    Posted this elsewhere so apologies for double posting if you participate in more than one forum.

    There are a number of lists of LPG supply stations in Spain but I just had a communication from someone in Spain that many are closed, don't, or no longer offer the service.

    Hence, my question - Has anyone actually filled a fixed tank/Gaslow in Spain recently and if so where?

    :Sad:

    Thanks Marie - we are in a Diddy Van these days (5.64m) so no problem for the Jerez one - can you confirm any others?

    Hi Keith go here:Google Maps

    Only the two stations around Malaga are a bit iffy. All the rest have been either verified by others or I have located them via the address and then confirmed via the satellite view. A lot of towns in Spain are now in high res. on Google maps

    Hi Olley

    I had already downloaded your useful list onto the Satnav but in an email Debbie of Desert Detours told me:

    'As mentioned previously those outlets that have been listed [and checked out by us] are closed or they no longer offer the service, we have in the past given the outlets locations only to be told by angry clients that they could not get refilled. Hence, unfortunately for us having to inform our clients that we do not know of any in Spain. '

    Hence my query about first-hand filling experience.

    :Smile:

    Gaslow refill bottles

    Hi, I was told its good thing to ask Taxi drivers as they often have cars running on LPG.

    If you have any other more positive info please let me know as I am planning a Trip.
    Manny thanks. johnny K

    I have confirmation that people have recently filled in Jerez, Valencia, Murcia, Granada and previously in Alicante.

    Malaga reported as iffy (by Olley) and another said 'we heard there was one at malaga - but there is not!'

    We will probably need to fill up next week sometime at the Valencia or the Allicante stations so I will let you know if we can get an internet connection.
