Thanks Simon,
I got mine from the site that also issue the little green atlas, Go-AutoGas i think, its really good. I've not used sat-nav much before but its handy how easy it is to find a fill up & each location comes up on the screen if you drive close to it so you can be oportunist and keep the tank topped up, with it i wouldn't have run out of LPG on my way to Dover last year!


thanks to all for your advice

:D gareth

Have just started playing about with LPG POIs for my Tomtom ..

tried the one from LPG map .. 99.9% sure that quite a lot listed no longer serve LPG .. one I know doesn't even serve petrol/diesel anymore ..

the Autogas download is just that .. autogas ..

so I guess the only option is the Go-Autogas site .. have got their book which seems OK ..

are they as good as they appear to claim to be .. what is the likelihood of a listed location being incorrect?

Many of the locations are out by a few hundred meters for some reason.

I've often got to the indicated point to find nothing .. but ask a passerby and you get .. yeah .. just round that corner .. now I did send in 4 or 5 corrections to go-autogas .. but upwards of 6 months later they still hadn't moved.

I'm very unsure if it is worth renewing my subscription next time, especailly as they now only appera do updates every 2-3 months.
