Get an Autogas underslung tank, job done!
In our van we have 2 x 6kg refillable gasit bottles this being the most we can fit in the gas cupboard.
This limits us as to the amount of time we can stay on rallys and meets in colder weather. We have Alde heating which can use a lot of gas.
Any easy ideas or solutions as to how we can safely increase our lpg capacity.it's a swift bolero so no garage.
Cheers in advance
as spigot says with an underslung tank you gain a nice storage cupboard and if you sell on your set up shouldn’t cost too much, gas it do the tanks don’t know whether they wil do a trade in worth asking they may at least be able to use regulator etc,
Or, if you have the space underneath the van to fit a massive tank, say 50 litres, do as Ken suggests & flog your system & free up some cupboard space.
Another vote for under slung tank.
Our Hymer has a 44ltr tank factory fitted in a locker. All the original fittings are still in the gas locker and usable and a bottle can be used at any time if needed although with the 44 ltr tank more has never been needed
So - asking the daft questions as I like to do....
What rate are you using gas at?
We have a 25l underslung tank, which means 20l of lpg. For reasons best known to (well I don't know) we tend to do most of our camping in the wintery months, so propex and oven (baked tatties, etc) get a fair hammering.
Don't do that much compared to most here, maybe 4-5 weeks a year in the van, but the tank lasts us a couple of years per refill.
So surprised that a couple of 6l tanks would see you struggle at a rally.
I'm aware I insulated the hell out of my van when converting it, so that's gonna be an element, but it still seems like a lot of gas to be getting through.
I agree, it does seem a lot of gas. I've also got 2 x 6kg refillables and don't even get through a single bottle at a winter meet. My MH is a Compass, coming up for 13 years old, so not the best insulation on the market but I don't stint on the cooking or heating, etc. If I had the same problem, I'd definitely add an underslung tank and compensate as best I could re payload by ditching some stuff I really don't need... bringing far less clothes would help me for sure
