SIN PLOMO 95/98 are petrol

98 is high octane unleaded PETROL only needed for high-performance cars ie top-end sports cars etc.

95 is bog standard unleaded Petrol

Diesel is cheap run of the mill Diesel with no additives in it.

If you find another Diesel at the pump it has additives in it to help your engine better, it will always be more expensive than the other NORMAL one.

Hope that explains it a bit clearer

Hi Sunny
Just to add to what has already been said
Sin Plomo literally means without lead(unleaded Petrol)
A word often used for Diesel is Gasaleo
There are often 2 diesel pumps as stated before. One basic Diesel and the dearer one with addatives

If you want cheaper fuel try the service station at San Luis roundabout Mercadonna is also nearby, the fuel is at least 10 cents cheaper per litre . But they ONLY take cards
