As at 10/10/17, Caltex Woolworths own website advertised swap gas prices as follows:
Note: A 3.75 kg swap gas bottle is $24.00
According to Caltex Woolworths own website, the above prices apply at 500+ “Caltex Woolworths” branded service stations.
Two facts are absolutely clear … those prices do not apply to “Caltex Star Mart” or “Caltex Starshop” branded fuel outlets. At those outlets, prices are hugely higher … not $27.00, but a whopping $39.95! A massive $12.95 extra!
Our advice is to ALWAYS ask the price before handing your gas bottle to an attendant. If driving any distance, always ring the seller first. It is very frustrating to find the seller is a) out of gas, or b) our price is out of date.
Remember, all the data appearing in our database is provided by volunteers. We check the details by phone and show the check date and informants name. However, we cannot be held responsible if the prices increase after the check date
Also, bear this final point in mind … make sure the swap gas bottle you receive is less than ten years old. Then you can always take it to a REFILL outlet if you wish and have it refilled. With metal gas bottles, there is no such thing as a SWAP ONLY bottle.
