1 Only real way to check
2 They may advise on the location of the Filler socket
3 Also how the various tubes will fit in
4 Perhaps you can buy the tank from them and save on delivery.
We had similar issues over locker size
I arrange to visit an installer and they fitted the same day/half-day.
The also fitted an external BBQ point and obviously tested for leaks (or should I say Leeks)
It also meant we fitted 2 larger tanks rather than a "Little and Large solution"
I am happier with 2 tanks One lasts about a fortnight Then we swap and so I have about 10 days to top up
Topping up does both tanks

Its surprising what you see when you're just mooching around isn't it.
I Know you haven't considered this (Thank Heavens) But for others out there PLEASE PLEASE JUST DONT -

Unless its a Properly Fitted & Plumbed Forklift type Bottle, Or Horizontal Re Fillable Bottle Of course.
THIS ONE ISNT !.....
Frightened the Hell out of me when first seen, But I hope They Stand it up Outside the Gas Locker to use it !. Although there doesn't appear to be enough slack on the Flexible pipework to do that does there !.
Looks Rough in my view, But Cost effective I suppose !. Each to there own if that's what they do.
I have to admit I HAVE done the same though (stood a Standard bottle outside gas locker & used) on one occasion for over a week in fact, when I ran out of gas on my Fitted RE fillable Bottle, & was given a half full standard 13kg Bottle for nothing by a mate when I was visiting him at his mooring in Keynsham last spring. But I was Parked up for the week IN a Yard, NOT on a road or Path with Public access, & would do the same again if needs be & was Parked in a similarly appropriate place for a while !.
A good emergency feature I think and Plus point in having Gas locker Re fillable Bottle as apposed to an Underslung Re fillable tank, in that you can simply connect the Standard Outlet Regulator used on your Fitted refillable Bottles straight on to a standard bottle if needs be.
But wanted to make a point via the pix I posted earlier to the Un initiated about actually NOT USING a gas bottle on its side that hasn't been designed to be mounted like that.

I had no problem with size but wanted to compare the Alugas with the RV steel bottle (Gasit are the same as RV by the way) which was a mistake as the difference in weight is surprising so I decided to save weight rather than money and the single 11kg bottle kit was around £80.00 more for the Alugas than the RV steel one. I have the same "old type" regulator as you do and they supplied me with a POL adapter so I could use it with the Alugas bottle, the same adapter works with the steel bottle. As someone as already pointed out the top shroud on the Alugas is removable.
I fitted mine a couple of weeks ago and it cost me £11.16 to fill it, a bit better than the £23.95 for a 6kg Calorlite bottle!
Autogas2000 maybe closer to you than Gasit, I'm not sure as I don't know where in Lancashire you are. Hope this helps.
