It doesn't need to be very cold for butane to stop boiling off well. It may not gas off at all at 5 degrees or below but I've known mine to be reluctant/intermittent if the cylinder was outside in the shade, at 7 or 8 degrees. I use a local externally bottle on longer stays and have once or twice ended up unthinkingly buying butane.
That's not such a big problem if it's just that your kettle isn't boiling well. My cooker does not have thermocouples on the rings, so any gas flow at all will produce a flame. I could see how weak that flame was on cold mornings with a butane cylinder, indicating that the gas supply is poor. You can't see inside the heater, but a poor gas supply will prevent it working at all.
Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.
