LPG Information

France – Tel: 0033 141 97 02 80 – Comité Francais du Butane et du Propane.

Adapters? – British cars use a different system (another euro opt out no doubt!). Most places apparently provide an adapter, but it seems good idea to buy your own.

Buy an adapter from Autogas.co.uk, Autogas 2000 Ltd. Tel: 01845 523 213. We e-mailed them to ask about the differences and this is what they said;

Three main filling systems are used throughout Europe.

The United Kingdom uses the Bayonet filler. France / Italy and surrounding countries use the French/Italian claw gun filler. Germany, Spain and surrounding countries use the 1"3/4 Acme filler.

Download a filler adaptor list which includes photographs (word doc).

Prices for the adaptors range from £6.33 for a Flush to Acme filler (for use in Germany, Belgium etc). This screws into the United Kingdom Bayonet internal thread and converts to Acme filler. Postage and packing within the United Kingdom mainland is normally £3.53.

They keep adaptors in stock and can take orders by telephone using a credit/debit card and can normally despatch goods by first class post the same day.
