    I have little room in my cabinet so want to put my FE under my bed, but this means lying it down. will it still work, or not?
    Thanks

    No, not recommended.
    The co2 in a fe at pressure is in a liquid form.
    Laying the fe down may result in liquid co2 been forced from the fe.

    it'll work, but no pressurised liquid gas bottle should be left lying down. beware!

    you should be fine. just push it a tad more from the fine tuning valve. or what ever config your reg has. in stead of 1 bar go to 1.5
