BP Gas Light - The Lightweight Gas Bottle

Are you fed up with lugging the heavy steel gas bottles about? Or are simply unable to lift and move them as easily as you would like?
Worried about nose weight on your caravan?  Want a change from Camping Gas or Calor Gas bottles?

Then BP Gas Light could well be the answer to the problems.

Using BP Gas Light for caravans or motorhomes - weight is crucial so the cylinders are half the weight of the steel equivalent. You can also see the gas level and so plan ahead on the move.

There are three important things to know when you are considering using BP Gas Light with your caravan or motorhome.

1. Which BP Gas Light size will fit in my caravan? Different makes and models of caravan and motorhome fit different sizes of BP Gas Light. BP Gas Light is available throughout the UK in the 10kg size. The 5kg size BP Gas Light is currently only available through some Truma stockists. To find out more, use our Bottle Finder tool or call our customer services team.

Please check your manual or contact your manufacturer to find out which size will fit your caravan or motorhome.

2. How do I secure the cylinder in my cylinder compartment? Some cylinder compartments have mouldings or brackets on the floor of the compartment that are designed to fit steel cylinders. You can buy a plastic bracket to fit in your cylinder compartment which will hold both BP Gas Light and steel cylinders safely and securely in place.

3. How do I connect the cylinder to my caravan? BP Gas Light is fitted with a 27mm clip-on valve. This is much safer than traditional screw fit valves because you instantly know when you have fastened the connector securely rather than messing about with a spanner. However, many makes and models of caravan and motorhome are not fitted to take 27mm clip-on valves. A simple adapter kit is available through most Truma dealers. Contact Truma for stockist details. For more details, please download the guidelines in the document to the right.

 
This perfect partnership sees the lightweight, 5kg and 10kg translucent gas bottles, save approximately 50% of weight compared to that of the traditional steel cylinders when empty, giving caravan users the advantage of lower fuel consumption for vehicle towing or space for luxury.

The benefits of the BP Gas Light are huge, ranging from its semi-transparent appearance which enables you to view the level of gas inside the cylinder ensuring no more wastage of gas, to being approximately half the weight of its steel competition when empty. The BP Gas Light is easily manoeuvrable with an ultra solid handle to ensure an easy grip while offering total protection to the valve. The BP Gas Light is made of high performance corrosion-proof fibreglass-reinforced material and passes all European safety standards. The BP Gas Light bottle is also far more aesthetically pleasing to the eye than that of the traditional steel cylinders!
