    I did and it weighed 20.6kg but I wanted to know if it was full or not. Contacted Gaslow in the end and was told, as posted by Phill later, should be 23kg. It would seem my cut off valve is over enthusiastic.

    I must just say how good Gaslow are.

    When taking out the tank one of the fitting fell to pieces when I put a spanner on it and not being able to find it on the Gaslow website I rang Gasslow to enquire if I could send them a photo of this part, they agreed. Later in the day, they phoned me back and said they have the part and would send it to me free of charge, as it was obviously faulty.

    Wouldn't it be nice if we had more companies like this in the UK?

    Why do they sell the gas by the litre and market the tanks in kg's ?
