If anybody in Cork needs an empty half sized bottle drop me a PM - I have a couple to spare.

Am heading down soon to Innishannon to get my collection of full and half sized bottles filled (with Propane) for van, BBQ and patio-heater - will let you know what it costs.
Hi dowtchaboy, if you still have a spare half as bottle going would love it, could pick-up any time suits you. cheers dan

Sorry Dan - they are gone. I'll keep an eye out when next at the recycling in Raffeen - they often turn up there (in the cage with all the gas bottles - some of them full!)

Also look out for any blue propane half size bottles as you can swap the at the depots for yellow ones like I did! Now I've got three!

I have two bottles in my van, both are yellow and roughly half the size of normal bottles. Is it a lot cheaper in France to get them filled? Plenty of outlets? Going there in May and reckon i've enough in the tank to do me until then.

If your bottles are the 5KG Butane bottles then you will probably not be able to get them filled abroad.

I was quoted €80 for a new filled cylinder in athlone, just found the 6kg gaslow refillable ones for €108 which make more sense so invest in. Thought it was free delivery too but its free delivery over €100+VAT http://www.gasproducts.ie/acatalog/G...vel_Gauge.html Just enquired to see if they have a direct fill adapter for ireland

Over 100 euro for a gas bottle??? Is this right?? Other people were quoting prices in or around the 20-30 mark earlier in the thread. Am I missing something? My bottles look like the ones in the link but can't understand how they could be so much more expensive than a normal-sized bottle.

Just got on to the local Forge Hill Gas Centre in Cork, they will refill a half bottle with propane for €21.50.

€20-€30 is for a refill and don't expect to get that price on achill island or cahersiveen even if you can find a bottle.

€108 euro is for a new empty refillable gas bottle with integrated safety valve that cuts off filling at 80% and integrated level gauge, you fill it yourself at a car lpg point which works out at 70c - 1.20c per liter depending on where you buy - cheaper than that everywhere else in europe.

To put that in perspective a large campingaz refill (907) costs about €80 new and refills works out €4-€6 per liter of gas depending on what robber you buy it from.

The half size bottle costs minimum €50 new if you don't have an empty - I was quoted €80 - and works out at €1.90 per liter to €2.70 per liter at the refill prices mentioned above.

small absorption fridge - 0.5l/day
2 burner hob 0.4l/hour
smev oven 0.14l/hour
truma water heater 0.22l/hour
small trumatic heater up to 0.5l/hour

Used them before they refill for the shops €21.50 works out at €1.82/liter which is good if you live near there, refillable would be €9.50 - €14 to refill yourself.

Cool, thanks for clearing that up. I can see how the refillable would be useful for heavy gas users but we're not so will stick with the half bottles for now. Filling at LPG at any petrol station is a nice advantage though.

You can get them in kenny's petrol station in Potumna, it's just on the edge of town near the bridge.

Spoke to a calor delivery fella having his lunch in our local petrol station, he said correct charge for 4.5kg butane is about €18 and bottle charge is something like €33.95 so the guy in athlone I was speaking to was pocketing nearly €30 grrr.
