    Hmmm...that looks interesting. Do you know if they use the same connector as Calor does? I'm just considering whether it's worth the £30 for the original cylinder (presumably you can't exchange Calor ones)

    No it doesnt.
    No you cant.
    It uses a clip on regulator as opposed to Calors POL threaded regulator

    Its not just that one, all size cylinders are in the sale, Propane and Butane, 11kg, 6kg, just click on CYLINDERS(y)

    They are normaly quite a bit cheaper than Calor with this sale they even better;)

    But I notice only the 13kg Butane does not require a empty on delivery.:(

    You can generally find an empty flo-gas bottle around any temporary Itinerant encampment.
    They never seem to take them back when empty prefering to simply leave them behind.

    My apologies....i never noticed the bottle in the opening thread is a butane which does have a clip on regulator.
    The propane bottles have a POL fitting.

    They would appear to be the direct sales arm of FloGas. Interesting, because FloGas do sell on-line themselves. Maybe this is at arms length so they don't undercut their dealers under the FloGas brand name.

    Re-fills vary in price between retailers round here they are same price or dearer than Calor, also very limited choice of retailers compared to calor.

    I went to my local Flogas supplier and said I wanted an extra bottle as a spare. He said no problem I don't require an empty exchange. So check with your supplier first.

    it used to be 19kg and above no deposit . thats why i use 19kg flogas .
    looks like they have lowered the free deposit . pappa there wasnt a deposit on the bigger bottles so no need to take them back. but always handy to have around if you need gas.
    flo gas can be almost as good as auto gas .
    i,m lucky have a depot at the end of my road . i could save 2 quid and go to the next village down the a30 at one time to fill with autogas . cost more in diesel.
    flo gas often do a 5 quid off offer as well i get extra bottles then no deposit so its a save every time .

    I got a flogas cylinder included with my motorhome purchase, and my local gas cylinder stockist wouldn't exchange it (Towler & Staines) as they only deal with Calor.
    However, AVG Bradford ended up exchanging my empty Flogas for a full Calor (for a fee for the gas only).
    So bear this in mind that some stockists will only exchange on a like for like basis.

    Here's another gas supplier that took my order (an 11Kgs Propane ) and delivered it to my door for about the same price that you have been quoted.
    Compared to Calor, these are the good guys;
    Bu&&er!!! Having gone on their site it would appear that they are one and the same as Gasdeals. Hey Ho!!! here they are anyway.
