Default Adding additional Alugas Cylinder Advice ob Fittings

Hi all

Have a single 11kg Alugas cylinder with external filler fitted to the van, have just purchased an additional 11 kg cylinder.

Advice please, what fittings and hoses do I require to connect it up to the system I have. Not bothered about an auto changeover valve.

Many thanks in advance

Default Alugas

If you give this guy a ring, we have always found them very helpfull.
We have a Gaslow system and when we were using them to fill our bottles up we found one of hoses damaged, they sold us a new pipe and fitted it free while we waited.


Hope this helps
Sue

We had our first Autogas cylinder fitted by Dave Newell, who did an excellent job, but some months later found we needed a second at short notice when we didn't have time to go to Telford. Living close to Thirsk I contacted Chris Wise at Autogas 2000, who was very helpful and fitted us in for the work within a couple of days, also excellent workmanship.

If you do go there and approach from the A19 via Thirsk (rather than from the A1) the sign is a bit difficult to see because of a big tree (it's on the left just before you see Carlton Service Station on the right; putting YO7 4NJ into Google Maps gives exact location).

you need

1 x http://www.gasit.co.uk/index.php?_a=...product_id=295 or length to suit your system

and

1 of these http://www.gasit.co.uk/index.php?_a=...product_id=267

plus i would recommend a manual changeover valve but thats your choice

pS; just check the thread sizes are the same on alugas cylinders i am fairly certain they are but just to be safe. call them at Gas it really helpfull and cheaper than Gaslow or Autogas

Hello Stewart. I'm sure Chris can advise you on the fittings you need.
