Three types of bottled gas buyers… which are you?

  1. The bottled gas buyer who uses one or two a year. Always swaps at the nearest servo.
  2. The guy who goes through one a month. But hang the expense… we can afford it.
  3. The CANNY buyer! He knows he can save a motza using this website. And it’s usually WAY CHEAPER THAN SWAPPING anyway!

Why is it smarter to refill?

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.

Now… a word of caution

In most Australian States/Territories,  legislation decrees that gas bottles must be officially inspected and safety approved every ten years.

Thus a bottle stamped ‘Aug 10’ will be out of date in August 2020. Once empty, it is then illegal to be refilled until inspected by a licensed 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 Because next time you want to swap, it may be right out of date, and some sellers … not all … charge a fee to swap an out of date bottle.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.
