Need Gas? Call 4091 2010

We've been delivering household gas bottles from 13.5kg (30lb) to 45kg (100lb) to most of the Atherton Tableland region since 1974.  So our experience ensures your safety.

When we deliver we take the empty away, install the full bottle and check for leaks on the connection and around the regulator.  Our trained gas delivery driver delivers gas to Atherton, Mareeba, Malanda, Yungaburra, Tolga, Kairi, Tinaroo, Herberton, Walkamin and plenty of other parts of the Tablelands through the week so give us a call so we can meet your gas needs. 

BBQ bottle or smaller?

We refill smaller bottle and forklift bottles at the shop - and note we will only charge for what we put in, so if your 9kg bottle only needs a top up of 4kgs, we will only charge for 4!  Plus we fill by the decant method which means you get a whole 9kgs, not just 8.5 like the swap and go system.

Licenced Cylinder Retest Station

We are a licenced cylinder retest station.  If your bottle is still in good condition or is a special size or shape you can get it retested.  We remove the old valve, check over the bottle inside and out, install a new valve, stamp it and check it so it is good for another 10 years.  Cheaper than getting a new bottle.

New LCC27 Valve

 The cylinder valve on BBQ bottles have changed.  The older bottles had what is called a POL valve, and the new bottles now have both the POL valve which is the internal thread, but also have the new external Type 27 Thread. The gas leads on all new appliances manufactured must have the Type 27 Thread and thus will only fit the new valve.  Please note the new valve on the gas bottles will still have the POL thread and so will still take your older gas leads.  If you have the new valve on your cylinder it will take both new and old connections, but the new leads on gas appliances will only fit the new valve.

An additional feature on the new valves is that they won't let gas out unless something is screwed into the bottle.  We think this is an improvement, only the transition period may be a little difficult as people change over. 

The cheapest option to get a new valve on your bottle is to bring your bottle in and get it retested, where we will fit the new valve, check the bottle and stamp it for another 10 years.  Alternatively you can buy a new bottle.

If you have any questions, come in and we can show you the different valves and connections.
