SAFEFILL GAS BOTTLES
We’re talking gas now!
Have any of you bought Calor or Camping Gaz recently?
For example, a 13kg propane refill is now £35
The camping Gaz 907 which is about 2kg is £29.99
We have been looking to reduce cost over the last few years as gas has been a major expense. Last year we spent £360 on gas!
We were made aware of a company called Safefill where you buy the bottle, and you can refill it at LPG pumps at petrol stations (note: not all stations allow refilling, but the number is growing).
The bottle has a 10year life expectancy.
A 10kg bottle costs £186. It costs about £10 to fill it each time - a major saving on Calor. We have bought 4 - a special offer on eBay from a company in Somerset tempted us - nearly £40 saving per bottle.
I worked out it will take about 2 years to recover the cost of outlay but the long - term savings outweighs this.
The bottles are also half the weight of Calor so we will be saving on fuel costs as well.
