  • Phill Statistics

    Hi Guys

    We are close to completing developmental work on a home refueller in Australia, with medium-term potential for export (including to the US).

    Our specification is for a fill speed of 4 cubic metres/hour (about 1.25 gge) from a standard domestic supply.

    Part of the project is to undertake some market research. I need some (reasonably reliable) statistics to get a feel for the US market. Does anyone know how many Phill units have been sold/installed so far?

    I'd be grateful for any information you can supply.

    I don't have statistics for Phill, but if your unit does over 1 GGE per hour, you have more market potential than Phill does. I have one of the larger fuel maker models and it does ~ .9/hr, but that's twice the rate of a Phill. I'm sure that someone on the chat will have some idea... possibly cngAZ (Dave)

    Good luck and keep us posted on the progress!

      If I remember correctly, the serial number of one of my Phills was around 300. So, I would guess that at least 300 Phills have been installed.

        My Phill is H0014XX so it may be well above the 1400 number by now. Mine is about a year and a half old.

        My History is 1 Recall and 2 failures so far with this unit...
        One Recalled Hose
        One Hose Leak Covered by Fuelmaker with a Replacement hose,
        One Internal Gas Leak Not Covered. Estimated Repair Cost was $1500 to De-Install, Ship, Exchange, and Re-Install through Fuelmaker and their Installers. Actual Repair Cost $0.20 for a new O-Ring at McFadden Dale Hardware!

        They truely need some competition!

          Will this be an outdoor unit or will it have a leak detection & blow-out fan such as Phill has for indoor use? Also, we assume it will use 240 volt two phase power?
