Quick, easy and hassle-free with Calor LPG

With lower fuel costs, simple refuelling and a compact and lightweight design, Calor’s LPG generators are ideal for busy catering businesses needing a reliable, portable power supply.

Father and son snack van business, Come Dine with Me recently switched to the new LPG generators fuelled by Calor gas to provide power for their snack vans, replacing their previous diesel and petrol models. Here’s why.

Like other snack van businesses, the Dean’s rely completely on their generator. Without it, they can’t operate, as any loss of electric power would mean they would have to close the snack van down until power can be restored, making the choice of fuel absolutely crucial to the running of their vans.

Dean Gray Junior had previously used petrol on his snack van, and was having to refill twice a day, including taking regular trips to the local petrol station, Meanwhile, Dean Gray Senior, who used diesel to fuel his van, was having to wait for the generator to cool down before refilling. 

Since switching to the Greengear LPG generators, it’s just a case of changing the empty gas bottle for a full one.

Dean Gray Senior says:

“It’s so much easier, we haven’t got to mess about going to fetch diesel or petrol, now we’ve just got a gas bottle, which is delivered directly to our door. 

“The diesel generators were very dirty and smelly and you’d get fuel all over your hands when refuelling. Whereas with the Greengear generator there is no smell and it’s much cleaner and more efficient than other fuel sources.”

Dean Gray Junior adds: “We’ve been relying on Calor gas for years to operate our hot plates and water boiler, but we can now run our lights, fridges and microwaves on it, so we only have one fuel source. 

“When we do events, we don’t have to take any fuel, which is great because most event organisers don’t like to have it on site. They don’t like loud generators either – LPG is so much quieter, and is the cleanest fuel source for us.”

“Since switching to a Greengear LPG generator and only using one fuel source, I’ve halved the cost and we have a three-year warranty with Calor, which gives us added piece of mind.”
