    Has anyone got a completely empty Calor lightweight 6kg propane tank? I'm not after one (have two fitted) but I am looking for the empty tank weight.
    I measure our usage by weight - new collected mine weighed 10.48kg. Theoretically if the full tank weighs 10.48kg and the stated gas weight is 6kg, then the empty tank should be 4.48kg.

    All I'm trying to do is ensure I'm right here.

    If anyone has an empty one, could you weigh it and let me know please.

    Regards,

    Trikeman. :winky:
