    That's a bugger. I used to use it regularly but I've moved now have to find a new local anyway.
    How did they stop you? And how did they know you were filling bottles as the pay kiosk is quite a long way from the pump?

    ASDA's loss! There's plenty more around, just need a bit of research, as denisejoe has posted above.

    I'm wondering if there is a tax issue at the bottom of all this ? ,lpg used for fuel is taxed at a higher rate than when it's used for heating ,perhaps they fearsome sort of a tax return claim from the motorhome fraternity ??

    doubt that.. more likely an insurance issue.. and the attendant enforcing company rules

    a few years ago there was a bad fire at a French Shell filling when a camper was filling refillable bottles.. the outcome was that Shell
    put up new signs reminding that the use of LPG pumps is solely dedicated to LPG powered vehicles,"

    I posted about this in 2011 http://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/forum...on-campervan-lpg-explosion.32708/#post-399914

    Is this for people that fill up from an external filler point or for people that actually try and fill the bottles directly, or is it both?

    Just trying to get clarification as at present we havent been stopped anywhere but we also have an external filler point so not sure how they will know. As it would like we are filling up as normal like petrol/diesel

    both... it becomes obvious when you also fill up with diesel.. :LOL:

    I was refused in France when I tried to fill up a fixed LPG tank on my RV .. I was informed by the attendant.. Autogas is not for cooking ..

    and yes, I do have twin Gaslow 11kg bottles.. hopefully this ruling isn't widely practiced

    Ah right, i am assuming there are a lot of the big rv's that are diesel but still have lpg tanks. If this spreads it will become extremely difficult moving forward. Must be something that can be done, this should really be raised by the likes of Gaslow/Autogas etc as surely this is going to affect their sales. Of course they may not give a damn until it actually does so may be in for a long wait until it changes

    This may be a clue .. ?

    Autogas Limited is a joint venture company between by Calor Gas, the UK's leading supplier of liquefied petroleum gas, and Shell Retail, the leading petrol retailers.

    The union of these two formidable companies, with the sole aim of making LPG more accessible to private and business car drivers, will create a forecourt infrastructure without equal in the UK.

    The company currently supplies and manages automotive LPG facilities at 229 petrol forecourt sites throughout Great Britain mainly Shell company owned sites but also BP, Total, Texaco, Esso and Murco dealer owned sites.

    Hi
    Warning. The BP filling station just outside Mortaqua, Portugal,will send an attendant out to check. We have an underslung tank so explained and showed her the tank and said it was for the engine."OK" she said,went in and paid and she asked if i lived local,i said no,we lived just outside Santa Comba Dao,about 30 mins away. Oh,i know the village well,my God daughter lives in the house by the big rock....
    Question. How do i explain to the locals when filling up with diesel in the village,that it's for cooking ? LOL
