Default gas butano

What is the price for a bottle butano?
I know it is more expensive than in Spain.
Today I saw at AKI: Rubis Gas 13 kg butano Tara EUR 9.

What does that mean? That cannot be the price for 13 kg gas?

About €24.

The €9 is the deposit on the canister.

Hi,

Can I buy gas bottles or is a technical check of the installation at home neccesary before I can buy (like in Spain)?

Thanks

I think that you might encounter that problem if you ask a supplier to deliver and connect the bottles for you. If you go to a supplier and buy the bottles how can they possibly know what you are going to do with them? I've never been asked for proof of anything.

Thanks. We now contacted a plumber / company who works with Rubis to install a gas heater. We will ask him to deliver 2 new bottles.

I also read the discussion in the government about the high prices for butano/ propano. They want to change that in 2018. The government wants a maximum price.
In Spain we pay +/- EUR 15.50 for 13 kg butano.

Wait and see.
