Camping gaz

Postby Katierick » 29 May 2018, 19:57

I recently went to replace my empty camping gaz bottle (recently bought my first ever T25!) and was totally shocked at the price of £35 :|
Is it possible to change the locker to accommodate a larger propane or butane gas bottles please?

Calor gas is cheaper, have a look at those. We have campingaz too.. but if you're only cooking from it, it does last for a long long time

Butane or propane require different regulators and jets for the burners afaik?

Best off asking in the Technical/Campers sub-forum tbh.

You have a locker? Most are in a cupboard inside.

You could go for a refillable underslung LPG tank, 15L (holds 12) and costs about 8 quid to fill.
They aren't cheap (around £500 fitted), so you need to camp a lot to make it financially worthwhile, but it also reclaims valuable storage space and converts the van to propane which works better all year round. Existing appliances will work on a 37mbar regulator, unless it's a westy, which needs German spec 50mbar.
