Thanks.
And thanks Neil.

Neil - are you saying the bottles you find at the side of the road have a socket that matches the screw-in propane connector that goes in the gaslow/calor bottle?

And Loddy - the 1665 adapter, does that connect to the 6010 adapter so you need both?

In which case is our choice either random bottle from road or camping gaz?

We're just trying to calculate how long we can last on a bottle!

We have an adapter that allows us to connect a camping gaz 907 2.72kg screw in bottle to our normal Calor connector. In Morocco we bought a full Blue bottle for 60DH (about £5.00) these are available everywhere some places in different colours. This is the same as the 907 bottles but a lot more beaten up. The last replacement bottle cost 10DH (about 80p) a lot cheaper than camping gaz at £20+ We always leave Maroc with a full bottle and when we return get the now empty one replaced. A bottle lasts us about 25 days but we only need gas for the hob & oven as we have diesel heating and a compressor fridge 12v.
The bottom of pans and the kettle get slightly sooty, but this year they didnít get quite as dirty and we have not had any problems. There are bigger bottles available but we donít have the space for them, a 907 type bottle and the adapter that sits on top are an equal height to our Calor 4.5kg bottles so it fits easily into our gas locker

Activecampers.

The simple answer is no not quite.

Your propane bottle will probably have a male end with left handed thread. I did not find any bottles in Morocco that would have been compatible with this conection.

Your gaslw bottle will have a smaller female end and this fitted the morocan butane bottles.

Hope this helps

Well - I *knew* I had a normal propane tail so was a little confusded. Just went out and checked...

I have :

as well as the float gauge, so in effect my normal "calor propane" connector goes into this, and this connects to the gaslow bottle.

So if I understand you correct, I could just continue to use this adapter with the moroccan bottles.

Now a, possibly stupid, question. The two connections to the gaslow bottle, one is the filler, and one is the take off into the above adapter. Are these both simple screw on/screw off? Or must you be really careful over how they join up? e.g. need to use any special sealing compound or tape etc?

Sorry

I didn't appreciate that you were using this adapter already.

You are right, the female part ( the Gaslow bottle end ) will go straight onto the Morocan bottles. , No past or sealant required, there should be a seal on the fitting.

your only problem might me is getting the morocan bottle close enough.

enjoy
