Price of Butane bottle [standard size]

Post by HilarE » August 9th, 2016, 4:20 pm

What's the price of butane bottles at present? I put out an empty with a 20 Euro note and received no change. This has happened before and am a bit suspicious :eek: We don't get through much gas so order refills very infrequently.

The price has just been reduced, but I can't remember to what. Sure it's less than €13, think you've been seen off.

I have contacted Repsol in Mahon, so I'll wait and see if they get back to me! :axe:

I have heard back from Repsol and a cylinder now costs 11.27 Euros, and the delivery driver is going to be spoken to about my purchase.

I have told them I am going to put another empty out next Monday and leave 2.54 Euros!!

Just think if the driver assumes most people are here for a week/fortnight and they probably wouldn't know the cost of a bottle. They leave out more money than necessary rather than not enough so as to be sure a refill is left, as I do, then, if he keeps all the change, then he's onto a nice little earner!!

I do like a bit of justice :toasting:
