The MCCAA draws the attention of the general public on the domestic gas supply in Malta – LPG; a mixture of butane and propane. The Authority has found cases where regulators for gas intended solely for butane is sold together with a gas heater or BBQs.
Consumers are using regulators clearly intended for domestic butane gas cylinders (LPG) should stop using them immediately.
Therefore, these butane regulators should be returned to retailers where purchased. The type of gas regulator is indicated on the plate located on the top of the regulator (see photos above).
