It was the grp cylinder developed by BP and originally BP Gaslight. Now marketed by Flogas. Who seem to be trying to become more active in the leisure market. It would be very good if they could really provide a counter to Calor. Flogas will take virtually any steel cylinder in exchange except CalorI have never come across or heard of a Flogas Lite, but it has been mentioned recently?
Now traded as "Gaslight", a product acquired I recall via Flo gas subsidiary McGas from BP, and now available [stocks permitting] via any willing* Flogas dealer, directly from Flogas or from original BP gaslight dealers. My local B&M retails exchanges.I have never come across or heard of a Flogas Lite, but it has been mentioned recently?
You and your colleagues ended up with an excellent product for our use, pity your sales team did not do as good a job at getting a higher percentage of caravanners and motorhome users, to realise it.As an aside, I had a passing involvement in the development of BP Gas Light.
As I said, I dipped in and out of it. It was quite an exciting project though and I felt it was a genuine innovation with practical benefits. I was a bit sad when I learnt it had been sold off. One small issue that did come up was that because the cylinders were composite they were quite good thermal insulators, meaning in high-burn applications like patio heaters the evaporative cooling inside the cylinder would eventually lead to a drop in gas pressure that was enough to prevent use, meaning a cylinder that was apparently still part-full would not sustain any use until it was left to warm up again. I can’t see this would be a problem in caravan/motorhome use though. One benefit I loved was that in a fire situation these cylinders were unexpectedly better than steel, in that they would not explode but simply go off with a bit of a pop. Another issue was that the cylinders quickly became very tatty-looking, which was at odds with their ‘lifestyle’ use (but then again, steel cylinders are hardly the last word in aesthetic appeal).You and your colleagues ended up with an excellent product for our use, pity your sales team did not do as good a job at getting a higher percentage of caravanners and motorhome users, to realise it.
