The £7.50 refund does a few things....
It is probably an incentive to get people to return ones stood in sheds empty so calor don't have to make more bottles.
It creates a sales market for part used bottles.
It encourages little scumbags to go round and knick em for a nice little earner.

The original poster on here is very sensibly selling and two empties needing to be exchanged for full ones rather than selling a couple of potential bombs.No risk to whoever buys them so he can have peace of mind knowing whoever gets them is safe.

To avoid theft I suspect that's why they only give a flat £7.50 and only at 50 depots nationwide for most to make a special journey would not cover fuel. Some retail outlets will take spare bottles back but with no refund.

OK, but that doesn't get back to the OP. What are they and have you still got them?

Hi Ryn2dt The blue colour bottles are Butane this can freeze at very low temps the hose connection is different to propane, the red is Propane this works at low temp uselly the chose of all round use you need a spanner to connect the left hand threaded connector, there are other makes and colors but propane is a hotter flame butane may be easier to find as is used more for camping and has more things IE lights cooking rings etc,if for a boat propain would be better bet,you can get larger bottles with propane.John

Thanks John,
That I knew, I'm trying to find out what the OP has for sale and if that is right for my boat. I believe it had butane in the past
Thanks

The only type available in 3.9kg is Propane.
They do different sizes but the two gas types are always different weights/sizes.

Hi. Sorry for delay in my reply. I do have the bottles and they are Blue Butane Calor type. Butane 4.5kg     340mm high by 240mm diameter. Butane is used for heating and cooking.

Cheers - Paul

3.9Kg Propane and 4.5Kg Butane bottles are the same overall physical dimensions. I had a red propane bottle in an open carrier on the stern of my Mayland. It was exposed to the elements for a good few years. The red paint faded and started to flake off revealing blue (Butane colour) underneath!

Indeed, but the valves are entirely different, the fact remains that ALL such cylinders are only leased, they are accounted for on someone's stock list and it is illegal to attempt to sell them.  Given that other things might have been pinched at the same time do you want the hassle.  Yes, there are at least two main suppliers on the Broads but usually agents can help out with exchange between companies but not always. If you don't want butane then getting propane instead is not a problem.  Trying to exchange patio gas cylinders for regular butane/propane one's can be an issue so needs thinking about
