    Bulk LPG - Cheapest suppliers / supply route?

    Bulk LPG - Cheapest suppliers / supply route? 29th Jun 08 at 4:46 PM
    Hi all,

    Moved into a house in Jan that has a bulk LPG tank, which was previously supplied (and the tank is owned by) Calor. The contract they were really keen for me to sign was quite a restrictive lock in one and after speaking and a bit of negotiating they dropped the standing charge and discounted the pence per litre by 12%. This only made me sceptical that they had a lot of fat in the price anyway and there seems to be limited information available on the net about bulk lpg supply (lots of websites that will find you the cheapest supply for a fee!). Seems to be crying out for a MSE article if there are enough bulk lpg owners out there.

    Anyway, i read that there is some sort of regulation coming into the market which allows me to choose the supplier i wish and in turn they buy the tank off the previous owners. This seems to be a more market competitive way of doing it, but i can't find out when this is due to happen.

    Are there any bulk lpg owners out there that can give me some advice?

    TIA

    Totally agree. Sadly the LPG sector does not benefit from a regulator so all suppliers will try it on. It's high time the Government stepped in...

    Woldlink pricing june 2019
    ]Good news, Woldlink have advised June pricing at 27.89ppl + 5% VAT for those on monthly pricing schedule. This is down over 3ppl from May level. This is in stark contrast to the petrol/diesel pricing levels recently.

    Indeed, very good news. That probably makes LPG nearly as cheap to run as mains gas, and certainly cheaper than oil.

    Our Asda store recently dropped the drice of diesel by 3ppl. Petrol was reduced too, but not sure by how much.

    Other local supermarkets were forced to follow suit.
