New reply from Graham & Helen Dingley

<p>Hi Angus</p>
<p>we run with Camping Gaz and red Butane. Cheeky came with Camping Gaz but it is more expensive so have a Butane as the main supply and fitted a quick release valve to swap between the two.  </p>

Calor gas supply issues

<p>We have supply issues with Calor Gas 4.5kg Butane (Blue cylinder) again this year, I know it not just here.  I do not intent to debate the reason for this here, but happy to read comments. Its a pain but we have a couple of full cylinders so fine for a while. Our local supplier has suggested that a change to Butane  (red cylinders) should improve availability, the other possibility is to go to Camping Gaz (but I moved away from them since very expensive. My question is: has anyone changed to butane, I will need a new regulator, but hopefully the cooker (EON? cannot remember the make) will be fine. The advantage is that, living in and winter sailing inn Scotland the lower boiling point is an advantage:-)</p>
