    I would like to take a spare 907 with me. I have a modern campervan with the bulkhead type gas regulator.

    Can I get a pigtail for the 907 or do I need to get a pigtail suitable for a Calor cylinder plus a Camping Gaz to Calor gas adapter?

    Soon to be bimbling down toward the Costa del Sol.
    The Campingaz adaptor is different to the Calor one.

    So, if I read this correctly if I have the right connectors ( including pigtail) I can run camping gaz through the bulkhead regulator.
    I'm only asking as I want back up for the calor gas bottles I have when travelling abroad. I have a couple of 907 cylinders from my tenting days.

    Yes.
    A Calor butane pigtail with the adapter Barclaybasher showed would do the trick. It's what I have with my Gaslow system (just in case it runs out).

    Thanks to you all. I now have a clearer idea.

    I used a 907 as a backup many years ago, using an adaptor that 'converted' it to a calor fitting. Trouble is that they don't last long and it's a very expensive way to buy gas.

    Agreed!

    But, it is a bit like being too low on diesel - as we were once on a Sunday in France - the cost becomes almost immaterial, and you'd pay almost anything for some fuel to avoid running out.

    Price of gas is always relative............ always cheaper in France and Spain anyway............

    Last year I 'torched on' a 50 metre roof with 2 x 907 bottles - 40 euros.............cheap!(y)
