Where do I buy oil in Spain

Hi All
I am in Europe on a 4 month tour on my 1200gsa ans she needs a top up of engine oil.Where is the best place to find some oil that I can buy. I'm in Toledo tonight then Valencia tomorrow and Granada a couple of days later. The couple of Repsol service stations I went to did not have oil for 4 stroke bikes.
Any advise would be much appreciated.
Andrew

Hello man.

The oil you put in your GSA should be simple petroleum blend lubricant and not synthetic blend. This means that you can put almost any oil you find in the Gas Stations, as long as it is 10-40W or 15-50W. Also you will pay less money, to buy these oils. Your engine is a simple boxer engine, like the ones used in cars 20 years ago.

Have nice ride in Spain. I was in Toledo, Granada and Madrid last summer, and especially Granada was magnificent.

I live in Heraklion, we can have a coffee if you want and you have time to spend in the city, on 25th of May. If you want, send me a pm.

Goodnight!
