Three Goto France 22

A slight panic!

The internet can be a marvellous tool and unfortunately, filled with tools! I googled for information on taking LPG equipped vehicles on Eurotunnel. One discussion I happened across has "experts" discussing the situation with tanks of LPG. Vehemently arguing that there was no way would any vehicle with LPG get on the train.

By then I had already invested a large sum of money to pay for the crossings. The Eurotunnel site wasn't all that much better although it does say that the ban only cover vehicles powered by LPG alone or dual fuel with petrol. Back in the 70's my Uncle Frank had a petrol Volvo state car with a gas bottle in the back and he could could switch from one fuel to the other as he felt like it.

In a "belt and braces" move I got onto the chat with Eurotunnel. Their agent called Chloe was very helpful. Confirming that domestic LPG, i.e. for heating and cooking, was okay as long as the valves were shut. This is the normaol position anyway for all gas bottles in a motorhome. Phew.
