Refillable LPG Cylinders

So you would like to put refillable LPG cylinders in your Motorhome or Caravan but don't really know where to start? Then we can help.

Firstly there are two options you can either replace the bottles in your locker and connect into your existing system or you can mount and install under slung tanks much in the way the latest autosleepers do. Both kits will need a fill point fitted. This allows you to stay legal, as the important part is the the fill point has to be fixed.

Fill Points

The most common fill point (and one that we recommend) is one that is fitted to the outside of the vehicle, a 70mm round housing would be fitted with the the fill point inside it. The fill point is identical to those that are fitted on cars and allows you to fill them up at garages across the UK (or Europe with adaptors). For those that do not wish to make modifications to bodywork we can provide an "In Locker Kit" in which a fill point is mounted onto a surface in the locker itself. The fill point then connects to the cylinders via fast fill hose.

Locker Kits

If you go for a locker kit, then you can choose to either have 1 bottle or 2, both can be refillable or just one. So you could have 1 refillable bottle and 1 non refillable one, connected to the same system. If you fit an auto changeover you can get your system to use the refillable one first and when empty switch over to your non refillable bottle. We do our standard Gas IT bottles in 6kg and 11kg sizes and our premium 4 hole Gas IT bottles in 6kg, 13kg and 21kg sizes.

These kits will connect to your existing regulators or you can upgrade your regulator at the same time to include auto changeovers etc.

Underslung Kits

If you want the advantage of freeing up your locker or want to carry larger amounts of LPG then you can mount one of our Gas IT horizontal tanks. These are available in sizes from 20L to 116L. These have to be mounted horizontally on the vehicle, you can use your own mounting frame, or we supply ones to fit each size of tank. They use the same fill points as our other systems and connect to your existing regulator.
