A very good case in point here Oz.
BBQ bottles are filled neither by weight *or* litre, but buy whatever the
servo attendant thinks is "full", and that can vary quite a bit depending on
how busy he is at the time. Either way, you pay a set fee for a varying
I use quite a bit of LPG around the home, for garage heating, the BBQ,
soldering and what have you. I have half a dozen 9kg bottles, and I fill
them myself from the 100 litre "plumbers" bottle I fill at the local autogas
bowser in the back of my ute.
Costs around 32 bucks to do it that way, compared to 150 bucks to have 45kg
of gas put in it at the proper refil station or have the truck come out and

You can have them filled on site as I said, but they charge you for the 45kg
fill, not the amount of litres that goes into the bottle. They also charge
you for "domestic Gas" at the kilogram rate rather than the regular "lpg"
litre rate, and on their scale that works out to around a buck fifty per
I have a small forklift, and have no trouble lifting the bottle in & out of
my ute to fill it up and 47 cents per litre thanks :)
