Standard rented gas cylinders are not intended to be refilled by the customer - and much is said about the dangers and legal implications of doing so. We couldn’t agree more. Safefill cylinders are designed to be refilled.

Our cylinders feature:

  • Automatic overfill prevention device - prevention of filling past 80% max fill
  • Additional back-check valve if you accidentally forget to close the valve after filling
  • Tamper-proof fittings which only allow gas to exit when connected to an appliance
General LPG Safety Advice
  • Always keep your cylinder in an upright position.
  • Do not drop your cylinder from your vehicle as damage to bottles and valves can be caused.
  • Never change or store cylinders in the presence of naked flames.
  • Never store or use below ground level, as any leakage will collect at low levels.
  • Storage should be well ventilated, preferably outdoors.
  • Don't use tools to operate bottle valves.
  • Check hoses regularly. Ensure the cylinder is properly secured with hose clips. If hoses are damaged or showing signs of wear, replace them (using hose of correct quality).

SAFEFILL - Extensive testing

Safefill Cylinders are subjected to extensive testing including: cycle testing, extreme temperature testing, long term ageing tests and static load fatigue tests.

The most widely adopted inspection interval is 10 years. Periodic inspection in the European countries is done in accordance with ADR and ISO 11623. Some countries however, have 15 years inspection interval.

The refilling of rented gas cylinders is illegal and could see you prosecuted for theft; it’s also extremely dangerous. Quite rightly the industry has serious concerns about this practice and wants to stamp it out. So do we – and that’s why we designed the Safefill cylinder to be safe and easy to refill. We looked at all the issues identified by the industry and developed a product that’s so easy to use; has no complicated hoses or attachments that could be incorrectly used; has an integral overfill protection device (OPD); a secondary back check valve in case you forget to close the valve and tamper-proof fittings that mean gas can only come out of the cylinder when it is attached to an appliance.

Safefill gas is PROPANE

Which type of LPG should I use?

The majority of caravans / Motorhomes use either propane or butane gas to power their appliances. But which gas is right for you?

Butane gas is ideal for caravanning and camping during the warmer months. It can be used indoors all year round but is only suitable for outdoor use during the summer months, due to its high freezing point. 

Our propane gas can be used all year round outdoors, making it the perfect choice  who use their caravans / motorhomes whatever the weather. Our Lightweight propane SAFEFILL Propane ,

Take Bottle out of Locker

Place on a solid flat ground

Ensure tap is off

Connect the hand held gun

by locating the to spigots to the slots..

Twixt the gun to lock, some guns have an extra locking system

turn on cylinder tap

Press and hold in the start buttom, (normally green)

keep pressed in until you reach the litres required

turn off tap.

Release the lock and twist anti clockwise..

at this point when pulling the gun off you will hear a short blast of gas ..

Most guns now have a rubber shield to assist with this gas loss.

Then you can fit bottle back in locker ...  HAPPY HOLS !


installations Until September 2003, different regulators were required, depending on which gas was being used - butane being regulated to 28mbar and propane to 37mbar. 

Regulators were attached to the gas cylinder itself, with the low-pressure gas from the regulator then being taken into the caravan through a thin, low-pressure hose. 

These hoses were vulnerable to damage and age-related deterioration, and needed regular replacement (typically every three years). 

Sample „old style‟ regulators: 28mbar 4.5kg butane 28mbar 7kg/15kg butane 37mbar 3.9kg/6kg propane The introduction of the EN1949 European Standard for 2004 model-year caravans (from September 2003 in the UK) then harmonised pressure for both gases as 30mbar, meaning a single regulator now suits both propane and butane. 

EN1949 allows for either bulkhead or cylinder-mounted regulators. Convention within the UK caravan industry is to use a bulkhead-mounted regulator. Some continental-built caravans and motor caravans, however, may be imported with cylinder-mounted ones. Such regulators may not be compatible with UK gas cylinders without the use of adapters, or may need to be replaced with a bulkhead-mounted one instead. With a bulkhead-mounted regulator, gas is taken from the cylinder at high pressure via a heavy-duty supply hose, which is much more robust than the formerly used low pressure hoses.
