Deposit On Cooking Gas Tank?

Recommended Posts

How much should the deposit on a tank of cooking gas be?

Last time I bought a full gas tank I paid 1,000 baht. That was years ago, maybe 1,500 baht at today's price (includes the gas about 340 baht).

Has anyone ever got the deposit back?

Why would one? You just keep trading for a full tank without paying another deposit... Or of course you could be asking a rhetorical question?

I think its more of a "buy the first tank" rather than a deposit.

I think if you were leaving the area then the gas guy might give you a couple of hundred baht to take the tank if it was in decent condition. But aren't these tanks only certified for a number of years before the gas guy won't change it out anymore?

Since the tank is changed all the time (unless if you insist on getting your own tank refilled) this really is a moot point.

Unless gas guy gives you an really old tank.

Yes, when I left Phuket in 2011 I brought my gas tank back and they returned me the deposit. Which was 1500 Baht, I think.

A new large gas bottle costs under 4000 baht and the smaller size we bought for the BBQ is 2400 baht both full

Gas bottles are supposed to be tested after a period of time which does not happen here

If renting do not worry about it unless the bottle is leaking contact your landlord its his responsibility

  1. Find a gasretailer who will exchange your bottle for one in the same condition or refill your own

There is a gas place on Choa Fa East past fatties and before the traffic lights to the zoo. Left side, sell gas appliance, and can refill your bottle on the premises.
