    everything is now regulated at 30mB , so have that fitted to use butane or propane

    in the past I have used butane and propane with 28, 30, 35 and 50 mB regulators and they all worked perfectly with butane and propane , so don't worry about it

    Hi the bulk tank will have a propane (lpg) regulator,no adjustment will be required to your cooker etc as they run on either butane or propane.Propane works at lower / cold temps where butane is more for summer use,struggling at freezing

    PS why not just use a refill adapter (propane bottles):thumb:
    MAKE SURE you read all about them before making up your mind :Eeek: plenty of info on here if you search :thumb::thumb::Rofl1::Rofl1: There I have said refill adapter :Rofl1: now where is my crash hat :Rofl1:
