Fuel in Spain


Gasoline

  • Lead-free Euro 95 (Gasolina Sin Plomo 95 / Eurosuper plus 95) and lead-free Superplus 98 (Gasolina Sin Plomo 98 / Super plus 98) are readily available.
  • Note: The Spanish names of gasoline and diesel are very similar: gasolina is gasoline and gasóleo is 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 gasoline and diesel are very similar: gasolina is gasoline and gasóleo is 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.
  • Spain has switched to the new Euro connector for LPG. To be able to refuel lpg, a lpg installation with a Dutch standard connection (bayonet) requires a Euronozzle. At some petrol stations the bayonet connection may still be used and no attachment is required.
  • In the Balearic Islands, LPG is available at a reasonable number of gas stations: 11 in Majorca, 2 in Minorca and 2 in Ibiza. LPG is also reasonably available in the Canary Islands: 5 in Gran Canaria, 4 in Tenerife and 2 in Lanzarote.

Natural gas

  • Natural gas (GNC (Gas Natural Comprimido)) is limited available. There are around 50 natural gas filling stations in Spain. For a current overview of all locations, visit cngeurope.com or use the PitPoint for IOS or Android app to find natural gas filling stations.

Electricity

  • Spain has almost 5000 estaciónes de carga eléctrical (ectrolineras), or charging points (source: eafo.eu), most of which are located in and around the big cities. (For comparison: the Netherlands has approximately 34,800 charging points according to eafo.eu.)
  • The network of public charging points is not yet comprehensive and traveling with an electric car through Spain requires 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

  • Note: all electrical and electromagnetic devices, such as lamps, a radio or a mobile phone, must be switched off during refueling.
  • Most gas stations along the (toll) highways are open either day or night or from 6 am to midnight.
  • Along the motorways and in the big cities, the gas stations are usually open from 7 am to 10 pm.

How to pay

  • Cash can be paid at gas stations.
  • Bank cards and credit cards are also accepted at the cash register at almost all service stations.

Fuel machines

  • At gas machines you can pay with a bank card or credit card (with pin code). Please note that Dutch bank and credit cards are sometimes not accepted.
  • Note: When paying with a bank card, a certain standard amount of € 100-150 is first reserved as a deposit (pre-authorization) to check whether the balance is sufficient for a full tank. 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.

Cheap fuel

  • Petrol and diesel are cheaper in Spain than in France.
  • In Spain, fuel can generally be cheapest at petrol stations connected to large supermarkets, at petrol stations on industrial sites and in rural areas at petrol stations of cooperatives.
  • Fuel is the most expensive at gas stations along motorways and highways and in the larger cities>

Spare fuel

  • A maximum of 10 liters of fuel may be entered in a reserve tank.
