Leisure gas conversion

Postby nesty » 17 Feb 2010, 15:04

If I went for a Leisure gas conversion. Would I have to upgrade my appliances in my van (ie Fridge,Cooker & Propex heater) could they run on LPG?

Sorry if a stupid question, wasn't sure if only new appliances made recently could only run on LPG?

my 29year old T25, all original appliances (except propex) all work well on the new fangled LPG stuff, no modifications required. Tis a UK van though, I'm sure it's the same for westies. :ok

It'll be fine, the person fitting the leisure gas will see that it's done correctly.

The two most common LPG gases are known as Commercial Propane and Commercial Butane as defined in BS 4250.
