    We have spent the last month at Camping Albuferia and heading home on Sunday, as there are not as many gas stations in Spain as Portugal we decided to fill up our Gaslow.

    How embarrassing 2 .86 euros

    The option is expensive, change the bottle to the four hole type with a proper float gauge, Gaslow, Alugas & Gast-it all do them.

    Or fit a second bottle.

    I take it that the gaslow/gas-it systems have no standard gauge on them then? I presumed they would have!!

    They lie, just like the fresh and grey water gauges do!

    I like the option of having two bottles with an automatic changeover valve.
    Once the first bottle has run out I know I've still got plenty of time to get a refill without having to rely on the notoriously inaccurate gauges

    I have been considering switching to a gas-it system and one of the reason's was I presumed you would always be aware of gas levels. I'm surprised by that!!! (n)

    With gasit which I have now, the way I think it works is it's unrelable until level low. With two bottles why worry. Many manage for years with no gauge at all ....

    I just got my second Gasit cylinder installed next to my primary Gaslow. The gauges on these are seriously bad.
    With 2 though it makes things easier. You just refill after the second one clicks in Like @Robert Clark says :D

    I am much happier now.

    You cheapskate Eddie, if you had paid the extra for the four hole bottles they would have been the same bottles as your old Stako ones.
