Help With Low Or No Gas Flow As Cylinder Empties
(The Gers, SW France)
This not a BBQ problem per se but I'm sure you can help. I have a large 5 burner range and gas oven, fed by bottled cylinder Butane. EG when the cylinder is empty, I just swap it at the shop.
For a while now the following has been happening. As the gas bottle gets to under half full, having one burner on is fine. But fire up a second burner and throw in the oven and presto, tiny flames from the burners making cooking impossible.
I go out into the cold (SW France so not too bad), shake the bottle and everything is ok for a few minutes, then again, all burners die down to just barely there.
I could swap for a full cylinder but would have to waste all the remaining gas in the bottle so there must be a better way.
Many thanks, any suggestions much appreciated. For instance, should I just lie the gas bottle on its side o, shorten the rubber gas hose from the regulator to the oven or, bring the bottle inside.
PS Great website. Will be a great reference in summer for the BBQ.
