I have been unable to buy a 6kg bottle for my Amethyst, I recently purchased. Just managing with a small 3kg one
Has anyone a surplus bottle? Located in NE Hampshire.

If it is a calor bottle you should be able to exchange it  at a calor dealer for one in the same category (6kg is in the same category as 3kg).

That's the problem, they will only exchange them, like for like at the moment. Wellsy wants to buy one, even dealers can't get them to give with vans they sell.

Our motorhome storage depot has recently started offering gas bottles at their shop. I don't know if it's exchange only or whether they would sell you one. They're in Oxfordshire, so not too far from Hampshire. 

Contact them on 01993 841523 and speak to Celia.

Thanks for your replies everyone. Have now sourced a couple of butane bottles that I can exchange for propane.

Gas man at the Lincoln show had plenty for sale.

I have 2 blue for use when going away, and one flo-gas one for use at home/local. No deposit on the flo-gas ones. Actually get it delivered to the door by the coalman!
