    Following the advice of my purchasing director who is currently sunning himself in Benidorm with his dream girl Pat, I have gone back to using mineral oil in my beloved Hymer.

    This needs changing every 5000 kms and, after my Spanish social trip, fell due before I will get back to my headquarters in Ansiao.

    So, as I was wondering where I could get it done around here, a leaflet was put under my wiper blade informing me of a local garage just two minutes from my Silves park up.

    A "sign"!

    And when I saw the owner was called JJ I knew I had found the place.

    In there as I post this.

    Hi, from the smirk on Anabela's face , I don't think it's a discount more an overcharge !!!

    If you had told me 15 years ago that I would pay a garage to do an oil and filter change, I would have said you were mad.

    Now... no problem... one week parked at Silves and I have easily saved enough to be willing to pay to have it done for me. (y)

    Did you tell em you are a funster garage inspector on tour to wangle the discount per chance? When travelling abroad always drop into the booking in conversation at a hotel that I am a highly regarded member of Tripadvisor...works for us!:D
