Has any one got a Gasfuse fitted to their gas bottles. I purchased one , fitted it to the gas bottle on the van and it leaked around the fitting that screws into the bottle.

I returned it to the place where I got it and had it replaced. Now the new one has a slow leak,which I found when I pored soapy water on it.

They are a so called safety device.

Has any one had an experience like this?

A gas fuse should no more leak than the standard POL connector. They are made to the same specification. It's surprising that you are having problems with the fuse and not also with your pig-tails.

I run gas fuses on all my three current gas bottles with no issues ..... but, a few years ago I had a similar problem with a gas fuse leaking. It turned out to be a cheap imported 9k bottle. The mate bought a new Aussie bottle and the problem went away.

When the hose to the regulator is connected to the gas bottle and no gasfuse in use, their are no leaks. Tried on two gas bottles with the same result.

I will be taking the gasfuse back next week.

The leak could be in the bottles thread and not the gas fuse

The problem was the thread between the body of the gasfuse and the pipe that screws into the bottle in the centre of the gas fuse.

A bit of gas thread seal fixed the leak.

So it was the gas fuse, not the gas bottles or any fitting on my van.
