I'll add them to filllpg if I'm down that way and can confirm they actually still do LPG. I get all over the place with work so tend to end up filling up in pretty much any part of the uk. And with a tank thats only got 240 miles range at best it tends to be quite often. If you find they do work in the meantime either add them or post back here. The others may come in useful if you have to go slightly further afield.
I found them on Thursday and filled up at 75.9 ppl. It's a bit hard to find as the taxi depot isn't visible from the road, it's down the side of a large house. There is a large sign for the house telling you it's "Woodacre" but nothing to mention the taxi firm.
It's open 7 days, 7AM to 11PM and is CASH ONLY. You go to the taxi offcie, fill in the date, name and reg in a book then take a tag which is sealed inside a plastic box to the pump. When you've finished you go back to the office and fill in the cost and litres in the book and pay in cash.
They were very friendly and being the first time I'd been there, one of them came out to show me how ot use the pump. You have to enter your reg no in the pump and swipe the tag to activate it.
I've added it to filllpg.co.uk with as much info as possible.
Thanks for the tip. It was 2p cheaper than on the website when I fiilled up, but to be honest, I'd rather fill up locally for 2p a litre more tan have to do a 30 mile round trip!
Thanks for the tip.
I complained to Shell about the constant lack of LPG at their Junction 11 M20 services. Their response was that a technical issue at Portsmouth had resulted in short supply of LPG and they are having to prioritise domestic heating for supply rather than filling stations. Maybe "technical issue" translates as it's been colder than expected so more LPG has been used for domestic heating than Shell had planned?
Either way, even if they have LPG, the pump is still out of action half the time. Including the last 2 attempts, where I've phoned them up first to check the pump is working, that makes 3 successfull fill ups in 9 attempts.
I think I'll stick with my local supplier.
