Many of us own shiny, near-new, high-quality steel bottles. These are bottles that fit nicely into our RV gas locker or caravan bottle brackets.
The idea of swapping them away for the rough (albeit, legal) repainted low-grade steel bottles that some swap-shops offer, certainly does not appeal.
By using this website you will be able to find the best gas deals no matter where you are. Our database has over 3,500 locations listed.
So if you are a bottled gas buyer, you’ll save a motza using this website.
In most Australian States/Territories, legislation decrees that gas bottles must be officially inspected and safety approved every ten years.
Thus a bottle stamped ‘Mar 10’ will be out of date in March 2020. Once empty, it is then illegal to be refilled until inspected by a licenced tester. If he/she finds the bottle to be undamaged, it can be restamped for a further ten years of use.
So, at any ‘swap-site”, always have the sales assistant point out the date on the bottle you are picking up. Don’t accept it if it has less than 13 months of “life”.
Why? Because next time you want to swap, it may be right out of date, and some sellers … not all … charge a fee to swap an out of date bottle.
But whichever type of gas buyer you are, you’re bound to find data of interest on this site.
