    Gas in Spain

    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

    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. ::bigsmile:
