    please, please, please!! give me a link for a list of lpg stations in Spain, we are going on the Dec 19th Plymouth to Santander ferry and staying for at least 4 months (possibly more), driving down to Almeria. Also any suggestions for the best breakdown cover, we have a 27ft american motorhome but quite an elderly old girl....she gets plenty of TLC but who knows!!!!!
    Thanks

    There is a download for the LPG stations on here somwhere.
    Regarding the breakdown cover,I too have an elderly RV and am with ADAC a German company who I find very reasonable pricewise with a good cover.Plenty of imfo about them on here.

    Yes, there is definitely a download on this site for LPG (GLP) in Spain, but, But, BUT!!! before you go do you have one of the new REPSOL connecting adapters for your tank?????

    Most of the stations and all of the ones that I have visited now have this fitting, sorry I don't have a link for you but the adapter you need has a non return valve built into it, I have seen it sold in Germany for about 35E but also have been asked to pay 75E in Spain for one.

    The fitting you want is a Euro adaptor here: http://www.autogasshop.co.uk/new-euro-quick-release-filler-adapter-150-p.asp

    Its been introduced by the EU to standardise fillers across the EU and will eventually replace all the others.

    Here's a poi for Autogas in spain or go to this map: http://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?ie...74623,-3.021863&spn=8.908127,21.51123&t=h&z=6

    Hi Olley, I may have this all wrong but that adaptor will not fit an American on board gas tank. The thread on the gas tank is on the outside of the filler point and not the inside.

    Hi Jim

    you also need the bayonet with an internal thread
    http://www.abp-accessories.co.uk/productindi.php?id=2007

    LPG Bayonet to ACME adapter with an internal thread. Threaded for W21.8mm fittings such as the Spanish Quick Connector, small Bayonet adaptor and small French/Italian adaptors.

    Hi Jim

    Yep, thats the one I have for the UK and then the claw type for France.

    So are we now saying that you screw the bayonet adaptor on and then the Euro adaptor into that. ?
