Using LPG On The Move


(Halifax)

Hi,

We have a catering van, a mobile jiffy that has a lpg oven on the back, and lpg burner that keeps the water hot.

I am wanting to know if we can keep the oven running while we are travelling from one stop to the other so as to keep the food and water hot?

Any help and advice would be much appreciated.
Regards and thanks,

Mandy

Thankyou all for your comments, we have since spoken to a few people who actually run these vans and they all keep the burners running while travelling, fortunately we have now changed our van to a hot air blowing oven, as we were very put off at the thought of running the van with the burners on.
Regards and thanks,
Mandy

simple answer NOT ON YOUR FECKING NELLY

LPG is extremly dangerous

IF , G-D FORBID YOU HAD AN ACCIDENT EVEN IF SOMEONE WENT INTO YOU THE RESULT OF HAVING LPG RELEASED COULD CAUSE A MINOR INCIDENT INTO A SERIOUS LIF THREATENING ACCIDENT

PLUS OF COURSE IF YOU DID AND THE INSURANCE FOUND YOU HAD IT ON ,, YOUD BE LIABLE IN FULL AND WOULD BE DROPPED LIKE A STONE BY ALL INSURANCE COMPANIES

LPG Equipment Safety
by: David

Hello There,

Can’t say that I know too much about the workings of a Jiffy Van, but as far as I’m aware these vehicles have their own fridge and heating systems.

In general it’s not safe to travel with any LPG equipment running as this is a hazard. Suppose you are driving and then have an accident of some sort,

I don’t think you’re insurance will cover you - so it’s not recommended that you do this.

Regards,
David
