A refillable, heavy-duty pure butane canister. Not Sold Separately.
Please Note: This product cannot be purchased separately - it must be bought with the 904 Refill.
The Campingaz 904 canister
will hold 1.8kg of pure butane gas, and has a high-security valve that will prevent any leaks during connection and disconnection.
Mainly required with larger stoves, BBQs and burners, it needs a screw-on butane regulator
to attach to a hose, to connect to your appliance.
The canister can be filled and refilled at our stores
, or at participating campsites and some gas hire specialists.
This type of gas cylinder is very common in mainland Europe, all across the UK, and also in Ireland.
Only available in our stores - NOT AVAILABLE ONLINE

We have used this for short camping trips and long camping trips and impressed by how much you can fit in a canister. However we did have to return first canister because in the car back from our holiday we could smell gas escaping (you buy the canister then when it needs refilling you exchange the canister for a full one, so you could get an older canister). I imagine we were just unlucky, and as usual Go Outdoors were brililant and exchanged it no problems (as well as carrying it into store for my wife!) However if you have concerns do take it back to store

I am more of a fan of the larger 907 canister, having used those since the 1970's. However in 2009 I was given an empty 904 and have used it as a spare. It just about lasts two weeks with the 2-burner+grill cooker. The screw seal keeps unused gas safe for at least a year so no worries over lost gas at the end of a season.
The network of dealers who exchange these is still comprehensive across the UK and Europe, though campingaz is not as ubiquitous as it once was.

A sensible size for transporting by car - 907 better value but larger. To gauge contents, weigh on purchase (eg with a fisnerman's spring scale) and replace as it approaches 1.8 kg less than the purchased weight (or 2.75 kg for the 907).

I have used these a fair bit, they do the job, though I remember quite a struggle to buy a replacement in the far north of scotland.I still find it a bit hard to guess how much is left in the canister though
