Have you tried https://www.mylpg.eu/ , or asking on a local Facebook Group where to get Autogas near you in Derbyshire?
Can I ask please, is that because of a lack of knowledge or confidence in the system, or due to a fear of safety?I would put ours back to bottles in a heart beat. Bought the van with rechargeable already in (our first van so no knowledge) always hated the rechargeable ones
It's a combination of a few things. Yes the pop didn't help first few times. But use to it now.Can I ask please, is that because of a lack of knowledge or confidence in the system, or due to a fear of safety?
We've not had cylinders since our caravanning days which ended in 2005, and been on a refillable system ever since. It is so much more convenient, and safer in my opinion, especially with an auto changeover valve.
I do appreciate that the gush of gas when releasing the trigger at the pump, can be quite disconcerting to the end user, but I can assure you, it's not a sufficient release of gas to cause a Fire Safety related problem. I always wear gauntlet type gloves when refilling, to help protect myself from the possibility of a frost burn, a very rare occurrence here in the UK.
Don't know which side of spondon you are but if you are any where near uttoxeter, the shell garage usually has some even if it says not on the gas app things.Thank for all your responses; it's very helpful. We are new to motorhomes and our first one has the refill system. I have about quarter of one tank left and plans for trips coming up, so just preparing but it's disconcerting that the number of LPG pumps is so low. We found one at Asda, Spondon in Derby (don't tell anyone ) but they've been sold out for weeks. Another contribution to the issue is that because overseas travel has been so risky, we're all staycationing and LPG has been in high demand. Nevertheless, the filling stations are few and getting fewer from what I've read. I'll keep my fingers crossed that Asda gets topped up soon or I'm going to have to drive some big miles to get some. Many, if not all of the Exxon Mobile stations have been taken over by Esso but the ones I've phoned has dropped LPG. I just wasn't prepared for that but I'm hopeful things will work out. I'll keep you posted. Thanks again. Kev
So far as customers are concerned it amounts to a shortage. Whether the problem is bottle supplies or too few tanker drivers makes little difference if the LPG is not available when and where people need it. Having plenty at the refinery is little consolation if you rely on it for home heating and cooking.
