Filling instructions

Our guide showing you how to fill-up
with autogas LPG

For your comfort and convenience, all our Autogas Limited LPG refuelling installations are located within existing petrol service stations, with most LPG dispensers situated under the forecourt canopy alongside the other mainstream road fuels.

Refuelling with autogas LPG is simple and efficient, carried out in much the same way as petrol and diesel, with a nozzle designed to lock onto the filling connector of the vehicle.

Once the connection is made, the driver simply presses and holds down a button on the dispenser until the required amount of fuel has been delivered or the tank is full.

Vehicle LPG tanks are fitted with a valve that stops the flow once the tank has reached its maximum safe filling level. Once the LPG pump stops, the driver simply disconnects the nozzle, returns it to the dispenser and pays in the forecourt shop.

Handy tips to aid safe refuelling

When pulling up to the autogas LPG dispenser, please ensure the vehicle is parked with the filling connector located nearest to the dispenser. Doing otherwise can put strain on the nozzle connection and refuelling equipment increasing the risk of causing damage and customer injury.

Apply the hand brake and switch off the engine.

No smoking, naked flames or mobile phones are allowed on the service station forecourt.

Important Safety notices

The use of an adaptor is not recommended. UK autogas refuelling nozzles use the bayonet style connection. The use of an adaptor should not be required and is not recommended. If your vehicle has a different style of connector we recommend you have it replaced with a bayonet connection by your local UKLPG approved installer.

Filling of portable LPG cylinders is not permitted unless they are fixed in the vehicle, have an automatic shut-off valve and an external fill connection.

All nozzles should be fitted with a nozzle shield.

Filling Nozzles

When connecting the nozzle to the filler point on your vehicle always check the pins are aligned, as illustrated on the right.

There are two main types of LPG filling nozzle used in the UK – Gasguard and DeVisser. Filling instructions for both types of nozzle can be found in the video clips above.
