    Fuel in Spain

     

    Gasoline

    • Premium unleaded (Gasolina Sin Plomo 95 / Eurosuper plus 95) and Superplus 98 (Gasolina Sin Plomo 98 / Super plus 98) are readily available.
    • Note: the Spanish names for premium unleaded and diesel are very similar: gasolina means premium unleaded and gasóleo means diesel
    • For older cars that still require leaded gasoline, a lead-substitute can be purchased at gas stations that may be added to the gasoline.

    E85

    • E85 is a biofuel mix of 15% gasoline and 85% bioethanol that is exclusively intended for special flexifuel cars.
    • Note: E85 is not suitable for normal petrol cars. If you accidentally fill up with E85, then definitely do not drive further and have the fuel removed to prevent damage.
    • E85 is available at a limited number of gas stations.

    Diesel

    • Diesel (Gasóleo / Diesel / Aceite Diesel) is readily available.
    • Note: the Spanish names of premium unleaded and diesel are very similar: gasolina means premium unleaded and gasóleo means diesel

    LPG

    • LPG (GLP (Gas Licuado de Petróleo) / Autogas / Gasauto) is available across the country at around 520 gas stations. Consult the overview on mylpg.eu.

    • The network of public charging points is not yet comprehensive and traveling with an electric car through Spain requires some planning and preparation..
    • For an up-to-date overview of the locations of charging points, visit chargemap.com, openchargemap.org or search for charging points via the Chargemap app (IOS and Android), for example.

    Gas stations

Usually the amount that has been refueled, debited and the rest of the money released within 20 minutes, but sometimes it can also take a few days to two weeks before the reserved amount can be used again.
