I have a refillable LPG tank but will be on Turiscampo campsite in Portugal for a few weeks and just planning ahead Incase I run short on LPG, I have the connector hose which will allow me to connect to a local LPG bottle and connect to my fill point. Can all you knowledgeable funsters advise where I can obtain a local LPG bottle and do I need any adapters? My connecting hose simply screws into my fill point and I think the other end is a LH thread nut.

Cheers Dave

Are you thinking you can re-fill a permanent tank in the MH by hooking up the fill point to a bottle? You can't do that.

What you -might- be able to is have a switch valve, so you can -either- run from your fitted tank or a replaceable bottle.

I don't understand your problem, I assume you have wheels & an engine, there is a gas station with LPG just up the road near Lagos airport.
Thanks for your input!! If you can’t add anything constructive then can I suggest you don’t bother replying.

No, I know you can’t fill a permanent system, my question was simply is there anywhere nearby where I can obtain a LPG cylinder to use.

Perhaps you should look at Rule one of the Forum.

Looks like I wasted my time finding out where there was an LPG station near by for someone as rude as you.

My question was where can I obtain a LPG cylinder from locally to Turiscampo. What I didn’t ask for was a flippant comment regarding wheels and an engine as obviously I do have wheels and an engine, so maybe a refresh of rule number one for you is in order.

What you fail to understand is people have different ways of ‘motorhoming’ and when Iam spending upwards of 2 months at a campsite escaping the UK cold weather, my winter getaway is simply a get there and stay put and I don’t want to be having to move to go get LPG.

We all are different and I don’t appreciate your flippant comments just because you may prefer to flit around and not stay somewhere for more than a couple of days.

Happy New Year everyone :) (is that flippant?)

Your original post says you want a cylinder to connect to your fill point - which was confusing because that won't work. I think what you meant was a cylinder you could connect instead of your refillable - or have I git that wrong?

Happy New Year :D:D:D

I’m led to believe from previous posts that in case of running out of LPG on your refillable bottles that you can connect an external bottle via your fill point. Gaslow sell a connection pipe (which I have) for this purpose. The external bottle does not refill your existing bottles, just goes through them and through your regulator, hence no need for a regulator on the bottle, so I was just asking if anyone knew anywhere local to Turiscampo I could obtain a bottle.

Don’t need a regulator but the hose is only a hose which needs an adapter to attach to whichever bottle you plan to use

If you find a supplier how are you going to transport the bottle back to the campsite?

No it will not work through the normal filler point.
If it did partially work it certainly would not be able to keep up with fridge, hob, heater,water heater , if any were used together..

Just gas under bottle pressure entering the empty bottle and out via the van regulator, may take a few mins to “fill” the empty bottle and then away you go.

Can you get a filter from a Repsol garage for instance?

I completely understand the problem. When you are in one place for a while and are nicely set up on site completely level with all your accessories out, probably a full awning securely pegged and weighted down, last thing you want to do it dismantle everything to go and get filled up. This is why we have 1 x refillable and 1 x swappable Cepsa gas bottle. We bought the Cepsa bottle 2nd hand - there are always some available on ebay (upon relection we should have bought a Repsol as there appears to be more Repsol stations than Cepsa). There are many sites which either sell gas bottles or have a truck coming round to deliver them. The OP even has a car so swapping his gas bottle is even less of a problem.

Yes but he wants to put in in through the filler.
Sorry said slightly wrong i meant you could always connect exterior gas supply via exterior bbq point seems easy option to me - a lot less hassle quick connect fittings under £7 + regulator but he will have to buy 1 anyway for safety
