Not the full answer, but the VAT on LPG for domestic use is 5% whereas LPG in the form of Autogas is taxed at 17.1p a litre plus 20% VAT, so your 34p becomes just over 61p before the forecourt adds its markup, and BP as always been an expensive option for Autogas.
It also depends on what the BP forecourt is buying Autogas in at, which may well be higher than your 34p a litre deal.

enough to know i shouldnt touch things i know nothing about ....
Surely there would be a way of safely filling up from your household tank?
I understood that liquid take offs were removed because of the potential use of 'domestic' LPG being used to fuel vehicles and avoid paying tax.
