    We'll need to top up the LPG in the next week or two. I haven't spotted an LPG garage in the area so far, does anyone know of one? The BP station that used to do it (on the A14) no longer have the sign out so I assume they no longer stock it.

    Don't go to any bother looking as it's not vital, we have calor if needed - just if you live in the area and know of an LPG station.

    Download FILLPG, it gives prices, addresses etc.

    Yes, FillLPG is the one to use.
    If you can't get the app they have a web site with a map - http://www.filllpg.co.uk/index.php?page=lpg.php

    Filled up there three weeks ago on our way out of Norfolk. 49.90 per litre. Hope to fill up there on our way back as far cheaper than France!

    Asked at Calor depot Norwich and they will not fill motorhomes unless you can show you have a proper underslung permanent tank.

    As Stevec said.. Right here in Thetford it is very handy for me !!
    The BP places have all lost their lpg pumps now.

    Morrisons supermarket in Kings Lynn is the cheapest by miles (but it is a few miles out of your way).

    That is the problem with morrisons in Lynn, ok if you're in town but can be a pain to drive in to town if that is all you want when sainsburys and tesco are right on the A47.

    Yes, too far out of our way this time round. I think we will try Harvest or the A49 / A11 as we go past. As I said not urgent yet but as we are going past we will fill.

    I have the CoC from Autogas so wonder if Calor would accept that? It's an alugas cylinder not a tank.
