When caravanning in the winter months, gas heaters and cookers can be crucial for keeping you and your family comfy.

For this reason, the insurance experts at Towergate have recently published a handy guide to choosing the right type of fuel for your holiday.
They also explain the different techniques you can use to tell whether your gas cylinder is empty or not, including an old-fashioned method and some clever new technology from Calor and Truma.
