49 for 47kg - no doubt cheaper if you shop around!!!

A 47kg bottle holds about 90L of gas.

There one snag with using 47kg bottles, they arent designed for liquid takeoff. the gas literally comes out as gas, boiled off the liquified gas as the pressure drops. For the speed at which an engine uses gas to prevent the cylinder freezing the gas comes out liquified to a water heated vapouriser. Liquid takeoff tanks for forklifts have a dip tube and an arrow indicating which way up the tank can lie on its side so the tube is under the liquid level. You could always mount 47kg bottles upside down cable tied to the a frame

Thought you said Calor Gas.

Look at the specific gravity. This is still over a pound a litre. Take into account the weight of a 47 kg cylinder, which must be 80kg or more and there is a handling problem

Is it worth it???

They only have to be at a slight downward angle - a boat on the plane should do the trick!!!

I did - the 2nd link is for Calor...............

Where are you getting your info? 1kg of gas = 1.985 litres - that works out at 52p!!!

Yes a full cylinder is heavy but I have heaved them into the back of a Defender no probs.

Your right
The man who runs the wake board school here as a Calor Tank he refuels from
he said he could not afford to run the Master Craft on Petrol alone
It is an inboard so dose it still count
