[Amel Yacht Owners] Viking propane cylinder


Mark Erdos
 

Paul,

 

There are very mixed reviews on the see-through propane gas cylinders. We purchased one for our BBQ and had problems getting it filled. A lot of propane filling stations will not fill these types of cylinders due to a recall that happen quite a few year ago. After several attempts to fill it we returned the cylinder for a refund and purchased an aluminum cylinder. It turned out to be cheaper for the aluminum one.

 

 

With best regards,

 

Mark

We habe to chnage our camping gaz cylinders now when in USA. I like the Viking see through cylinders in kevlar.

The 17 lb should not be any problem to fit in the standard gas locker in our SM, but the 22 lb looks very tight.

Has anyone tried to fit a 22 lb Viking has cylinder in the standard gas locker of an SM?

Paul,

There were several countries that have outlawed the see-thru tanks. I think someplace in the Caribbean and New Zealand. Be careful.
