So I'm moving from the big smoke (Sydney) to the bush/sticks/Gympie as a result I'm losing my natural gas on tap (or meter as the case maybe) the new house has a gas stove, I'm unsure if it has 9kg bottles or the bigger ones as I don't remember seeing them.
I'm considering doing the kitchen up and really would love to go back to a gas oven. Anyone happen to know how feasible this is on bottled gas?
I've tried electric cooking, I can't do it.. It's forgiven territory and I get worse each time I move into an electric cooking house the last one I didn't cook after 2 weeks without an appliance other then the stove.

I'm not remote at all but the street I live in is too rocky for natural gas - we have an induction cooktop as hooking up large gas bottles outside (my neighbours have) was a big expense.
I've always used gas and hated electric BUT I'm converted by induction. Water boils quicker than in my kettle and goes down to simmering just as quickly as gas.
Perhaps find someone with induction and try it before deciding about converting kitchen?

DP's father has a massive gas oven and cooktop. He runs it off a 9kg bottle. It goes for a really long time!
DP and I have a small kitchen and run it off bottled gas 9kg also - since my daughter has been born (9months) we've only changed it once recently and we started it on a half empty bottle!

I run a gas cooktop on bottles. It's easy. I have 2 big bottles and when they get low gas man comes and changes them over. Easy peasy

We run out stove from a 9kg gas bottle. We have 2 so if one runs out we can switch to the other and get the first one filled (in theory). (The back up of the back up is the BBQ 9kg gas bottle.)
I need a gas stove so I can toast flour tortillas on the flame.
(Turn ring on, put tortilla directly on flame for a few seconds, flip and do the other side. Done.)
