The lite bottle have a little guage on them and can be as rare as rocking horse poo so simple supply and demand is my guess, and when Calor controls the supply. .....

Unless you've tried it, you simply won't understand. .....

There has always been a premium of £2 extra on a Calorlite Cylinder and the difference you quote is very big.

 

The current price is £23 I believe.

Was that from the same retailer, still I find gas good value as it seems to last us ages.

 

Price isn't being queried - the price difference is

We swapped to Safefill and to fill a 10kg bottle from empty cost us £14. 50. Refills average at about £9 so quite a saving even if it takes us 2 - 3 years to recoup our outlay.

For many like us - we use 1 maybe 2, 6kg bottles a year so safefill would be huge outlay and long payback period

Ditto. It would take us many years just to break even, and would be less convenient.

If you can, invest in a Safefill. 8. 6 kg. Ours was less than half full on holiday so I decided to top it up. £5. 53! Got to be the way forward if you do a bit of vanning. But it's not just about cost, the convenience factor is massive. No half filled cylinders to start a break with.

Don't think it is all about cost . .

 

I bought mine for other reasons . .

 

Only need to carry 1 bottle,

Carry spare wheel in space previously used by other bottle

refill when convenient at around 1/4 full

No worries about running if abroad (rare these days)

Roughing it . . but in comfort . .

We prefer to keep the 6 kg Calor Gaslite at the moment as a place to refill the Safefill bottle may be inconvenient to too far. Sods Law states that if you get rid of the Gaslite bottle, invariably you will have an issue with refilling the Safefill bottle. :D

Since the Disco runs on LPG I keep an eye on where LPG fill-ups are, so if heading towards a famine area, eg the north of Scotland(If my passport & vaccinations cover me in the future) I can plan my refill
