    If you're buying 47kg LPG bottle refills (the really big ones) for £80-ish then LPG is cheaper than mains electricity.
    For 13kg bottles, it will depend on your supplier but at Calor's list price of £50-ish gas or electric are pretty similar prices, but an electric kettle is more efficient.
    The smaller 6kg bottles are generally more expensive than electricity.
