    Having heard that Morrisons will not allow any Motorhome to use the Autogas pumps I Emailed their Customer Service team to ask why. It took 2 emails and a phone call to get any response.At that stage they said their policy had always been not to allow Motorhomes to fill at Autogas pumps due to "Health & Safety" When I asked why a lpg converted land rover could use the pump and not a Motorhome with exactly the same tank and filler could not I was met with a silence followed by: I will enquire and if we want to say anything else we will Email you."
    I got the Email today and basically " Motorhomes gas systems are not tested every year but cars are,so unsafe Motorhome systems could cause fires on forecourts. There have already been 2 motorhome caused fires on forecourts this year! Calor, the supplier to Morrisons fully support the action. Morrisons close the Email by saying they will not enter into any further debate on this matter from me!
    The phrase " I don't bl**dy believe it" comes to mind.
    Comments please, and perhaps a few Emails to Morrisons.!

    No just don't use Morrisons. It is their profits that are falling, head man being sacked and all that.

    Stop using Morrisons and e-mail them to say you are doing so because of their discrimination.

    Where do they get their information, there is no compulsory annual testing of LPG systems on any vehicle, in fact there is no compulsory testing of the installation, although your insurer will usually want to see the certificate assuming it has been declared.

    We had lpg vans on full maintenance contract hire, the lpg was never tested in the four years we had them. One van had a problem, the supplying main dealer had to call a specialist in as no one in the dealership was qualified to work on lpg

    They send someone out to check you have an external filler he always gave us the thumbs up.

    Why cause an issue with them based on rumour and hearsay?

    We have always used Morrisoms with no problem.

    Now you have made it an issue, we can all expect nice shiny 'No motorhome' signs!:doh:

    It isn't right to refill Calor or similar hired bottles but it is fine to fill fixed bottles like Alugas and Gaslow which have a fixed filling point and bottles which are made for refilling.
    Our local Morrisons doesn't sell Autogas but we have an independent filling station only about a mile away where the staff are always happy for us to fill up - normally ask me where we have been, did we enjoy it and where are we going next :)

    I have my tank and installation checked every year by Chris or John at Autogas2000. I have a throughput of over 1000 litres per year so things do get worn. Inspection before last he found a valve was faulty. I do this for peace of mind not for any other reason.

    Jonandshell, I have not made any issue! Morrisons have. I was stopped from filling up at Boroughbridge last week (I have filled up there many times) I have a Gaslow system with external filler. Perhaps your commentwas on "rumour and hearsay"
