Re: Spanish Engine Cleaner

Quimy carry in malaga do one too, as will any comercial chemical company. Im not sure if you need a licence to buy it tho. ( we have, but buying 20L drums is a bit different). They do 1L spray bottles.

Re: Extraordinary Quotas for Future Expenses for Spanish Communities

I understand that but 6 people dont use more 'connection' than 2 people? Each house only has one pipe to it, they dont get 6 pipes because its 6 people, you see what i mean?

Re: places to hire a reasonable mountain bike (not high end) in Malaga city

Download wallapop, buy one for 20 euro a few streets away.

Abandon it with a sign "llevarme, soy gratis!" When you are done with it, or sell it on wallapop again.
