We are currently on Villa Sol and have a problem with our gas supply
We have a fixed under slung gas tank and have been feeding gas in through to BBQ point for the past week
I have of course turned off the tank supply prior to doing this
Our gas supply has got less over the past few days and is now stopped all together,
I have unhooked the supply to the BBQ point and turned on the fixed tank supply witch was filled prior to going on site ,but no joy
Got an engineer booked but he is not able to attend until Thurs/Friday
Any ideas ?

Is there any gas in your underslung tank? I know you said it was filled prior to trip but could there be a leak somewhere that has drained the tanks and thus reduced pressure due to escape, combined with a possible duff regulator or two. Where are you getting your gas if you fill a bottle and onboard tank before trip or pitching. Could it be dirty shite gas? Just a thought :)

Just a thought, might be completely off track. Is your external supply through the BBQ point regulated? I have in mind back pressure causing a problem somewhere, maybe the regulator.

It does sound like a blockage - probably the clue is where you said it got less and less over a period of time. What casts doubt on that theory is that you have used two different supply points so they can't both have blocked. The common point is the manifold of shut-off taps for your appliances: is it possible one or more could have been moved towards off? It might be worth closing them all then re-opening them.
