Changing to Gaslight cylinder
21 August, 2017 16:19
I read in IWN about the deal to change to new lightweight plastic propane cylinders, has anyone done this yet?

I'd find this offer very tempting, the boat is overdue a safety check and I'd prefer the lightweight plastic cylinder. I only use gas for the cooker so usage is fairly low and I can easily organise to replace the cylinder when returning to home.

Hmm.
I wonder how durable the new light cylinders are?

The weight of the current steel ones isnt a major issue?

And if the new light ones get bashed about will they be accepted for refilling?

thought about this

No allowance on existing cylinders - need to buy two new light ones

Cost of new regs, boat and barbq

?? Using propane indoors - ? on some ites

Not worth for avoiding once a year hassle changing bottles

Any other comments

Recently changed our home BBQ and patio heater(already propane) to the gaslight cylinders. Just brought steel empties down to local garden centre and paid the once-off €17.00 surcharge per cylinder.
I like the gaslight ones not so much because of the weigh, but more because you can easily see how much gas is remaining, also they don't leave hard to remove round rusty marks on the patio slabs!!!
