Hi Superd-You do know that "Gas Ekspres" is a gas station, right? You can trade in your little LP tank there for a full one. They will not refill a tank for you (that's not done on Bonaire, as far as I know).

Nope, not kidding. That's what they always did before; the tanks go back & forth since there's no LP filling station here (or wasn't). Maybe it's different now, but you were told they're waiting for fuel from Curacao...most likely they meant the actual tanks.

The 100lb bottles are filled locally, the 20lbs make the run back and forth to Curacao. No idea why. I run a pair of 20s (one for my stove, one for my dryer), and they usually last me a few months each. Of course, the only times they both go dry at once are the times that there aren't any small bottles on the island.

Kevin, he 100 pound bottles are filled in Curacao, not locally unless the have changed the past few weeks. Also, Harbour Village Marina will fill 20 lb bottles on the spot..No need to wait for the boat to come in..
