Thanks everyone.
I think, on balance, it looks like I will have to have the cylinders outside. Which means moving the hob to an outside wall. Oh well. :)

Baz - your kitchen sounds just like mine! So nice to know that I am not alone in these things.

You don't want to run a hob on propane. Use a butane bottle for the hob and pop it into one of the cupboards in the kitchen.

And yes, one bottle will last about a year. Great value.

Oh!
 How does propane cause a problem when run through a hob?

Love gas- live where they drill it- can't get it on mains! Since we've lived in Scotland we've always had bottled gas for cooking even when we were running our hotel. Love it, never had a problem, never had my hob on the outside wall but as far as I know (at least up here) the bottles must be outside and a certain distance from any windows and must be installed by a Corgi engineer.

We use the big red bottles for the hob on our rangemaster , the connecting pipe was made up to the required length (6 metres ) so you can still have your bottle outside and run the pipe through the wall and under the units to the hob, Using the cooker 2-3 times a day still gives us 12 months use from a bottle.
