    GPL, are you wanting to exchange a bottle or refill a fixed tank. If exchange best look for a eupermarket, if fix3ed tank, look for gpl pump at petrol statons.

    You won't get a UK tank of any type on mainland Europe. This why many of us install Gaslow etc.

    You cannot exchange your English bottle in Europe as mentioned previously, however if you go to Bouliqueime on the N125 not that far from Faro, there is a guy who fills English bottles, he has all the adaptors for different bottles, so no worry there. As you turn off to Bouliqueime he is just on the right hand side.

    Hope this helps?

    If you are there for a while , I would think the best thing to do is buy a new or secondhand Portuguese bottle and regulator to fit and just change your pipe over.

    If he had asked the right question there are plenty of gpl garages in the Algarve and he would have topped up days ago. Also a quick question to those who he was camped near would probably have resulted in a sensible answer.
