I no the filling the tank will be cheaper than buying bottles. but can not get my head round how many liters is in a 13 kg bottle ??? anyone know the maths on this ???
    regards George

    That is a very big tank, mine is 35 litres

    How do you get an on board gas tank? And why bottles as well.

    costs the same to fill bottles as tanks .
    but in spain in winter bottles are cheaper than filling tanks . and in morocco well bottles are so cheap you want to fill your camper with them to come home .
