Parts for adapter to fit LP (16 to 13mm) port on Espace?

After filling both our Ford Focus and Citroen C5 with Envirosafe "BP" leak stop and gas mix and getting very efficient result. I have noe discovered that Renault for some unknown reason have decided to use the thicker 16mm quick cupling that all other car brands (correct me?) have chosen to use a 13mm coupling on.
So to fill the AC on the Espace it looks like I need to order an adapter
Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/391729889796

I would rather not wait to get this done, and I think considering the price inkl shipping ~£35 it might be even cheaper to find the coupling and nipple and to make an adapter. So could anyone tell me the name / dimension on the parts I need ?
