    I want to have a cadac, not powered by little canisters, we have gaslow fitted,2 cylinders, is there any way of supplying the cadac with gas from the bottles without having an external point fitted.
    Thinking of a gas supply from the bottles curled up in gas locker and brought out when needed. we do have a light gas bottle too but can carry it or cadac when taking the motorbike, but not both. We do have a single burner gas hob which uses canisters, but it's not a BBQ lol
    P.S. John isn't bothered about having one, but i get embarassed when he asks to put our food on other peoples !

    I think you will need an external point fitting somewhere

    I guess you could have a gas BBQ point fitted inside the locker.. but it would still be roughly the same cost... and to use it would mean leaving the locker door open.. better fitted outside.. it's not designed to be mounted in a locker..

    Hello from Devon,
    I have just got from Gaslow a fitting that fits on the gas bottle and then to your BBQ.

    without going via the regulator or do you fit one after the take off ??

    do you have a link please . ?

    The only one Gaslow sell is the Bullfinch which is plumbed into the gas line on the LP side of the regulator..

    Thanks all, think we may use the spare gas bottle for the time being, that's if I get the cadac at a good price.

    Then do the job properly. The bullfinch is such an excellent piece of kit you will not regret it.

    Cadac is good too !

    Probably the best plan..

    I use the 5kg Calor Patio Gas bottle with my Weber Q barbie.... it has a nice comfortable handle and not too heavy.. so it can be used away from the van.. on the beach or wherever

    used it everyday for 4 weeks while in France, sometimes twice and still plenty of gas..

    Sue, if your Cadac is the one which attaches to the blue camping gaz bottles then you may not be able to attach this version even to an external BBQ point as this particular model only works with the campingaz bottles. If it's one of the other Cadacs then your best bet (least hassle) will be to have an external gas point installed. IMO :)

    This is how I did mine, didn't want to dig any holes in the side.

    1/2 hours work, the only thing is, your gas door will be ajar while you're cooking.

    Not got the cadac yet but wont be getting one which uses camping gaz too expensive. Have been hankering after one for 6 years have just managed to persuade John it would be a good idea.

    There isn't one which uses camping gas! Don't know who's mentioned that but they will run on anything, propane or butane.

    I fitted a very similar fitting to a previous van. just a length of copper pipe tee'd into the gas pipe in the locker run to a tap and then a quick release fitting. not only could it be used to supply a bbq, but with a hose and bottle regulator made up to suit whatever country is a great backup for when lpg pumps are hard to find.

    There is/was a version of Cadac which screwed directly to a campingaz bottle only. Or I wouldn't have mentioned it :)

    The one I recommended you can connect to any bottom with right adaptor or to external gas point with 30Mbar pressure. I spoke to Campingaz and been told, they didn't test it on LPG, but if 30Mbar, don't see why not.

    Our friend uses a camping gaz bottle and a suitble adaptor, not the disposable canisters.
