3 Common Mistakes When Ordering LPG

No one likes to run out of LPG.
Cold showers are very overrated!
There are 3 common mistakes to avoid to prevent running out of gas.

The Three Mistakes & Hints to Avoid Them

1. Not ordering when the first bottle runs out 

Never take a cold shower again for lack of gas.

Always order your LPG as soon as the first bottle runs out.

Don’t wait until the gas bottles are both empty or near empty.

It costs no more per bottle to order one bottle at a time.

void this common mistake and you are virtually assured to never run out of gas.


Load and save our Text (SMS) order message on your mobile phone.

As soon as you switch over your gas bottles just send us the Text Order Message and you are done.

You get an order confirmation, too.

Or you can order your LPG online:

2. Forgetting to check more frequently in cold weather

Remember to check your gas bottles more often in cold weather, especially if you use a gas heater of gas fireplace.

Even your water heater has to work harder in cold weather, as the incoming water is colder.


Have a look at your orders from last year and see how many weeks it was between orders.

Then load a reminder into your smartphone or onto your computer to remind you to check slightly earlier than you would expect to run out.

3. Not checking more often when you have house guests

Having house guests means more showers, more laundry and more dish washing.

If you use LPG for your hot water, this means you should check that much more often.


Remember to check more frequently so both you and your guests avoid cold showers!

For gas bottle exchange customers, not running out of gas is a team effort between you and Elgas.

Even though we have the largest fleet of LPG delivery trucks in Australia, we can’t be everywhere every day.

Checking your gas bottles and ordering on a timely basis helps us keep you in gas.
