When transporting BBQ gas bottles please be aware of the following precautions:

  • Avoid transporting bottles inside passenger compartments.
  • Do NOT transport bottles loose or lying down.
  • Always keep cool and away from flames, sparks and heat.
  • Do NOT leave bottle in an enclosed vehicle unnecessarily.
  • A maximum of two 9kg gas bottles should be kept in an enclosed vehicle at any time.
  • Ensure values are turned off firmly to minimise any leaks.
