I was able to order Campung Gaz in the large canisters (470) from Scoutgear.com. The price for 5 canisters and shipping was less than 50.00. I've never had problems with the turbo 270 stoves or lantern during the past 12 years as long as the temperatures were 40 or above.
I use them mainly for car camping and emergency lighting so there's no need to debate why a pop can stove is so much better.

I bought a whole case of the GAZ ones you have to puncture when a local backpacking store went out of business. They are reliable also although i don't use them for long distance hikes anymore as the stove is quite heavy compared to a "pocket rocket"

I switched last year when I had to fly to get to the trail. I have a hard enought time buying the fuel locally.
I have the pocket rocket now. The fuel is half the cost, and I can find it easily when travelling.
