Shane,

I'll have a crack.

Cooking gas is supposed to be 100% Propane. LPG (for cars) can a blend of Propane (predominantly) and a blend of Butane, and perhaps some other combustible gases.

I'm of the opinion that if they will happily fuel a modern motor, simply creating a flame to generate heat should be a simple issue and if it will burn, well it will cook your food. A Gas Stove is a pretty crude device, as opposed the modern, injected, internal combustion engine.

Jim.

Shane, out here in country SA the gas tanker fills the Pub & hospital Gas tanks at the same time as the Car Gas station. Works fine in the Hotwater system & Barbacue. Daryl

BINGO, Daryl.
To my surprise thats exactly what I seen on my last trip, the tanker was just finished filling a lpg tank at the service station and then hooked up a small hose to the big camping gas bottle.
when he had finished I asked him how they got to different gases in the same cylinder, (playing dumb often works and not saying what I had just seen) No mate its all the same gas.
So now instead of paying $30 odd dollars to fill the 9kg bottle I will pay about $5.00 and use LPG.

cheers shane.

Hi shane. Can you tell us how to fill a 9kg (or smaller) with LPG. Just paid $10 to have a 2.5kg cylinder filled. Thanks,Bob.

You will pay the same at a servo unless you invent away to connect the car hose to your gas bottle.

Hi Bob, It isnt hard to do. But Im not about to put it up on a public forum. Been shot down on another caravaning Forum for showing how its done. One hint is I use my Gas powered vehicle to do it. On this other Forum they were bitching about the price of re filling gas cylinders, then didnt like the alternative way to get around it. So ive been severly reprimanded for sugesting it. Cheers Daryl
