Or is the system suchthat you have to request them to start the pump?

Don't know about Italy Geoff but in France n Spain it's quite common for the person in charge to have to ok the use of the pump.

My own experience in Italy was that it was a 24hrs operation and I should have been able to do it entirely myself. But I didn't realise I'd to press another button at the card machine. The man came over n did it for me but it was after that that he started to say I shouldn't be having it.

LPG pumps in Italy are generally served by an attendant, as are half of the fuel pumps (watch out cos they cost more).

I had one experience of having the lpg filled by an attendant whilst giving me a long lecture about it being illegal, in Italian, of which I don't speak a word, but I got his drift!

Just back home but wanted to bump this issue.
I was turned away 3 times and did not try again as I has a full 11 kg bottle and was going to Germany so I filled up there.
As I said these were major service stations who said there was an embargo on motorhomes.
Was I just unlucky wrong place wrong time

The message is just to be wary that you might be turned away in Italy,especially at the large motorway stations.So don't leave it until the last minute..............you may get an attendant who doesn't know or doesn't care or you might get turned away.
