Do you have a propane generator? Some propane generators are fed with a liquid line.

Yep liquid goes to the vaporiser at the generator, vapour goes to the regulator and then stove, heater, etc. as the tank can't vapourise the LPG fast enough for the genny.

In big LPG powered engines (like cars and vans) the vapouriser is normally water heated from the radiator as well (one of the problems that can affect LPG powered vehicles in winter if the vapouriser is all gunged up is the vaporiser freezing into a solid lump and you have to wait whilst it melts/chip it off!

Yep - it's for a generator that requires liquid LP as its fuel. Vapor for everything else.

Aha

Excellent,
thanks guys, that's it. The generator. I didn't realize that the gen had it's own vaporizer as opposed to a regulator.
Mucho thanks.
