Check with your surveyor, but I think the requirement is only for petrol boats

Not sure, we had to fit one to a diesel boat the other day the surveyor decided it needed one. We used one of the BEP marine ones which we usually fit on the petrol boats.

Our surveyor suggested that if the compartment that the tank is in isn't sealed (i.e. it has some way of 'draining' or venting hydrocarbon vapour, then you don't need a gas alarm.
