    Alicante as far as I can tell. The round trip makes it a bit pricey.

    On a recent visit to the new site I asked Costa the director if they would fit an LPG pump so that RV's could fill their tanks. I did mention that it would be a good way to attract RV owners and could encourage them to use the site. He said they were bringing this point up at the next meeting so I'm hoping that they will be adding an LPG pump facility at the new site.

    They do already offer LPG bottled gas on their old site so I think it will automatically be available at the new one.

    I can't imagine the regs involved in this, I would not hold your breath.

    Having said that, near here there is a fully automated LPG filling point in an unattended yard, just stick CC in a fill. So it can be done.

    Hi, Hilldweler

    Marjal already own two petrol stations and according to Costas the Repsol people have told him there will be no problems in installing one.

    So here's keeping our fingers crossed that they do...

    I have heard though that getting a bottle to start off is not easy and is expensive? :Smile:

    stop a gas bottle truck 10euro deposit. or just lok at the weekly car boot .
    some say they have problems but havent come across it yet. always meet someone that needs a bottle every year. just ask around. you do see them here as well. again check your local dump or gas bottle store they do sometimes have odd bottles . i got two maroc bottles and 3camping gas bottles for 6 quid a couple of years ago at our dump.

    The truck driver we stopped said it was not possible to get a bottle without an empty or a certificate of conformity for the system after it was inspected by one of their engineers, We were quoted between 160 and 200 euro for the inspection.

    We got our from a junk shop at 20 euro each.
