Dealing with LPG gas in different areas (butane vs propane)

How do the European boats that use LPG deal with being in the Caribbean (or vice-versa)?


It doesn't seem very practical to "bring enough" for the duration. I know the tanks are different and likely the regulators needed for the system.


Do people just carry 2 sets of tanks and regulators?

Our US propane stoves never minded the butane. We did have to make up filling pigtails to conform to local fillers.

For our usage, we carry two 9 kilo propane tanks, good for a total of ~ 6 months, depending on how much baking I do, and did not change regulators. (We also use it for heating shower water, as well as cooking).

Interesting. I didn't think local fillers would fill tanks unless they were up to required local standards.


We will only be using LPG for the stove and oven. Possibly also an outdoor grill if we decide to get one of those.


Thank you
