Question Camping Stove/Gas.

Hi there,

Has anyone brought their camping stove over from the UK? I think that in the UK they all work on butane or Calor gas etc, whereas here it appears to be all LPG, a combination of butane and propane. The screw fittings are different and the regulator, I assume, is different. Can you convert by buying a new regulator or is it completely different and/or we would be better off buying a new cooker? It's one of those with two burners with grill under so we would like to keep it if at all possible.

I'm not actually in NZ, but Australia, but faced a similar dilemma to you. We had a similar cooker by the sounds of it, and in the end, gave up trying to resolve the different fittings etc and bought a new cooker! Very irritating waste of money. AND the new one hasn't got a grill either!!

If your current regulator has a flexible hose then yes you can just get a new regulator and hose, take it into Bunnings (big hardware chain) and they will sort you out, for about $20 + cylinder as I recall.
