Turned away at dkv station in italy for gas
 
guy at petrol in Italy just north of Venice refused fill up of gaslow system with external filling point. Said that unless it was for an engine, ie not cooking, it was against his license.

I was in Curioz Loisirs (big moho and caravan shop/sales/workshop - part of the 'Master' group) near Annecy and I saw they were selling Gaslow installations. I asked the bloke if there were problems getting refills in France and he didnt know anything about that nonsense. Never seen them in France before.

Very common to be refused on Italian motorway services, in fact it is the norm. Much less likely to be refused at a local station.

Now quite common to find Gaslow in France, generally accepted, Total staions usually have GPL, Spain OK, but Itlay has often had problems, not worth asking, we simply move on as one cylinder will last at least a week in summer as not using it much except for fridge. I believe that the sale of it is meant for automotive use ONLY.......

thanks for that Kev as we are about to depart on Friday for Sardinia and Northern Italy!

As said refusal is common in Italy and virtually no chance on the autostrada. Got refused on the way down to Ancona recently but no problems at the next one along. Try to use the smaller outlets instead of the big nationals, they seem to be ok in the main.

Stick an Autogas sticker above the filler and tell them it's an LPG conversion. :D

Actually joking apart I did have one woman in France refuse us LPG until I convinced her it was for the engine

Never been refused before ever, this was not on motorway just ordinary sp road.
Not too bothered as we have a full 11kg bottle left, but was just wondering whether something was going on in Italy and others had issues recently

Never had a problem with the external fitting on the skirt

Refused once because we had to open the door to the gas door because the fittings were inside

Now they are in the door of theMH

Italy is very hot on this and we have been refused a few times even though we also have an external filler..............luckily there is always somewhere down the road with a different view.

Apparently they had an horrific explosion/fire some years back when a motorhomer/idiot was filling a homemade conversion gas filling system.

So the bigger companies have decided they can do without the bother.
