That’s a pain. I’m only after getting an under slung LPG tank fitted. The stations are few and far between in southern Ireland but I have found that if I make it my business to fill every time I pass one I’m ok.
I have been thinking about it for a while but on hindsight have never run out of gas In the summer I carry a 13kg and a 6 kg and in the winter 2 x 13kg and the 6kg. In the winter I have never had to resort to the 6kg
It's not really about running out, its the convenience. Fill up with diesel and fill with LPG at the same time, very handy and don't have to wait until a bottle goes empty to change it. Also no lugging bottles about....
We have an underslung tank on our van, fitted mainly as a space saving measure inside the van. It is a 25kg tank and we probably only ever have to fill it once or twice a year. There are still enough places selling it that it's not too much hassle getting it. Though we do live in Dublin which helps.
The second reason we got it was that it would be easier to fill on the continent but have found that this is not always a good thing. As most of the gas sold on the continent is butane we have had a couple of cold nights (below about 5degrees) back home in the winter when the butane then wouldn't work for the heater.
We now usually fill it before heading abroad and will comfortably do 3-4weeks constant use on about a third of a tank.
In the safefill bottle video did the pump cut off automaticly ? Was it at the 80% full mark ? I thought you would put a mark at the 80% full level and fill to that mark.
