    Nice.. what are the two fittings in the top photograph??
    One below the sill and the top one in the body panel..
    I'm assuming one is a fill point..
    Ta andy

    Same though just crossed my mind too?. Could be problematic on some sites I've been on?. and the odd Ferry ramp?

    What worries me is it looks just where I've caught our nearside skirt twice, once on a low iron bollard on a pavement corner and then on some wood in a garden parking. At least you can think about it.

    If you look to the left in one of the photos you can see the locker which appears to be even lower.

    I don't think so, when the gas locker is down the bottom line will be straight. Now you've made me look again I like it even less. Just to the left there looks to be a small panel under an amber reflector, I would like to see it there, if it were mine. Or even where that reflector is.

    It sure would not add to a holiday if this gets knocked off.

    I don't think the issue would be in "normal" operation. It might be tricky if you went too close to an object on that side when manoeuvring? OR as I previously observed, ferry ramps, some of which have "Fingers" which can Jamb and leave just one raised. I know that I've been tasked with the job of "fixing" them before today! Usually a large hammer and grease gun! I even burned one off once with an Oxy set! the "owner" was half pleased! when they got the bill!.

    Yes, below the reflector in the little bit of panel would have been better I agree, I wonder if there was something in the way?

    Sorry but I when I see a possible problem I just can't say nothing, that would really be letting you down.

    Have to agree with Brian, my first thought was it looks low (roughly about the centre of the wheel if not lower looking at the photo but could be deceiving depending on the angle)
    Am sure Autogas, who have a very good reputation, would sort it if you were concerned about the height being a potential problem

    I am pretty sure the monster urban speed bumps I had to negotiate today that would have taken that inlet valve off!!

    That is where I fitted mine.. nothing in the way.. the bit of pipe insulation you can see is covering a short piece of ally angle I fitted to stop the panel flexing when filling.. the fill hose is resting on it.. didn't want it chaffing.

    you can also see clearly in this photo where the chassis rail is

    It looks low to me too, I fitted mine in the panel to the right of the gas locker.
