    Grey sound like German bottles and the fittings will be different for both France and Spain and the bottles are not exchangeable. You will need to buy a new bottle and reg. for France .. if you go to Spain and it runs out, need to buy a Spanish bottle and regulator..

    long term, refillable bottles are the way to go .. either Gasit , Gaslow. or Alugas .. then you can fill up in any country at any Autogas outlet..


    If only going abroad for a few weeks then Calor propane either 6kg or if you can get them in, 2 x 13kg propane.. (red bottles)
