Anybody got gas near Gatwick?

#1 Post by DodgeRover » Tue Mar 13, 2018 9:58 pm

No auto gas that I can find in Sussex or Surrey apart from one station (Earlswood) with such a wierd pump it won't fit our vehicles, even they say they'll run out in 2 days.
Anybody know anyone private with their own tank who will sell me a fill up? Or a hand pump I can borrow and I'll fetch a 47kg bottle?

This is getting a bit desperate now as I can't work without the van and it's awful to drive on petrol, for off road use what adaptors would I need to run off an upside down bottle?

There's a Morrisons just south of Gatwick somewhere off the M23. I think it's either the first or second exit off the motorway after the Gatwick turn, turn right if heading south and immediately right again and down a long hill through a housing estate. I use it to fill up for the return journey whenever I've dropped someone off or picked them up from Gatwick. It isn't shown on Filllpg (or if it is, I can't find it), but it might be one that has been missed somehow.

It's not a Morrisons anymore, I think its an Esso now (Broadfield service station or similar) quite near Peas Pottage services - both are out :(

Thanks though.

Edit beat me to it!

That Morrisions closed some while ago, theres now a new store in the town centre with no petrol station - I had issues trying to find the gas station and when I did find it found as you have that its now Esso (think it was closed for a while) But does have gas pumps, even if the tanks are empty.

It might be worth calling Flogas Rowfant depot to see IF they still have gas - they were on filllpg but aren't now, but that might mean someone has deleted them accidentally or for stupid reasons or it may be they no longer have a tank. Otherwise try phoning round those that are still showing gas on fillpg and see if you get any luck.

Flogas Rowfant no longer have an autogas pump, went in yesterday, they had it taken out in November as they weren't selling enough - that's because they're never open outside work hours :(

Same problem with calor in Oxford. Stupid location and closing at 430 meant they never sold much and theirs has been gone a while now.
