    Hello,

    I want to fit an onboard propane regulator but find several rated from 0.5 bar to 4 bar.

    Which is best. I have a 3 burner hob. Water heater and blown air heating.( no oven or grill).

    Any advice welcome.

    Thanks

    Alan

    You need a 30millibar regulator, any regulator giving more than 37mbar output pressure will be very dangerous to use.

    Hi Andy

    I think you have your units confused .. LPG regulators are in mb

    The new EU standard for bulkhead regulators is as said, 30mb .. but you have a German van, I believe they used to have 50mb regulators, this may be where you are getting confused..

    If you change to 30mb there will be a slight loss in efficiency from your appliances, so you may want to check the pressure rating or the appliances before proceeding and fit the appropriate regulator.

    If you decide to go to 30mb, check with the appliance makers to see if they can be re jetted to 30mb.
