    I seem to have managed to leave my water filler cap behind when we last filled up yesterday.
    Have been back but no sign of it, so I need to source a new one. We are currently in Porto Covo heading in the direction of Vila Nova de Milfontes. Does anyone know of a spares dealer in the general western Algarve or indeed anywhere round?

    as Alan said.. (y)

    I 'lost' the the diesel filler cap in Morocco, think I left it on the ground. :doh:

    .. As a an emergency cap, I used the lid off a Marmite jar. .. fitted like a glove... and not seen as it was behind the filler door.. sold it with it still fitted.. :LOL:

    If you get really stuck I am coming down in a couple of weeks. You could get one posted to me and I will bring it down.

    Many thanks for all the helpful and amusing replies. That's what is so great about Fun.
    As it turns out, I eventually turned up Camperserv via google and they have what I need in stock. Panic over, time for (another) beer!:)
