For anyone interested I have had an alimuimum LPG tank skid plate designed and powder coated to protect it alittle more. If your interested in more details or want one let me know.

Images to follow.
Presumably for the more traditional LPG tank for cooking, not the huge 85 litre spare wheel replacement tank that I have? ;)

Update on the fuel filler flap location for the fill point- the report from the workshop is that there is a void there and nothing to fix to; if a bracket was bolted or welded on there then it would be a feasible place to fit it, but the workshop did not have time to do it. I've gone standard, with a rear fill and gas point. I have to say it is very low, but workable.

A weeks camping and not used one bar yet. Faulty gauge or just a load of gas?

The Cadac is brilliant!! Paella while camping was a treat!

I’m 1/3rd down my 6kg Gaslow bottle after 1 month away, another month to go & I’ll still have a 1/3rd left by the time I get home. Been using the BBQ & boiling ring most days. It’ll cost me about £4 to fill up when I get home.

Pretty normal.
The other day (whilst deliberately trying to empty my tank, in fear that Propex wouldn’t fix it with it being full) I had the Cadac running for 6 hours, and the heater on with all doors in the van wide open; didn’t use a single led light of gas on the dial.

Has anyone successfully installed an underslung LPG tank on a 4motion without sacrificing spare wheel? (I am happy for it to be super-small, sub 16l)

Had a bit of a search but no luck in finding a 'yes' answer... I really want to do it!
Hi, wondered if you had an luck with figuring the 4m small lpg tank location. Surely not impossible!

There are a few plastic tanks for water that run alongside the chassis, but I've not heard of a LPG tank. I suppose you could have one fabricated? Propex workshops are really helpful +44(0) 333 0110 488

First time post!

I've just bought the CAK tanks that fit under the drivers side cill. Will make sure to have them fitted before the gas!

Also wandering about tank placement as I have a 4motion. When I bought the van in the summer it didn't come with a spare wheel so happy for Propex to mount in the spare wheel recess. But would be nice to keep it free if possible.
