    They're illegal to use! Oh no they're not! Oh yes they are! Oh no they're not!

    Hopefully that should save some time....

    "with non return valve for added safety".

    What was it Frank Carson used to say? Ah, yes, "It's the way I tell 'em" :rofl::rofl::rofl:

    There is saving money, and then there is stupidity. I'm tending towards the latter for this one.

    Note - you are only supposed to fill to 80% says the ad. But how do you know when you get there?? The proper refillable bottles all have cut offs at 80%.

    They use quantity as a measure . Generally 12 litres to a 6kg bottle at 80%
    Its not idiot proof or fail safe hence illegal and stupid.

    a brilliant way of ensuring more garages refusing to authorise lpg pumps when a motorhome pulls up. One of the most stupid things for people to sell pretending they are safe.

    Do a search for @Snowbird s thread about getting freeze burns from a propane fill gone wrong. should tell you all you need to know about messing about with propane and equipment that doesnt meet safety standards

    i use something similar all the time. legal? don’t know not been caught yetttttt. filling bottles is not that straight forward, lots of issues. get it wrong and you could have a serious accident, burns, fire explosion, death so if you need to ask the question then imho leave it alone.
