    Our Warwick Duo motorhome has an external filling point for the fixed LPG tank. This is a bayonet type fitting suitable for Gas Guard and De Visser filling nozzles. As we plan to travel to Europe, mainly France, can anyone tell me please which adaptor will suit the majority of filling stations or do I need to buy more than one type of adaptor? Thanks.

    hi as far as i could tell there are possibly 3 different euro adapters.
    which may vary from fuel suppliers or country.
    there may be someone along shortly with a more definate answer soon.

    We came across both types, the external thread type and the internal claw type, it seems to vary, the more south you go the claw type seems to be the most popular, but where our friend lives (Britany) all the filling stations near him are external thread !, for the sake of £15 or so it's better to carry both

    We have the 3 adaptors shown and have found the need to use each of them at one time or another, and we haven't even been to Spain yet, so I would suggest getting all 3 to be on the safe side.
