    Took a look but could not see anything which answered the question. I know this can only be a general guide, but.....

    Two people in Big Gertie - I have a 7KG bottle and use it daily just for the cooker (1 meal on hob, 1 meal in oven) and water heater (dishes and 1 shower session daily). How many days roughly could I expect?

    If I also use the blown air heating, how many days then?
    If I also use the fridge on gas, how many days then?

    Hope I have asked the question clearly!

    Cant give you an exact guide, only usage type. How long is a piece of string?:)
    Our heaviest gas user is the blown air heating, followed by the fridge, water heater, and lastly hob. We tend to plug in a fan heater when on a site with power, after all, your paying through the nose for it.

    I have two 7kg bottles, the only guide I can give you is when I am in Portugal on an aire for a couple of months. Its mainly the fridge and hot water for the shower that uses the gas for me, I do some cooking but not much. I rarely have the heating on. The bottles last about four weeks.
