Was there ever a time there wasn't a gas shortage?

seems the only thing "google" cant tell you.

lpg price comparisons.

calor gas are a major supplier?
hardly any stock??

so my question,, who do you buy lpg from.
are they reliable?
and how much?
I'm in wroxham area.

I have always got my gas from Boulters. Like most retailers, they have to suffer the same supply issues as others, so reliable most of the time, but not always.

I have always had Calor in the past, but my current boat had Flogas when we got her, so we'll stick with that. I believe Flogas has a depot at Catfield, so maybe a better bet for supplies?

Yes I have an account with calor, but of late they never fulfil the order?
last order,
3x47kg propane, two arrived,
1x3.9kg propane,none?
2x15kg butane one arrived
2x7kg  butane none?
1x 4.5 butane none?

Flogas is going to be getting a call methinks.

anyone used Avanti gas?

We have hedged our bets and we have one Flogas cylinder and one Calor.

Ok we still have the supply issue to contend with but at least we have the time it takes to empty a complete cylinder to find a supplier with stock!

I switched from calor to Avanti.   47kg from calor £72.00,  from Avanti £52.00  never had any problems with Avanti,  also they dio not charge for the bottle hire like Calor do.

We use Energas {Air Liquide group) for our commercial use and have suffered no shortages at all, gas arrives on time and we always get what we order.

@JeremyFisher
your avanti gas 47kg,
does that come from the  garage at sea palling? when I was looking at their site for info I came across this statement.

"Please note, we cannot supply gas cylinders for domestic cooking purposes, only in conjunction with central heating cylinders"

apparently if I sell the food I cook,,, that's perfectly ok.

We use the avanti gas for central heating and cooking.  Never had a query regards the use of it.   Ordered one today  £62.00 delivered.  I also checked the current Calor price - £99.50!  How are they going to know what you use it for?
