I'm a new to the campervan Club , as I only bought mine about two months ago. One of my gas bottles is empty and I am trying to get find a source, my issue is that all the gas suppliers I have been to so far do supply propane but not with the correct ( for my van) connector on top . I have attached pictures of my empty cannister with the regulator. Can anyone point me to a supplier in galway or surrounding areas that can supply this.

I think you should change the regulator too, get the screw on type, it's much easier to get bottles, I don't think I've ever seen one like that, is your van post 2004, if so it should have a built-in regulator and you will only need a pig tail
Pop yourself into Martyn’s Fuels on the Tuam Rd, right next to Walsh’s Heating & Plumbing and get your gas there. Then pop into Walsh’s and get yourself a regulator to match if you van’s one doesn’t. Your only talking €6 ish. Hold onto your old regulator, you never know when you might need it again.
I have never seen a regulator like that. I notice the 50mbar sticker which seems very high pressure. Mine is only 30 or so. Might need to be careful how your equipment in the van reacts to a lower pressure regulator being put on. Im no gas technician but I think that may have caused some of the problems I had with my original gas boiler when I switched to a slightly higher pressure regulator. Go with propane if you can as it freezes at a much lower temperature than propane. So propane makes more sense in Ireland than Portugal!
That looks to me what we would call patio gas ,my daughter got a new BBQ in Woodies recently and the regulator look exactly like that one in the picture .just take off the clip and fit a propane regulator.
So if the OP’s regulator does in fact fit the patio gas cylinders, available at B&Q and other outlets, could she not just get the patio gas? Patio gas is just Propane, so she would have the benefits of winter usage, as well as being able to keep the original regulator.
Just get a yellow butane bottle and you should be OK
When we bought the first Motorhome it had the same regulator as yours and no gas cylinder, I thought it was the normal yellow butane gas bottle which I used in it for five years without any problem, summer, winter and it never froze either. The first I heard of propane was when there was a red cylinder in the current van.
True enough, as Chausson puts it, just get the gas that fits. Worry about operating temperatures if and when it ever becomes an issue.
