    I assume for Gaslow and supplies are readily available at supermarkets. Filled up at E.Leclerc in Boulonge, Achen at Le Treport and Carrafoure. You will need an adaptor but getting gas is no problem

    perhaps if you looked for GPL you would have better luck :Smile:

    but , as stated , it is everywhere [ presuming you have an italian cup adaptor ]

    if you see a leclerc supermarket selling it , you won't find cheaper locally

    Hi Wynnie
    be careful were you attempt to fill up with GPL . Some garage forecourts have very tight entrances / turnings into where all the pumps are, especially the supermarkets.
    We try to reccy the place from the road first.
    We remember having a chat with you outside your van on Southport Pleasureland car park earlier this year.
    We paid between 60 & 63 cents / litre in sept/oct this year.

    regards

    Allen & Eileen

    Entering France from Spain I topped at the first French Mway Service Area to fill up with LPG.

    As I'm male I don't read instructions:Blush:

    Did what I do in the UK - connected up and pressed the red button. No gas so repeated actions several times.

    Wrong

    The red button was the emergency stop button and all the service area pumps shut down for 10 minutes when it is pressed. :Eeek:

    It's amazing how small you can feel with 20 pairs of French motorists' eyes boring into you.
