    Hi all

    Planning a trip to Germany driving through Belgium etc, is LPG easily available in both these countries and will the adaptor used for France be the same or do you need a different one.

    Cheers Mick:RollEyes:

    Hi,

    Not sure about Belgium but if you are passing through France on your way then you could always fill up in France as nearly every main route garage seem to sell LPG together with most of the supermarkets.

    Germany can be a problem, you can certainly buy LPG but its not that obvious where, I believe there is a list somewhere of LPG outlets in Europe, If i can find it I will put up a link,

    Hi, Have a look at this link, if you page down parts of it are in English and if you click on the links it will take you to some maps


    List of Links and Informations / Autogas/LPG- and Natural-Gas-Vehicle - Forum

    hope it helps

    Hi Mick

    Belgium and Germany both use the ACME screw connection, the same as fitted to most American RV tanks. .. so no adaptor required..

    LPG is readilly available in both countries.

    LPG filling

    Hi, Just to add that we have been filling up gas bottles for 2 years now and always found it a lot cheaper in Belgium than most other countries.

    when i was in france in june, i filled up with lpg at a total (i think) service station. i was astonished to see acme/us adaptors selling for 8 (yes eight) euros! even considered buying a spare one, or perhaps more to sell on.
