    I noticed on the map there is no indication of the LPG station in Malaga! My Tomtom says there is one there, which is correct?

    Hi Doug

    I understand the one at Malaga has been closed,

    Olley removed it from his map recently.

    Hi Doug, sorry, I had info a while back that their were two in Malaga, however Brian got a bit shirty when he couldn't find the one in town, and another poster said that their wasn't one at the petrol station outside town, so I removed them both.

    I was sent another list of Spanish poi's yesterday, and it list's one in the town close to where mine was, but I can see nothing that looks like a Gas station on google maps, anywhere in the vicinity, so unless someone gives me a positive GPS, I ain't putting a flag back.

    I also noticed, and momo confirmed that one of the gas companies is looking to open 13 new Autogas stations shortly, so maybe in a few years things will be a lot better.

    Hi judge will check it out.

    Hi Doug a site I haven't seen before has appeared on the repsol site for Malaga, GPS: 36.69028,-4.483045 You can clearly its a fuel station in google.maps sat view, but whether it sells LPG??

    If your down that way could you have a look and confirm one way or the other please. Its on my map for the time being as a possible.

    Hi Lebesset just had another look at the map and it isn't from Repsol, although it uses their map, its from spainautogas. SPAINAUTOGAS - ¿Necesita repostar? which as far as I can make out is a consortium of autogas companies including Repsol.

    Hi Olley, many thanks for the info. I too have looked at the sat view and see no tank but thats probabley due to an old sat foto.

    I will certainly check it out and confirm if true, my gas is good for about 6 weeks so I probably won't check until then as we are in a very slow traval mode, stopping at every wild spot we see. At the moment we are in La Linea, (Gib)

    I think the lat-long may be incorrect as it does not corrospond with the sat view, so when I get there I will check it with Tomtom's possition.

    Hi doug I have emailed momo to see if she can confirm that's what it means, seems a bit to good to be true as I have found another 3 stations. Burgos, Salamanca and Zaragosa.

    Hi just had it confirmed by a poster who's just been there that San Rouge doesn't sell autogas, but another has confirmed that the Malaga site does, its also in the middle of a red light area with some interesting sights night and day. :BigGrin:
