    You should ask them why some customers in the E Midlands are paying £10 less maybe?
    Boycott the right wing press !

    We buy our 47Kg bottles from the owner of the caravan site where our static caravan is sited, currently paying £65 a bottle. You can get them cheaper by searching around the area but then it's the problem of loading the empty bottle into the car and then replacing with the full bottle etc.

    I'm in Nottingham and my Flogas online account shows 47Kg cylinders are £54.97 inc. VAT delivered. Is your price from Flogas or a Flogas reseller?

    Fewkeste,

    We get it direct form Flogas. Spoke to them yesterday as we have fount it cheaper from Energas at £54.60 in VAT and delivered.

    We told Flogas and they said they can’t sell it that cheap as Flogas wouldnt make any money on it. The best they can do is knock £5.00 off a bottle bringing it down to are £61 :(

    Which we know is totally crap! A big company like that can match the price of a small local supplier?

    Flogas are talking nonsense as they are already offering that price to me. Maybe the price depends on your usage (or anticipated usage.) I use 5 or 6 cylinders per year but get them from Calor at present as they are cheaper at the moment at £52.90 inc. VAT.

    I order 5 at a time to spread the £5 delivery charge. Even sharing the delivery charge over 5 cylinders it makes Calor £53.90 each - still cheaper than the Flogas £54.97 price.

    How many cylinders a year will you use?

    Last year we use 12 cyclinders :(

    Down to a rubbish boiler! So you can imagine how much its cost us per year. We are fighting a losing battle at the mintue.

    Trying to live with a faulty boiler that is guzzling gas.

    During colder months its around 1/1.5 bottles every 6/7 days!
