After purchasing my property I had to pay out 180 euros to have the connections and pipes to the gas bottles updated as they were more than 10 years out of date.

In theory, the flexible gas pipes are dated so if more than 5 years old the gas company should refuse to change the bottles. How rigidly the gas companies apply the rules I don’t know.
