    I have a BLUE Butane Calor which I would part with But I am over near the East Coast.? I am not sure if they will swap a Butane for Propane these days? even if the same size?

    Might be worth having a word with your calor retailer as they sometimes take a 'Not like for Like' in empty cylinders. I managed to trade in a blue(butane) 7kg for a Red(propane) 6kg at a local dealership last year,
    Tried our local recycling centre first but got the Jobsworth reply!

    I've got an empty red 13Kg Calor propane bottle and I'm about an hour's drive from Preston. Nothing wrong with it, just redundant after we fitted the Gaslow.

    Yours for a fiver if you can collect.

    If you'd like the gas bottle you can e-mail me via the Contact page on the first link in my signature below. I'm happy to take it to the nearest M6 service area to my home, North or Southbound.

    I was looking in same area about 12 months back. No joy at council tips. All cctv so lads couldn't let me have one.
    Still worth a try though.
    I swapped 6kg for 13kg at local supplier.

    Depends on the agent, some will some won't.
    I just exchanged a green calor patio gas for a regular red 13kg propane at the local farmers store.

    I think it depends on the retailer. Like I said I swapped 6 for 13. Was told 6kg were in short supply at the time.

    I need to swap one of our 13kg for a 6kg. This MH won't quite fit the 2 big ones.

    Go outdoors said they are the same group providing we dont want the Lite version.

    Am I right in thinking, that the "lite" versions Cost more (per kg) to refill / exchange?
