    Hollis & Brown, Peterborough did mine.
    Very happy with their work.
    Maybe a little too far for you?
    No doubt someone will be along later to say DIY [but I'm no DIY'er, and it's gas!]

    Eddie Van Bitz did mine, and you could couple it with a lovely two or three day break at Cornish Farm

    You might find you can't do this , but it really is a simple job much like changing a normal cylinder so couldn't you find a friend or neighbour who could do it for you(y)

    Chaser is right. I fitted the gas-it system in 2 hours. They have video's on You tube.

    It's a breeze.

    They did ours and we are really pleased with it. They fitted a bigger cylinder than was originally there as there is no need to have the handles on the cylinder to lift in and out* - and we were able to stay in their yard overnight. Really nice people and highly recommended.

    *their cylinders are designed so the lifting handle comes off - they are held on with a few nuts and bolts. We could have fitted it ourselves but were unsure of drilling through the plastic skirt. A mistake would have cost far more than the system plus the fitting!

    Another shout for Autogas 2000. We have just had an under slug tank fitted by them. They dropped us off at the train station. We had a day in York then picked up again and all finished when we got back. A very professional and friendly company. I now can carry more gas than before and fill up much cheaper than Calor. It will also be much easier to fill up in other countries. I would and do recommend them.
