    o_Oo_O:cautious:Has anyone got any views on which system is best to install GAS IT or Gaslow. Seems that GAS IT is much cheaper. I would prefer to not fit an external filler but i believe that some filling stations do not allow these to be used, has anyone ever been refused?
    I am aware that LPG filling station are pretty much accessible all over Europe, this has prompted me to consider an installation as we spent most of out time touring Europe.

    Gas-it Stako bottles are made in the same factory as the Gaslow ones in Poland.
    We have Alugas a bit more expensive, well made German bottles and saves a bit of weight.

    We have gasit with the external filler point. Only used it a couple of times at the petrol stations and the last one I didn't know how to work it at the pump so the attendant did it for me.

    We have two bottles from Autogas 2000 much lighter, fitted by Dave Newell. Very good and pump gas prices much cheaper then bottled gas.

    Just fitted twin Gaslow 11kg R67 bottles , auto changeover valve with external filler ..
    thread here.. http://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/forum...-bottles-in-a-hymer-b644.106145/#post-1380359

    The Gaslow R67 bottles have an automatic 80% shut off valve, over pressure relief valve, filter, excess flow valve that shuts off the gas in the event of a rupture, and new improved gauge.

    There have been a few reports of LPG stations refusing to serve when the filler is inside the locker.. but not many.. I fitted outside, personal preference.. .. and it only entails drilling a 70mm hole in the skirt..

    There are literally dozens of threads on fitting refillable bottles..
    try a search

    Autogas 2000, fitted by Dave Newell 2 years ago, could not be happier.

    We too have a gaslow system, it's now fitted in number 3 van, I always take it out before selling a van. I have the filler on the side of the van as this way hopefully filling won't be a problem. The only pain with our system is that it's pre gas level gauge on bottles but as we have an auto change over valve I can see when one bottle is empty. When travelling to Spain for the winter we have a Spanish bottle "empty" which when we arrive we exchange and use. That's because there are only a few gas refill points throughout Spain and a bottle of gas is just €18 or so at the campsite.

    I put ours on the same side as the fuel filler to save messing about when we wanted fuel and gas. Plus a brace to stop the skirt flexing, had to bring it across the MoHo but worth the extra time. image.jpg image.jpg

    worth adding that the skirt the filler is fitted into has been beefed up a bit and extra support added, as the advice I got from @Steve was that the fill nozzle is quite a heavy item... which I didn't know
