    On the subject of losing some weight off the MH. I was in Johns Cross today getting a right hand knuckle joint for my awning and they had a display of Gaslow refillable bottles. Picking on of these up they seem a lot lighter than an empty standard Calor bottle. (I didn't make it out of the shop with it:Sad:)

    Does anyone know the weight saving on replacing two 13kg Calor propane with the equivilant Gaslow bottles?

    I thought that the Gaslow ones were around the same weight, however if you really want to save weight then have a look at the BPLite bottles.
    They are so light even when full you can carry one in each hand, you can also see through then to see how much gas is inside. The downside is that they are only 10kg and cost £22.50 to exchange.

    I have an 11 kg Alugas re-fillable cylinder & it is really light compared to the gaslow ones. I think the empty weight is about 6 kgs. I think the Gaslow ones weigh 11 kgs empty.

    Depends on which gaslow cylinder you go for.
    The 11kg option weighs 11.5kg empty and the 6 kg option weighs in at about 6.9kg.

    6kg cylinders hold 11.5 litres of gas (80% capacity)
    11kg cylinders hold 21 litres (80% capacity)

    Hope this helps :Smile:
