It doesn't say whether this from from an onboard lpg system but if so will increase likelihood of further bans on filling those at petrol station lpg pumps.

Oh dear. The implications for those of us with refillable systems could be a nuisance. I hope that a full report will emerge in due course, clarifying the circumstances.

Thanks, Roger, for alerting the Forum so quickly to this story.

Hi there,

I agree with Cymro and I reckon it will certainly impact on others with refillable LPG systems!

However, Murphy's First Law (*) is ....

"If it can happen it will happen."

I've been caravanning and motor-homing on and off for well over fifty years without feeling the need for a refillable system.

The bottled LPG gives me flexibility with regard to Propane or Butane (depending on the season) and I can park up for months on end without having to move the motorhome to a service station to refill the LPG tank ....

.... so, the refillable systems may deliver cheaper LPG but are they really a benefit? (*)  scratch head   scratch head

Best regards,
drinksallround

PS

The (*)'s are in memory of Brian Murphy who is sorely missed when this subject comes up. twiddle_thumbs twiddle_thumbs

I use a lot if gas as I try and avoid EHU sites, don't normally stop in one place long enough to empty the tank so works very well for me up!. Plus of course with not the best back in the world I don't have to lug bottles around.

That's true, but for many years now I have used propane in all seasons, certainly from -10 to +40 
without problems. Is there a need for the 'flexibility' to use butane ?  
Indeed does anyone else change gas with the seasons ?
