    Hi all and thanks for a great forum. Near to collecting panel van, German manufacturer in Fiat Ducato with space for two 11kg cylinders or two times anything up to 330 diameter and 600 tall. Hope to go for refillable system with adapters as expect travel abroad. Locker is inside but easy to reach through van rear door. Don't want to go punching holes in the new panels. Understand by law I can have two cylinders up to 16kg with that arrangement for storage if locker sealed and vented correctly. Van has compressor only fridge, Truma combined hot water and blown air system and a gas hob. No idea what gas consumption our not yet know living style will create. Also fancy including a take off for external barbecue. Van might be used for winter holidays later in life. Thinking to start with single tank and add another if required later. Two adult occupancy mostly but space for two budies if required. What do those who went before suggest for a system to buy and fit myself?

    Single refillable and use the other space for the BBQ, that's what we do.

    Start with a single bottle & see how you get on, easy to add a second. Gas-it are a bit cheaper than Gaslow, but if weight is an issue the Alugas aluminum bottles are good.

    We have a built in cylinder which holds around 12kg and it lasts us 6 to 8 weeks of cooking and fridge use. However, our heating system is diesel, a gas heater will of course increase consumption. This might give you an idea how many cylinders to get.
