Our experience exactly. We have switched back and forth in the same containers for years. Our Eno stove
states to change a pressure setting but we don't bother with changing it. Only result is very slight smoking with butane whereas the propane always burned cleanly.
As to the small containers being available in Indonesia
, can't really say. Never saw any but also wasn't looking for them when we were there in 2009-early 2011.
