OK Raymond, so your friend has a German cylinder with a German cylinder
valve on top which you try to fill in the US?  Order a US cylinder valve
that would fit your existing bottle.  But keep your existing German cylinder
valve cos' as you said, HK gas suppliers use the German spec. equipment.  We
have an adaptor which can make a German spec regulator compatible with US
cylinder valve.  If that is something that you think the gas supplier can
use on his filling nozzle, let me know.

Yes, HK stores can fill German cylinders just like that.
