Butane cooking gas in winter below 32F/0C doesn't work!
[This forum is so useless I couldn't find a better section to put this in.]
General info for Google's future reference.
In London I am using Butane cooking gas instead of the normal Propane.
(my propane tank has the 'other' fitting on it so had to switch.)
Anyway, Butane doesn't work very well in cold temperatures! Below 0c /32f it doesn't work at all as the liquid doesn't convert to gas.
At 3 or 4C is produces so little gas the stove barely stays lit
Soooooooooo last night I invited 2 friend for dinner - roast pork with crackling......
Outside its about 4 degrees. I lit the stove and the tiny flame made me think the tank was empty but shaking it showed plenty.
Sooooooo I had to take the butane cylinder below and heat it with a fan heater!
Sensational dinner after that.
Moral to the story:
*Propane is better
*Never leave the tropics
*Never invite friends
*Obtain a girlfriend and blame the *****.
