    Tried exchanging my 6kg propane cylinder today (empty for full) at Towler & Staines in Keighley.
    I was told by the shop assistant that he wouldn't exchange the cylinder and as it was an ALTA GAS cylinder, he wouldn't touch it with a barge pole!
    I explained that the motorhome dealer had given it to me (after much negotiation) and that I had used the less than half contents and asked him where could I exchange it?
    Don't know, was the reply buy if you want a cylinder off me, it will cost £39.99 for the rental plus £21.99 for the gas.
    I left and phoned a company called AVG in Bradford.
    The guy who answered said bring it down son, I'm sure we can sort it and help you out.
    I drove down and he exchanged it for a Calor cylinder and was charged £5 for the exchange and £20 for the gas. Wanting to pay by debit card and his card machine not working, he said drop the money off later on son, you look a trusting soul.
    Half an hour later after visiting a cash machine, I dropped the cash off.
    What a bloody good service!
    So, if you're in that area (and I can only apologise if you are)(and I'm from Bradford so can say that!) AVG are worthy of your hard earned cash.

    Nice one. (y) That's my uncle Sidney you saw. It's not that he's actually from Yorkshire, if he was, you wouldn't have got squat. (y)

    Yes. Sidney has been fined a couple of times for gas bottle theft, but I'm sure that's all in the past now.

    Just phoned him. He remembered you. He says you still owe him for the exchange. You only gave him £20.00
    No problems. I will pay him, and you can give it to me when we meet. (y)(y)
