In Spanish GasÚleo translates to diesel.
I've seen GasÚleo at some pumps as cheap as 75centimos per litre.
But I'm loathe to try it as I remember buying some cheap stuff in the Pyrenees some years ago. The van struggled up hills blowing out clouds of black smoke.
I normally buy the cheaper brands of diesel at 1.10euros per litre.
The lorry drivers use this GasÚleo , but I wonder if any one here has tried it.

Is it GasÚleo B or C? They equate to red diesel and heating oil.

When I toured Spain extensively in the 1960s there was only two choices at the pumps, Gasolina & Gasůleo, as I had a petrol car I didn't get to try the latter.
But as I don't have a modern engine & I have seen lorry drivers filling up with GasÚleo, I'll give it a try.
I'll keep you posted.

You'll be lucky, I doubt if the attendant will switch the pump on if you re spotted. Stiff penalties for using duty free red diesel just as in blighty. Traces of red remain in the fuel system for sometime after you decide to switch back to the legit brew A. Watch out for senor Traffico!

Didn't realise they had red diesel here.
Just shows how much I know!

I'm fairly certain truckies filling with B have a special plastic card account. The Tax authorities can easily identify these legit users.
Should add that gasoleo C is for calefaccion, that is heating oil. Don't know what the price differential is.
