Hi there.

I bought this blowtorch a few months back and as of yet I havent used it. Just checked the website and says I need Butane Gas. Where can I get that in NZ? Im guessing its a pretty common gas? Im thinking Petrol station or Supermarket may have it?

Cheers for the help.

canisters can be got at mitre 10, unsure from photo but it looks refillable so presume a tobaconist or some such that sells refillable lighters and gas

Any hardware or kitchenware store can help you out with that. Most of the canisters come with a range of nozzles built into the lid so you can fit one that fits your torch.
