    I have an 11kg Gaslow bottle and a 6kg Calor bottle as back up in the Gas locker if the Gaslow runs out.

    I want to fit a second 11kg Gaslow bottle alongside the first one and get rid of the Calor bottle.

    My Gaslow bottle is the 'old' type and there seems to be only the new Gaslow R67 bottles available.

    Does anyone know where I can buy one of the 'old' Gaslow bottles?

    Do you have to buy an old one? are they not compatible with each other?

    You don't need to have an 'old' one ... it makes no difference!

    I've just fitted our 'old' Gaslow 11kg bottle alongside a new R67 style 6kg Gaslow bottle to make a twin system in our PVC, the most 'difficult' part (it's not though!) is ensuring you buy the right hoses to fit the outlets on the bottles and remembering which one goes where! :)

    I could have used a new Gas-it bottle instead but I got the small Gaslow one at a stonking price!

    I bought a new gasit 11kg bottle on ebay from someone that decided not to fit one and it cost £85.

    Thanks for the helpful replies.


    I asked about the 'old' bottles because the 'new' bottles seem considerably dearer to buy for no obvious benefit – the 'old' one I have is perfectly adequate for my needs.



    Gas-it bottles appear to be cheaper than the R67 and I'll have a look at them on Ebay and other sites before buying new.

    Gasit, excellent service, you will have a job to find one for less second hand
