16.4oz propane cylinders

Hi all,

We've recently been given a camping stove (Camp Chef Everest MS2HP), which is a North American model, and need to find some propane cylinders.

Here's the fine print:

Quote:
"NOTE: This appliance is set to use 16.4 oz. disposable propane cylinders. Use only cylinders marked propane. Disposable propane cylinders must be disconnected from the stove when it is in storage. Refillable Bulk LP-Gas Tanks with a maximum capacity of 20 pounds may also be used with an optional bulk tank adapter hose. (Use Camp Chef Model HRDSP to connect to the bulk tank.) Refillable propane gas cylinders must be turned off at the LP-Gas supply cylinder when the stove is not in use. The LP-gas cylinder(s) used with this stove must be constructed and marked in accordance with the specifications for LP-gas cylinders of the U.S. Department of Transportation or Transport Canada, CAN/CSA B339."
I'm only now discovering that the cylinders sold here (CH/FR) are not the same fit. So I suppose I have two questions: (i) is it possible to buy these cylinders on our side of the pond, and if so, where?; or (ii) is there a converter that would do the trick?

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: I found a couple adapters here http://www.actionoutdoors.co.uk/outd...cessories.html --- maybe this is the way to go?

EDIT2: Will purchase the Edelrid Valve Cartridge adapter. There is also the (slightly more expensive) Edelrid Puncture-Style Cartridge Adapter, and people have said that, with these two adapters, one will be able to fit any cartridge onto their screw-fitted stove.

Hi, I have a similar problem and was wondering if the adapter fix ended up working out for you. Thanks!

Re: 16.4oz propane cylinders

You might find something in the Campingaz line (Coleman Europe). The bottles (many models) are sold at Jumbo. They might have adaptors/replacement parts as well.

Here is a page link that might get you started with your research. Page can be in DE or FR.
