Bottled Gas in Spain: All You Need to Know just received this news letter from Abaco Advisers. Is it a spoof or a scam? I agree with all and any safety procedures, but the official Cepsa bottled gas man that comes round twice a week will sell bottled gas to anyone, no questions asked, no contract, no nothing. Have I moved to cowboy land? Are Spain laws, rules and regulations out of a joke book?

How would you go on with your insurance company if something went wrong?

You can only buy a full gas bottle, from a delivery truck or at a gas station,  if you have an empty one to hand over. 

In theory that means you have a gas contract, as when you get the contract you make it for a set number of bottles. 

However, it is not difficult to buy bottles in say a boot sale / flea market.

Thank you Johnzx

Would it be fair to say the regulations are meaningless unless they are enforced? So people can buy and sell gas bottles at the car boot sale quite openly, and the official gas bottle man and the garage ask no questions or ever ask to see a contract or an up to date inspection saftey certificate. All a bit like the gun laws in the US, blind eye joke regulations.

Is anyone responsible for enforcing gas bottle regulations?

Is this a the perfect example of politicians, civil servants and bureaucrats ferreting away in ivory towers inventing laws, rules and regulations without the slightest thought of whoever is going to enforce them. Are these people highly paid for by the taxpayer.

There is enough in the world for everyone, but not enough for the greedy!

Yes, you've definitely moved to cowboy land. Or more accurately, a third world country and laws that match.
