Thanks Noddy, but could you be a bit more specific as I only know of the main bus station by the Market. Name of the garage or something?

Cheers.

As you go to the main bus station by the Market when the buses go in you look left you will see a small shop 20 or 30mtr back

One downside of LPG is that you're not allowed in many tunnels.

The equivalent of mot is not interested in lpg but you should to have the lpg system checked annually by an approved testing station who stamp a little book you are should to have.
Not sure of the price because I never look but it does vary winter to summer with everybody filling their domestic gaz bottles (oops we don't do that any more do we 8O )

we have done it many times and believe it or not Germany was the hardest in which to find LPG on the autobahns - we last did it in Oct 09 and we did think that it was getting better - we seemed to find more on the return route than on the outward journey! we just made sure we were full of both petrol and gas so that if we ran out we had an alternative!

Filing with lpg is either getting better or I am getting to know where and when to fill en route Bg U.K.
It is worth pointing out that you will need adaptors as mainland western europe have different lpg fittings to U.K and Bg,most garages supply them but some do not. There is still no LPG in Hungry on the motorway apart from on the hungarian/Austrian border to the best of my knowledge.
I only travel with half a tank of petrol to keep the weight down but a full tank is good advise for first timers.
My last trip with one passenger and seats down fully loaded vauxhall zafria cost £216. One simple way of keeping fuel costs to a minimum is to pay in local currency
edited to say costs include all vignettes except Roumania

LPG

Postby amron » Sat Dec 04, 2010 6:13 am

I haven't read all the 7 pages so sorry if I repeat a statement previously mentioned, but why do you not get your heads together and come up with a "LPG route map". It looks like some of you struggle to find lpg in other countries, I am really suprised how available it is here in Bg.
An ex of mine had a contract to supply it in the uk but it never took off however that was 25 years ago so maybe too new an idea for then.
happy travelling folks

If you use aTomtom/satnavs you can get POI's with all the LPG forecourts in Europe.
