    Hi Folks

    I am aware that you can not travel on the ferries to Europe with an LPG tank that is more than 80% full. (I think).

    The gauge on my tank has two full points, one at 80% and one at 100%. When I fill the tank with autogas the pump cuts out at the 80% full marker on the gauge.

    Will I be ok to travel with the gauge showing 80%

    Thanks

    Jim :Smile:

    You should have no problems, our tanks have never been checked by the ferry operators. Eurotunnel are much more fussy though.

    Hi Jim

    You should not have any problems whatsoever with an LPG guage showing 80% on the Ferries - we have travelled several times on bvarious Ferries and not had the LPG checked once.

    However, you will not be able to travel the Channel Tunnel if you have a petrol/LPG conversion - they will not allow LPG tanks which cannot be turned off and isolated from the main vehicle.

    LPG tanks only fill to 80% anyway.

    Dont plan to much (you know how the saying goes about best laid plans!!!)

    What ever you forget you can get where ever you end up and if you cant get it you will do without it and wonder why you needed it in the first place!!!:Eeek:

    We just pack up and go, no worries, no hastle just make sure all the paperwork for the van is correct and you have a credit card!!!:thumb:

    Enjoy yourselves:thumb::thumb:
