    If you download the Intermarche Carburants app it provides locations of their sites which sell gpl and current prices.

    My LPG.eu is not totally accurate, though very useful

    Best to fill up before empty

    Motorway services are best bet

    If you have 'All the Aires' there's a list of LPG locations in the back, should you not happen to pass one. We tend to top up soon after we go onto bottle 2. Don't seem to use much even though we eat in more than out, even in 'inclement' weather.

    I have a LPG POI on my satnav and it find 16 LPG outlets within 10 miles of Rennes. Since you are south of Rennes try E-Leclerc at Rennes Cleunay. (48.103968, -1.713700). Near to Junction 9 of the N136. Street view shows a 3.6m height barrier.
