Gas Cylinder Sizes
« on: July 05, 2018, 12:30:39 pm »
Does anybody know if you can switch a smaller DISA  6kg cylinder for a larger one when you buy a refill or do you need a new contract for a larger cylinder?

In the past, you could get 2 small plastic ones in exchange for the big metal one.

But, the big metal ones are no longer for sale and have been replaced by a similar size plastic one making it considerably lighter than the old ones. there is also 1,5kg less gas in it and they also increased the price.

Try the big ones first as they are easier to carry, etc.

You have got me interested now, having a read and at this link for charges: https://www.disagrupo.es/gas/gas_cocina_contratacion.aspx

It seems to say there is the same fixed service charge for any bottle size 6, 11, 12.5Kg. Therefore it wouldn't surprise me if you could switch one size for the other, as long as you are just paying for more gas and all the connectors and type of gas are the same..... but this is Spain so you can't be sure until you try :)

For the small nu-b bottles you only need a contract. For the large metal bottles you need a contract and a licence. Don't know what they require for the new larger nu-b+ bottles. You can only exchange like for like bottles. The large metal bottles will stay in circulation, but new ones will not be produced. The move to the nu-b+ large bottle is because they are more environmentally friendly and recyclable.

Go to the main Disa garage at the north end of Rosario. Take your passport/ID and your NIE and you can get a Nu-b bottle on a contract

Thanks for the really useful info on this...I did notice at the place in Villa Verde where I usually get mine that they appeared to have a larger size of the nu-b cylinder, but it looks like I will need to get a new contract.
