    Hi all

    Have a single 11kg Alugas cylinder with external filler fitted to the van, have just purchased an additional 11 kg cylinder.

    Advice please, what fittings and hoses do I require to connect it up to the system I have. Not bothered about an auto changeover valve.

    Many thanks in advance:thumb::thumb::thumb:

    If you give this guy a ring, we have always found them very helpfull.
    We have a Gaslow system and when we were using them to fill our bottles up we found one of hoses damaged, they sold us a new pipe and fitted it free while we waited.


    Hope this helps

    We had our first Autogas cylinder fitted by Dave Newell, who did an excellent job, but some months later found we needed a second at short notice when we didn't have time to go to Telford. Living close to Thirsk I contacted Chris Wise at Autogas 2000, who was very helpful and fitted us in for the work within a couple of days, also excellent workmanship.

    If you do go there and approach from the A19 via Thirsk (rather than from the A1) the sign is a bit difficult to see because of a big tree (it's on the left just before you see Carlton Service Station on the right; putting YO7 4NJ into Google Maps gives exact location).

    Hello Stewart. I'm sure Chris can advise you on the fittings you need.

    Would have to agree... I had great advise from the good people of Autogas when I was looking and putting out feelers..
    And the parts they supplied were spot on with no extras added that were not needed..
    People I would trust in other words :thumb:

    An update, met up with the chap selling the 11kg Alugas Cylinder and boy did I win a gold watch, the cylinder was only fitted 5th December 2012 have certificate and warranty, not only that it is full and has never been used and he threw in the hose and tee piece to couple with other cylinder my filler all for £110. :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    I'm well chuffed (he's selling as getting rid of van):BigGrin::BigGrin::BigGrin:

    So now I just need to sort myself an additional hose and tee piece for the regulator and possible a changeover valve. :Smile:

    Thanks to all for your advice much appreciated.
