When we are last in the Med. we bought the "blue" butane cans of gas and a reg.
with and adapted it to our "propane" system. That worked rather well. Fill US
cans is not even thinkable in the Med.
Enjoy Med. motoring..

Subject: [Amel] Gas in the mediterranean

Hi y'all, In the last few years, spent in South America, we have
used UK gas bottles. We have refilled these where possible, either with propane
or butane. Most countries in South America will fill any bottle, regardless of
of its origin, and where that wasn't possible we bought a local bottle and
gravity fed its contents into one of our own. Pen Azen is now in the Med and
likely to remain there for some years, sailing in all waters. In the brave new
EU world of Elf and Safety it seems each European country now has its own
bottles and won't fill those from another country. We would be interested to
hear of the experience of other Med boaters and what solution they suggest. Is
Camping Gas the answer? Are there countries where it's not available? Ian
and Judy, Pen Azen, SM302, San Carles de la Rapita
