I thought all non-breathable gas reducers were left hand thread. Mind you that was a lot of years ago so maybe the rules have chnaged.

I'm guessing that if Le-Dolly says his propane regulator is green and that for his butane is red, then he knows what gas he is using. :roll:

My personal opinion is that gas bottles, whether butane or propane, should never be allowed to be sited/ stored/used to supply appliances inside houses.
French regs allow only butane cylinders to be used inside as butane is useless in cold conditions, it doesn't develop enough gas pressure from the liquid gas. Propane cylinders must be outside by law.

Change to a propane cylinder with a red 37 millibar regulator - the setting.
This is not necessarily correct, my propane regulators are green and the butane are red.
I suggest that you check the threads and the pressures on those regulators. Propane regulators are always red -marked 28 mbar and the captive nut is left hand thread and will not fit a butane cylinder.

Firstly I think that maybe you should get your own story straight, you claim that a "propane cylinder with a red 37 millibar regulator" & a "butane regulators are blue/grey/green and are 28 mbar pressure" followed with "Propane regulators are always red -marked 28 mbar".
As you are seemingly having difficulties believing me perhaps a picture or two may equal a thousand words, try this:
