    Hi,

    Can someone please advise me on which torch this is and what gas it's using? Sorry for picture quality. It's the best one I could find.

    Picture quality? It's invisible. That's some quality.

    The container should state the gas Butane - Propane - or - Mapp

    Does the colour of the container provide an indication?

    looks like a Sievert re-fillable propane bottle, not sure what the nozzle is,
    you can get them from most plumbers merchants

    Plus one on the sievert, the bottle looks like the primus 2000 refillable which i think can only be filled with propane

    I know you can get great torches like the superfire but I used this recently and it felt sufficient for my use and m hoping that its not as expensive either...
    can anyone suggest an equivalent model?

    2000 bottles were know as flame throwers in the 70s. Nothing better for clearing out your bowels if you turned it upside down near hairfelt!!

    I remember once setting pipe felt on fire in the kitchen then racing up 2 flights of stairs into the attic to meet the flame coming out there :(
