Which adapters for LPG

We have the standard re-fillable UK bayonet style filler port on the side of the van, what others do you need over the channel please.

Cup shaped one for France and I believe other countries and a bullet shaped one for Spain.

So far we've only refilled our system in the UK, France and Spain so not certain of other requirements.

I use UK Pub Stopovers, but then I would

They basically just screw in to your threaded filler point. We don't have a Spanish one of our own so borrowed the garage's own, they had 2 - one worked and one didn't so although they looked the same there may be a difference unless one was just more battered than the other.

UK one is good for Holland too, then the cup shaped one for France and Belgium, BUT they also use the externally threaded Acme thread type in places, we got caught out in Luxembourg.

The new Euro connector is Spain only until the others decide what to do, but we've got one.

I'm a bit confused I thought they went straight onto the existing bayonet fitting, but they look like a swap out.

When you take your filler point cover off to reveal the bayonet fitting, you will see that the centre is female threaded. These adaptors just screw into that.

As Neil says, you keep the basic filler point and just change the fitting, assuming that your filler isn't a non-changeable type.

I had to swap mine on the Discovery to give me the facility to swap fillers.
