Hi. Can anyone please tell me the procedure for filling with LPG in Spain? I have an adapter as pictured and just used it for the first time. However, I couldn’t get the nozzle to lock on to the adapter. A fellow Brit kindly had a look and thought it may be because the adapter is brand new. He held the nozzle in place and I was able to press the green button and fill up with no further problem. There were some instructions for connection on the pump, but they were too faded to read. Should the connection be twisted to lock as in UK? Any pointers appreciated. Thanks.

Dangerous stuff this LPG...ask at the Cashier Desk if using attended service station...you only need to be shown once...and wear gloves when filling and more importantly removing the adaptor...Frost Burning is very painful indeed...👍🇪🇦

If you’re filling point is at low level ie under the skirt of the van it can be hard to hold the filling pistol square to the adapter making it hard to lock on.

Could this be the same problem the grasscutter was having in this thread the other day?

Thanks. This is helpful. I got a plastic bag with loads of adapters but no instructions on which to use where.... I have Gaslow.

Wise words. My new "dn" adaptor was ok for the first half of the fill, then suddenly blew. Luckily no one was holding the trigger. The attendant tried again, same result. Finally he went away and found their own adaptor, blaming the rubber washer. Their adaptor worked perfectly.
