I am looking at a new van with lpg underslung tanks.
Whilst doing some research.I read about refillable stations closing down.
I commented.That the morrison supermarkets still sell it. And got this reply, You can not use lpg from garages because its for cars.They draw the liquid of the bottom of tank ,, Not the top for liesure uses.
I did have a chuckle.....

A little knowledge or lack of it can be very dangerous. We have underslung tanks, ideal when abroad. Frees up the gas locker for all those must have extras. We have a separate fitting in the locker so we can still use a bottle if needed.

I might be useful to know from whom you got that reply...

It’s certainly true that the type of TANK that is fitted to a motorhome to hold LPG for fuelling habitation appliances (eg. heater, hob, fridge) has a VAPOUR take-off at the top of the tank, whereas the take-off on a tank designed to provide LPG in LIQUID form to fuel a vehicle’s engine will be at the tank’s bottom. (In the past, ‘dual pupose’ tanks have been available with top (vapour - leisure appliances) and bottom (liquid - vehicle engine) take-offs, but I’m not sure if these are still marketed.)

Sounds like there was a misunderstanding somewhere down the line.

Reminds me of 46 years ago.
Girlfriend and I ( now married )we’re camping at north very basically and with very little money.
Early evening a family turned up with a tent and after many attempts approached us to help.
Ours was a basic ridge tent. They had a new Trent with rooms.
Under car headlights we completed the job
They said thank you and gave us £20.
Blimey we were rich and had a superb weekend with bananas and cream.
They were amazing times.
