When changing a gas bottle always open the new bottle for a sec before fitting, this blows out any dirt , bugs etc that you may otherwise blow into your gas system at high pressure causing a blockage

On a similar taught , if you haven't used your water filler hose for a while ,let it run for a bit before filling ,gets rid of any bugs and stale water that may be in there. This time of year, maybe get into the habit of topping off the windscreen washer bottle , with your hose first.

Good idea, just make sure that you do not have a fag in your mouth at the same time or the bugs and you will end up in space. :happy:

Similar...haven't had a new one without cap. Still good advice should if one has no cap.
