    Low gas pressure at the cooker. Turn on extra burner it drops further. Twin Gaslow system fitted and yes do have plenty of gas. Trauma regulator fitted (2 years old) Reading various posts on the topic would suggest the regulator is failing. Don't want to replace it with another trauma, any suggestions please.

    Gaslow regs seem to get an OK report. Two years doesn't seem very long though, you picking up "dirty" gas somewhere?

    One fill in France and one in Spain recently. Didn't know there was such a thing as dirty gas.

    All LPG is 'dirty' to some extent. It comes with what are termed 'low ends' by the industry - greasy stuff to you and me. Normally it sits at the bottom of tanks or bottles & doesn't cause any problems. The issue with failing fixed regulators has been pinned-down to plasticisers seeping out of the hose from tank/bottles to regulator. Arranging the hose so it rises towards the regulator helps but the long-term answer is braided stainless hose (doesn't use rubber as a liner) from tank/bottles to regulator. GasLow sell it. It has another advantage of very long life unlike the alternatives.

    All hoses are stainless Gaslow hoses. Time to buy a new Gaslow regulator I believe
