Conversion kit for CampinGas propane/butane bottles.

If you are heading to the Mediterranean, you probably found from the internet that american style propane bottles are extremely hard to get filled there. After wasting a lot of time trying, I converted to the expensive but available everywhere in the Med "CampingGas" propane/butane bottles. The kit contains the valve that screws on the Camping gas bottle, the regulator and a short 1/4" ID hose. Just splice it in with 1/4" "hose mender" double barb. Bottle also available (free) for pick up only in Tampa, FL. Spent $140 in Spain. Will sell for $40 plus shipping.
Also selling 2010 cruising guides for Med, Portugal, Adriatic (777 harbors..), Greece and Turkey.

Hi Capstanda,

If it is still available I am very interested in your conversion kit. If possible, I would also like to see a picture of how you did the splice junction.

Thank you!
