    Hi, Tiffin Allegro,Cummins B series 5.9 turbo diesel. 80 galls main tank,50 galls spair tank.I know this may sound a lot to carry,but it makes it cheaper to run when I can fuel up in countries where fuel is cheapest,ie,Luxembourg,Spain,Morroco.

    Hurricane has 75 us gallons which is around 62 gallons in real money. Since conversion I carry max 150lt LPG and although original petrol tank exists only carry 1/4 tank for genny and starting.

    Anyone had the filling station refuse them to fill up? I did on the way back from London, They said the max I could fill up at one time was $150, I would then have to pay it then go back and carry on filling unitl I reached the next £150.
    That also applied to the autogas too:Eeek:

    Maybe it's because we might speed off without paying, and have false plates on so we might mingle our 35ft RV in with the rest of the traffic? :ROFLMAO:

    Hi Boo

    Car diesel pumps are set to cut off at 100lt .. I think that's for safety reasons ..

    When I use the truck diesel pump I normally have to hand over a credit or debit card before filling ..

    Hit the limit a few times but 'they' always say just hang up the gun and start again then pay for the lot in one go. The odd station can't add two/three together so paying is one at a time but no ones made me pay as I go.

    Maybee they don't like the look of you:ROFLMAO:

    Happens all the time, the pump cuts off at around £100.00. Tank size I dont know. I count MPG as Money Per Mile/Gallon or Litre, 6.8 Litre, V10 Ford Engine.

    Hi never got passed 100L of LPG, always cuts out at that, release pressure and fill again. I was told at one station that you can only do that once as the computor can't handle more than two transactions at the one pump.

    Different in France, fills till its full, and you can disconnect and then fill your domestic tank all without the pump stopping.
