Do you stock gas and fuel?

Yes, we stock Patio Gas and Bhutane (please note we do not sell the Propane cyclinders shown in the images below). In order to buy Calor Gas you will be asked to pay for a Cylinder Refill Agreement Process for the size of cylinder you require (or one for each size) which legally states that the cylinder always remains the property of Calor Gas. When it’s empty, you can simply exchange it for a pre-filled cylinder within the same category group, and just pay for the gas inside. Details of category groups are below.

If however, you don’t want another cylinder, you can simply return the empty one in good condition and receive a partial refund on the cost of the refill agreement, which is worked out on a sliding scale.
