LPG availability in Morocco

Can anyone help? I have tried unsuccessfully to find any up-to-date info on places where I can refill my gaslow tanks in Morocco.
Has anyone any current info and list of garages etc.?

There is no refillable gas stations available in Maroc, we bought a camping gas adapter and bought a small bottle on arrival ( £6 ) and exchange cost ( £2 ) I think they are 907 size. buy them at the road side everywhere

You can refill at a site just north of Agadir.... we have done it. You don't connect to the filler point.... they disconnect the bottle, fill it up and re connect.

We have recently come back from Morocco and while we didn't need to refill while we were there, our fall back plan we were told was to buy a french pigtail then the bottles there are about £14 each - so no big deal to leave it behind when you leave

Back in 1969 I was on a gas tanker that took 3,000 Tonnes of propane to the port of Mohammedia - so I know it should be available there!!

We have an american set up but I believe with Gaslow you can replace the end that goes on the bottle with part no 01-6010/01-1665, see their website

I dont know if this helps.

We went to Morocco a couple of years ago and worked on the premise that I would not be able to get my gaslow bottles filled up.

This proved to be the case, We had heard of a gas factory North of Agadir and were told you will always see a long queue of camper there,. We didn't see any and it didn't appear to cater for a refil.
However, "Camping Atlantica" North of Agaidir did appear to have a refil service available.

Anyway the point I want to make is that the Blue gas bottles that are sold on the side of the road are dirt cheap and the fitting it exactly the same as the Gaslow so we didn't need any adapters, you just need to be able to get the new bottle next to the gaslow pigtail.

However, we were only able to get butane and it was was crap gas, it stank and all the bottoms of the pots and pans were turned black. We also sooted up the flu on the fridge and needed to decoke it when we got back.

Hope this helps

Have a great time

Neil
