PostSubject: Camping Gas - Silly Question   Mon Feb 05, 2018 8:43 am

I’m very new to this hence obviously answered question! Where can I buy a refil bottle of camping gas for my late T2? It’s the Blue Butane and I think 15kgs. Does the brand matter for fitting into the compartment. I’m in West London if anyone knows somewhere local. Running out really ruined my first attempt at a cupper!

I'm assuming it's a 907 Bottle. My local BP Garage stocks those and I know Go Outdoor do the refills and believe some Halfords stores do too... If you have any caravan sellers or caravan parks/campsites local to you most will hold the refills in stock..

Hope this helps..

Depending on how soon you need one, you could always buy a spare from eBay? Then you have a spare to swap out when you get near the bottom (however you judge that - I never can!)

Also is it camping gaz or calor gas?

It does seem that there are fewer places stocking the 907 cylinder. However the "Camping Gaz" website does list numerous stockists, and there are plenty of them, but not all will exchange the cylinders. You can get a "GASLOW  2.7 Kg LPG" cylinder which is refillable at any petrol station which supplies LPG" It is much cheaper than Camping Gaz and can be refilled even when the cylinder is not empty so you can be sure you wont run out on site. Unfortunately it will cost over £200 to buy the kit. I keep meaning to weigh my full cylinder so that I can check later if 2.7 Kg has been used yet. Never get round to it though.

Have you checked the bottle out to see which one it is? The 15kg one is pretty big. My T2 has the 4.5 kg blue bottle.

Most camp sites stock 907 and you can get them in most of Europe and the size is good some bottles are very big and take up a lot of space for the amount of gas you will use for cooking I would stick with 907

There are plenty of places that sell them apart from the ones listed on the Campingaz website. Try calling your local caravan dealer. I use one of those portable luggage scales to check the weight before we go on a trip. It's more accurate if you remove the cylinder completely, but just weighing it in situ will give you a reasonable guide.

That`s good advice Voyager, my cylinder was new when i got the van but I've never weighed. Something else to check before spring

That's a good idea. You'd need one which weighs up to 10kg, shallow depth, small enough to go into the gas enclosure but big enough to put the bottle on top. Amazon have got loads of them.
