    Wow - at that rate you could save over £60 every time you fill up a twin 11kg Gaslow (or similar) system. It would pay for itself after about 10 fillings.

    Go out doors Norwich is cheaper, we use them when going to Norwich. Got an extra bottle for when we go there.

    I have a separate remote guage for each 11kg cylinder. They are pretty inaccurate. If it reads anything other than full, then its not full. That's about all you can rely on.
