I am wondering if anyone living near to us, would like some new Alugas Bottles - we have 3 - one unused, 2 slightly used on a trip back from Germany - no cooking involved, only heating some water...so virtually full.

I live in North Devon

We are moving and we have had a gas tank fitted.

Please contact me if you are interested and can collect.

These are the German lightweight Aluminium ones, costing over £100 each

Pieter here is a picture:

They are the same as that - and as for refillable, I am uncertain, I really don't know, they are expensive to purchase and as we have never used them abroad I don't know if they are refillable, perhaps someone else knows.

Here is a link to their site with more information.

Pieter - I found this link to a forum as well, which may be of interest.

Hi Carol

From my recollection, Alugas made both types of cylinder, one with an 80% cut-out valve and one without. Only the one WITH the valve would be considered to be suitable for user-refilling by the LPG Association. I'm pretty certain that the ones with the cut-off valve have an additional connection point for the refill hose (separate to the take-off point) so look if your cylinders have this additional filling connector to determine if they have the cut-off valve. The one in the photo appears to me not to have the cut-off valve.

Do you mean my photos at the beginning.... or do I need to take another closer to the top?

Carol

Just realised they aren't in this post - they were in the classifieds before the rally - so will add again

Alugas

We currently import the 11kg alugas alloy bottle refillable for motorhome use and it does have the two connections on the top.
One connection is the vapour offtake while the other connection is used for filling. The fill valve does include an 80% fill stop valve and can be made to fill remotely with the use of a filler hose and external fill point

Further details here so that you can see the difference on the top of the bottle

The Alugas bottle you have is not refillable with ease so you may find some difficulty in getting them filled in the UK but anyone wishing to travel to Germany they would make a good investment.

If I can help any further please feel free to PM me.

Regards
