Calor warns on takeaway LPG

01 September, 2004

Calor, the UK’s largest supplier of LPG, is advising all stockists that supply autogas not to refill user-owned, portable LPG cylinders. The move follows advice from the Liquefied Petroleum Gas Association (LPGA) against refilling user-owned, portable LPG cylinders. The LPGA said safe filling of LPG cylinders required appropriate expertise and/or equipment. “Staff at autogas filling points cannot fulfill statutory obligations as they have neither. Were there to be any accident the site operator could be liable to prosecution.” The advice does not affect tanks permanently attached, such as to a camper van.
