    You'd be better off with a 2kg FE :)

    My mum wont let me go the fire extinguisher route. She only wants me to get a proper set but i give her untill christmas before she has had enough of taking me to get refills.

    Hope you can get cheap refills! I have seen people charging £15-25 to refill a 500g bottle :bored:

    £14.95 for 500g and £25.95 for 2kg. To buy a 2kg cylinder though its £150! im tempted to just buy the fire extinguisher etc and hide it. She never goes near the tank so i may get away with it.

    Used bottles either throw then in the recycle bin, or put them up for sale on ebay, someone might collect them from you.

    Crikey I feel lucky!

    I've just rung the fire extinguisher shop around the corner from where I live. He's offereing a 2nd hand 5 kg cylinder for £10 each and will refill for £10 a time... in other words he's giving me the bottles for free!
