    Now I've not been doing this travelling about in Spain much and I will also bow to those with much more experienced than me, so....
    Going into Marjal, back from a drive out to the mountains with SWMBO and I see Old Mo messing about with his LPG tank on his Motorhome.
    "Hi Mo what's up"?
    "After being charged so much for my electric I'm fitting this here gas bottle into my gas system. But the bloody spigot is USA and small so the pipe is a bit loose. So I put soom PTFE tape round it and it's pretty OK now. Of course I'm fitting it in front of my van gas regulator".
    "er..why"
    "To reduce the pressure, that's what it's for!" and a wiithering look.
    "But you've already got a regulator stuck on the end of the pipe that fits on the bottle".
    "That's not a regulator, it's a switch"
    "See that box you've just taken it out of, what does it say?"

    "Er......30 mbar, Regu...............don't you dare put that on the forum!"
    That was an hour ago.

    hehehehe well the bottled gas is cheap enough out there,

    Mo if you dont have a spannish orange gas bottle, find a garage that sells gas in the silver look a like beer kegs, ok so you have to pay a deposit on the first one but hey ho

    Did you know you cannot see "Shards" of glass in Branston.. and he paid me for it.. :Wink::Wink::Rofl1:

    Mo,
    Remember, I still have that picture and I know the donkey won't say anytinhg but I might let it slip.
    I've already been at my electric box and so far it's now, reversed polarity, three phase, and digitaly modified with my sonic screwdriver, so beware. I will leave a roll of gafer tape and a small camping gas bottle, on the step, should the need arise.

    Gentlemen, please, settle down now.
    I am in Durham and cannot get out of my drive because of the blizzard conditions. You are worried about poor mo's slight slipup with his gas bottle!!
    Say a pray for me.
