If you look on the tank I bet it will say somewhere 60ltrs. Thatís why there is 47 or 48ltr fill capacity recommended as that is 80% if the total space which is considered safe.

Its more than that. If you increase the pressure, it will become more liquid, and some liquids can be compressed more (by additional pressure).

Obviously, the more you put in above somewhere in the region of 80-90%, the pressure will increase dramatically.


Assuming I've remembered my O Lovel Physics properly - it was an awful long time ago ;D

I'm not sure you have.  ;)The liquid lpg is not significantly compressible and the pressure is pretty much unrelated to the fill level. It sits at the vapour  pressure of the propane at whatever temperature it's at. Pretty much like the boiler on a steam train, it behaves the same regardless of the fill level. As the liquid takes up space the vapour condenses to equaluse the pressure. The 80% limit is there to accommodate expansion as the liquid warms up, because if there isn't room for the liquid you do have a problem. :o

I once filled a 80 litre tank to 80 litres and it drove in on gas,
yes some pumps can overpower the cut off valve,

How many are driving around with small leaks that are venting to atmosphere? You don't know, so don't pretend you do.  ;D

Not sure you did when you repeated the Physics lab experiment of filling a tin with gas from the unlit bunsen burner, put the lid back on which has a small hole in it & ignite, but you were only meant to blow the bloody lid off, not the doors, roof & walls. :-[ :-[ :-[ :-X :-X :-X

It's OK if they're dry.  If your farts are lumpy and wet, you should see a Dr!  :)

No chance,we are talking very little due to that, itís the simple fact that it is a sixty litre tank.
