Does anyone know what the availability of Coleman propane gas bottles are outside of North America ?

I'm refering to these: the top most green bottle. My camp stove and lantern uses it and it seems like you can get it in the UK at least.

I don't know for certain about this particular one, but Coleman products are widely available throughout Europe. If you have doubts, by the way, they generally available through ebay as well, so you can just have them delivered wherever you need them, thus not having to pack and ship them yourself (admittedly, I never tried this myself, and it may not work, but ebay doesn't say there's any restrictions on it).

It seems to me that the Europeans like to use butane/propane mixtures rather than pure propane. I'm also concerned about the fittings used. If worse comes to worse I can cluge something, but I'd rather not have to go through the trouble.
