hi there
beware of lpg prices when refilling a gas bottle found my 2kg bottle was empty late yesterday so rang kleenheat $15 for refill 2kg $50 FOR 9KG and she said there was a line up and may not get it done
so rang bcf $8.25 for 2kg
just under $35 for 9kg
took it in and had forgot to look at ex date on bottle it was too old

so purchased new one and had it filled after only a few minutes wait what a difference and a blatant rip-off by the kl/ht mob with their prices
certainly pays to check before you buy
the amusing thing was the women at the kln-heat place totally insisted that the wc figure on the gas bottle weights was water content not
- weight combined-
i told her april fools day was a few days ago but she assured me she new what she was talking about and was adament about her so called knowledge
i said you deduct the ()tw tare weight from the wc figure and that gives you the nett weight of the gas she said no the wc figure is water content
well i asked how long do you think it would take to get your gas stove burning if theres water in the bottle to that extent
she told me i was confused and hung up
i havent stopped - R a l m a o-
so mother do have em!
cheers and have a great easter

Sorry Mazcan but the joke is on you. From this reference below:-

WC - Design water capacity.

BIG difference in gas refill prices, I find that in some country towns it is as expensive to fill a 4kg as it is to fill a 9kg in the city, $25 or more (depends where of course)
That's one reason why I changed my two 4kg bottles on the drawbar to 9kg ones which I get filled in southern Sydney for $17 each and the bloke never checks the date either ! BTW they are in date.

Hi
I get a 9 kg (8.5 kg if you read the label) filled at BCF for under $20.
Then I fill my smaller bottles when needed from the 9 kg, by inverting the 9 kg bottle upside-down, and with a hose, with POL fittings each end, and a Companion or Primus adapter if needed. I also top up my 4kg bottles on the van after a w/e away, so the bottles on the van are always full. This is always done out in the open with NO ignition sources around.
Cheers
Neil
