Is LPG at filling stations the same everywhere?

    New to all this, as you will guess. Been following various threads and now understand that Calor Gas and continental swap bottles contain different gas mixes that perform differently in cold weather. If I have a Gaslow system or similar, and am filling up with LPG at filling stations does any of this apply? I'm guessing that the mix is the same all over Europe? Andrew

    Butane/ propane mixtures vary in different countries and time of year.
    THIS guide will give you more info.

    Cheers Allan, that's really useful. So, I don't want to be arriving at Dover in midwinter with tanks filled in Greece.............

    Luckily, the BP garage in Dover ( near the cruise terminal) sells auto gas, so you could fill up there. I did yesterday, price was 58.9p a litre. Haven't seen it that cheap for ages.

    Often fill up there by the roundabout as you come down the hill on the A20 the one centre of town doesn't do LPG.
