your own at their price .

    FLOGAS, no problem......

    just look on the roadside where Gypsies have de-camped.....dozens of empty flogas bottles in the hedge bottom. :Laughing:
