I just paid 118 Euroa for the 47kg one,
                         I did see an add for the 47kg one @ 80 Euro but when i wen to collect, I discovered that it was the next one down and not the biggest one @ 47kgs.
  The 47kg one, was 130euro in 2015.

I had to laugh at Joan Yates on Facecloth, she was moaning like feck cos she just paid 64.15p for one and some other dude was grumbling about the 40 deposit  wackoold some folk just don't know when they're well off  Grin 82.50 including the deposit is still cheaper than I can buy one!!!!!

I spend around 1500 PA for the business on gas for our mobile showers. We now use genuine Calor and in 2017 paid around 42 ins VAT delivered for 47K gas. Previous supplier was non Calor and was about 78 for 47 K bottles. It sure pays to shop around.

Calor has special deals for some industries that can use there products out of the main season.

For instance our local shoot uses them to raise the pheasants.

FYI

I use bulk LPG and pay 37p /Ltr,  1Kg of LPG is 2L so I pay 74p per Kg, so 47 Kg cost me 35 (that's inc VAT at 5%).

I have a 1 Tonne (2000Ltr) tank, the rental (standing charge) is 64 pa.

So if your paying around 50 for a 47Kg bottle that's 15 more per 47Kg than I pay, so you would be better off having a bulk tank if you use more than 4 bottles per year.

Trouble is, they won't give you a domestic tank unless you have central heating or at least guarantee that you'll use far more than '4 bottles a year'. At least not here they won't. I tried this route when we had a gas fridge freezer (47kg every 6 weeks) and was even prepared to fit gas lighting (a moment of madness) but still the local depot wouldn't wear it. My neighbours did manage to 'blag' one right enough but very shortly after, that particular salesman got the sack. I think they've only had one gas fill in almost 3 years  hysteria Well done them I say, but since we ditched the gas fridge freezer we only use 19kg cylinders and not very many of them at that.

We don't use that much really,  refill every second year so 1000L per annum, so 500kg, so equivalent to 11 X 47kg bottles pa.  We've never been required  to give any commitment on usage either.  I guess living where you do does excercise their calculators when it comes to covering delivery costs🏝️😬

Good news at last, and not just for the gas!!

We have an offer for the house which we have verbally accepted so our days at Long Rig are numbered!

Now I can start to seriously look at the plans for the next house which I am really looking forward to !

Watch this space !!
