Re: Repsol...Propane and Butane

We do find that at our altitude when the Ambient Temperature falls below 4 degrees that Butane stops gassing on the bottles located outside the main building, it is quite usual to use Propane in these circumstances.

Repsol...Propane and Butane

Just been to town to change two Repsol Propane bottles and was told that Propane is not available from Repsol anymore for Private customers, commercial only. The lass swapped them for Cepsa with apologies and a nice smile so no probs. All sounds a bit Spanish to me...anybody else heard or experience...

Re: Coronavirus

Thankyou, but to say the death rate is higher than Spain for instance is "slanted" for dubious purpose in my opinion. It is not higher as a percentage.(see deaths per million).Have a look at Belgium or Andorra for instance.
I also agree it is Tragic to say the very least!

Re: Coronavirus

When Oh when are they going to report the incidents as percentages of population rather than raw numbers. If you live in a community of 100 souls 1 death is significant; 66 million souls, not so much! Statistics... etc.

Re: Gaviscon advance

I'm a Gaviscon Advance man, it works well. You cannot buy it or import it into Spain from UK online suppliers. You can buy it in Gib at any chemists. Gaviscon Forte in sachets is available in Spain and works well but it does work out expensive. I've now found that a 20mg Omeprazole after dinner work...

Re: Coronavirus

Question: If we have been shut down for 15 days or so, we are told the incubation period is 15 days max, how come the number of infections is doubling every three days? I don't understand the Maths. Is shut-down not effective?

Re: Repair Shops Closed

Please check your facts Dude, according to my man, the Government changed the rules last night! He had a visit this morning from the "Man" and they stopped him dead. He's had to lay two mechanics.

Repair Shops Closed

Very Strange logic indeed: My car has died, I think from a Diesel Problem, whilst still in my garage on my fica in the Campo. The government,I am told, has closed all Garages/Repair shops to private motorists and told them that can only serve the freight industry during the close down. So no Grua an...

Re: Spanish Postal Service

Ours is open 8am till 2pm, max 3 people in the shop at any time otherwise wait outside and keep 1 metre apart. Correos Motos are out and about delivering as usual. I had a parcel from amazon yesterday so all looks reasonable.

Re: Coronavirus

QUESTION.
Are there any restrictions on how far one can travel to buy food/supplies etc. We live in the Campo and usually use several of the nearby Towns to obtain various items. Including as far as the Coast.
