Re: Water connection costs

Re: Fuel prices

Mrs W, how many times have you really needed 4x4 ? bet it's not many. I have thought about it for a while and concluded that, for most, it is just not needed.
There will always be those living up an unmaintained track who need the ground clearance however.

I have never used the registration date but use the last six of the Bastidor. Never failed thus far on my re-matriculated car.

Re: Fuel prices

Apparently, the Spanish government is about to increase the tax on diesel


I figure that will have to be a careful decision, are not 80% or so of cars on the road oil burners, that's a lot to alienate.

Re: "You have no Data Connection" android mobile

I would council against an old iphone, they go obsolete and applications just don't run.
As Android is now v7 it is probably time for an upgrade. See what offers you can get from your provider. Last year we got two LG k10s free with a minimal contract and are delighted with them.
