In France at the moment, need gas so went to the pump, fitted the French adapter, opened the gas bottle and tried to fill but the gas escapes from between the adapter and the bottle. I have tightened it as tight as I can and it seems all the way on.
Any ideas?

It is usually the adapter not tight enough
If the bottle is open, tightening the adapter should make it leak when it hits the bottle valve
Is the bottle tap fully before you try to fill your bottle?

Just check that it has an O ring fitted to the male threaded portion too ?

It's law at filling stations that means they make them that awkward it's at least 5 tries before it works.. :ROFLMAO:

Hope you sort it

Make sure the O ring is big enough to make a seal. I bought a set off ebay when I didn’t know any better and the O rings were all miles too small, ie, not thick enough. Just a thought…..

Cheers!

Yeh wrong adapter but got it sorted now. The uk extension adapter is correctly threaded, fitted that to the bottle then fitted the French one onto that. 🤷🏼
When I went to pay for the gas I got a swearing though, said you aren't allowed to fill bottles anymore. Told them it was a safefill bit don't think they understood.
Thanks for the help folks. 👍
