    I've just been contacted by a user of the Parking web site who was disappointed to discover a height limit of 3m. at Asda's Carlisle petrol service when they need 3.2m clearance for their coachbuilt motorhome.

    She emailed Asda to ask if all their fuel services have the same restriction and received the following reply:
    Ah well, Asda's loss is other suppliers' gain.

    Asda at Greenhithe has a 4metre limit, There is a sign that says this but no height barriers.

    We always use this one.

    Suggest you collate all the responses to your thread and inform the boss of ASDA to get his facts straight!

    No problem at Aberdeen fill up there regularly.

    found various heights

    I have found various heights.

    One of the issue I have being an RV is that we are fairly tall, especial with the air con box, saterlite dome and other roof items.. The entry height to some fuel stations, especially Tesco is they have cameras located below the roof of the canopy, I have to get Sue out of the RV and walk some distance away infront to get me round this obstructions. The height signs are not often as they say they are.

    Always take it easy going in.. the only ones that are all OK seem to be motorway services.

    Just been Googling ,...

    Canopy heights are governed by local planning laws.. this will vary from county to county .. for example..

    In Cornwall
    compared to Dudley


    Many filling stations have facilities for commercial vehicles with no canopy .. that's what I used to always use with the RV .. much easier access and faster filling with no cut off at 99lt .. .. only downside was they sometimes ask for your plastic before turning the pump on..
