Single 45kg gas bottle users
If you don't use a lot of LPG, you may only have one gas bottle on your property. You'll need to take care to order gas in a timely manner to ensure you don't go without. We recommend single-bottle owners pay special attention to usage by marking the dates of your LPG orders on a calendar so you can estimate when your next order will fall due.
You can also check how much gas is left in your bottle by using the hot water test. Carefully pour hot water down the side of the cylinder while one of your gas appliances is in use. After a few moments, run your hand down it. It will feel cool to the touch at the level of the gas.
Aim to order when your gas is running low – not when it's completely gone. This will allow time for delivery.
