    Some people had problems last year getting fixed up with a Spanish bottle. The official route was costly and lengthy.

    I went to a caravan accessories shop today where my mate got a bottle without any problem. He had to show his passport and give the address of the campsite. He paid 40 euros and got a CEPSA bottle (full) and a regulator.

    The assistant explained that he was allowed to do this for Butane but not for Propane where a registration document from the gas company is still required.

    For those of us who do not intend to stay anywhere really cold this would seem to be an improvement.

    The first bottle we got was butane but found it burned very dirty so when it was empty we exchanged it for a propane so if you want propane instead of butane you may be able to exchange your bottle too.

    We bought our original one off a car boot and cost us 8 euros.
