I am due to go camping in a couple of weeks.

I have acquired two gas bottles, both blue which I believe is for BUTANE only. However the two sizes are quite different (see photo).
Can anyone tell me how long each of them will last, for about two people camping?

We were looking to take the smaller one away for the 12-14 days or so and there is gas available to buy (or rather exchange the bottle for a full one), but I'd rather not bother if I don't have to.

This will be my first time playing around with gas like this so if anyone has any other helpful tips then I'd be grateful.

Thanks

Depends on how much you're going to use them. Once a day for a couple of minutes, you might stretch it, but I doubt they'll last 12-14 days.

We have the small one in our caravan and on our dual burner cooker

it was 1/4 full when we got it and we have been camping 5 times since we got it

we use it for Lunches and Dinners and occasionally breakfasts and its not empty yet
