I have just bought a new Pennine Fiesta - previously had a Pathfinder - and need to know about the gas issue. Previously I have used calor gas which is fine as the regulator on the Pennine range is 30mbar. However we are going to France for 3 months so want to use camping Gaz. The regulator for gaz is 28mbar so the question is - can I use Camping Gaz in the Fiesta without any modification?
Thanks for your help.

Camping Gaz and Calor gas regulators are different, they are not interchangeable.

So assuming you are changing the regulator on you FC then ether gas would work.

the simple answer is yes. you can just change the regulator and do not need to change anything inside the camper.

If you mean you have a 30mb bulkhead regulator already fitted then yes you can connect a Campingaz 907 via the correct pigtail & it will work no probs.

If your local shop cannot supply correct pigtail fitting then you can get one here which will screw into this pigtail here.

Agree with Opensource, all you need is a pigtain that is an adaptor rather than a regulator. I no longer use Camping Gaz but always carry a pigtail just in case I need to buy a cylinder for some reason. I would agree that Camping Gaz is the right option if you are going for 3 months.
