    Do you have any issues with filling stations disallowing this?

    I have never had a problem but I have always persuaded someone to take me in a car (rather than walking). There is not usually a sign disallowing it (like in the uk) so it may even be legal :-)

    Don't forget you have to be very carefull to but in the correct amount, I always make sure the cylinder is empty and fill to around 80%

    Searched in vane looking for one of these adapters, I'm obviously putting in the wrong words. Can anyone supply a link please.

    Butagaz Cube. Refills in all filling stations!!

    I'm pretty sure that refilling your own bottles is, in Spain and France, interdit, but I've known of people doing it in Italy and Portugal and it's probably quite acceptable here in Greece (where there are an increasing # of LPG refilling stations)
