    I have gaslow and whilst I did not fill I did examine a pump and its the wedge type adaptor from gaslow that I would have need to screw in.

    Thanks for the replies::bigsmile:


    I have one of those Jim, glad to find out where it's for:thumb:

    How does the availability of LPG at filling stations in France compare to the UK?

    No problem finding LPG ( GPL ) in France, it's widely available, perhaps even more so than the UK..

    Fill up with gas on the autoroutes - there are not too many gas pumps elsewhere in rural France!

    Hi Doug ..

    yes, that's the Acme Screw, standard on yank LPG tanks.

    incidentally it's the Acme screw that's used in Belgium, so RV s don't need an adaptor.
