    As the title suggests.
    Can you get LPG in Morocco and if so how widely available is it?

    If you mean Autogas , no, it is not available in Morocco

    Bottled gas is sold everywhere, and is cheap, but requires a different regulator.. easily obtained.

    I used a BBQ point to connect the Moroccan bottle..

    If you don't want to demount your refillables, BBQ point is probably easiest. Just buy a local big bottle (not forgetting a regulator) and plug in. Simples.

    As an alternative, Gaslow do an adapter hose that screws into the fill point. The other end goes into an adapter for a gas bottle. I used a Spanish bottle ('cos I happen to have one) and the Spanish adapter that Gaslow also sell* which I used to supplement my Gaslow bottles. Now I know the type of thread used by Moroccan bottles I'm going to investigate screwing the Gaslow hose to a Moroccan bottle, which I'll just give away when I leave. Means I only have to carry an extra gas bottle around while actually in Morocco.

    * Gaslow also do a bottle adapter for Camping Gaz, the 907 type, which also happens to be identical to the small gas bottles used in Morocco, to screw their hose into.

    The local gas bottles all use the same fittings as Gaslow.
    I just bought a local bottle, and replaced my no 2 Gaslow bottle with it. Hose went straight on and no need for an additional regulator.
