    Hi,

    We are nearly ready for the off but despite all I read on the forums I am still confused about gas. My van has the Truma auto change over system which runs propane. It has a fixed regulator but also 2 other ones at the bottle end of the pipes.Could some-one please clarify the following:
    1: when in France, can I just use camping gas or le cube with the right regulator?
    2: What about my fixed regulatorand the 2 other ones?
    3: Does it matter that le cube etc. is butane.
    4: And the same questions for Spain.

    thanks.

    confused ken

    Switching between Propane and Butane is generally no problem but you might find that the connections are different. Gaslow is the answer and then you use LPG available anywhere!
