LPG Tank Installation and LPG filling points.

There are two main options on autogas automotive tanks available- cylindrical or toroidal (ring) the later would fit in place of the vehicle spare wheel.
With some vehicles it is possible to remove the original manufacturers petrol tank and to install a smaller, fabricated petrol tank with a suitable cylinder under chassis.

External LPG fillpoints.

Filling point is located on the outside of the vehicle usually through a panel or skirt side. The filler is a UK connection and with our conversion can be adapted with simple screw in adapters to fill in other countries while touring. Colour coded fillers can be organised but these we will require a paint code for and will have to be painted to match the car at additional cost
