Since changing to a van with LPG for heat and cooking the doom and gloom stories have started up. LPG being phased out, pumps on forecourts disappearing.
Phew. Within 20 minutes of my home my LPG supplier has just invested £15,000 to install new tank and equipment. He's absolutely happy that LPG is worth his while.
I'm giving him a shout out because he's five minutes from the M40, junction 10. Good to know. He's near Bicester.
A.E Prentice. What Three Words:
Clearcut.slicer.saga on B4100. He likes you to call him ahead on 01869 346800.
Closed Sundays. Hoorah. All is not lost.

Good to hear this after the never ending doom and gloom about LPG disappearing.
In the years to come we will buy bread at Morrison’s, petrol at a petrol station and LPG (not autogas) at an LPG specialist retailer...

Good to know. Thanks.

Here is a link to the one we use in Bristol. Also excellent service, and just outside of the new ULEZ zone.

Welcome news, a short trip up the M40 for me, and ideal if you are heading up that way.

I was topping up at Morrisons in Port Talbot 5 minutes from M4, had a chat with the lady cashier saying how I was worried that the pumps would go, as that’s where I regularly top up and she told me that Morrisons are keeping the LPG pumps. What 3 words -§Flame. Fake. Solar§-

Have you entered the details on apps like mylpg.eu ? that will give them some extra promotion.
I have 2 places that are opposite each other only 1 mile away from me, i often update the prices on the apps so people know they are still current.

... Just checked, yes they are on there. (y)

I agree completely, but I had reason to visit SafeFill in Stoke and they are shipping thousands of large and smaller refillable bottles. Almost always sold out.
*Other refillable bottles are available 🤭💖

Filled up last week at Morrison's Holderness road Hull, had a bit of a problem getting it to lock on, but nice chap in the station talked us through it, we just needed to put the pump back in and start again. Very helpful, son still has an LPG car, but there are a couple of places near him, the Morrison's at chorley does not have an LPG pump.

Texaco Hinton Admiral BH23 7DS. East of Christchurch. I think they still have an LPG pump
Cheers Pal, you're a star💥
I gave them a call and Martin informs me that they are the only one within 20miles, the price is 99.9 per litre

Correlation between distance and price, perhaps?

Price down the road here in Poland is 60p/lt, but nearly all stations sell it. So I can just stop en-route.
