Description

here we meet a delivery van in the morning, he showed us the way to the gas plant where we met him. There he hide our US-cylinder between the other cylinder and fills it in the plant. We had to wait ca. one hour and get 11kg propane for 30 BOL. See our other entrys...

Waved down two separate drivers to fill my 3kg tank from argentina. Both said no, I offered a tip and tried to flirt (haha) but although they seemed to like talking to me they told me ‘no podemos princesa’ and recommended that I drive down to the border to fill it, no thanks. better luck in Uyuni...

Report Check-In

If you cannot find a truck driver to take your tank to the plant, or you simply don't want to waste time begging for help; do the following (IFF you have a US tank that is): go in town, buy two propane tank adapters as the Bolivian and US tanks have the exact same thread, buy two hose clamps and 2 meters worth of yellow gas line. Assemble your new tank connector. You should have paid about 70 BOL in all. Now go to Popygas or any distributor, buy THEIR tank (22.5 BOL), and gravity fill from their tank to yours, just keep their tank higher in the air than yours and gas will flow from the high pressure filled tank to your low pressure empty tank. Remember to let out air in your empty tank from time to time (there's a check screw) so the liquid gas can flow. You are done, AND you don't have to beg or waste more time in the future!
