Re: Diesel in Uzbekistan

I brought 90 litres of extra petrol in Jerrycans across the KZ-UZ border without any problem two weeks ago. The Uzbek customs weren't interested at all in the petrol.

Re: Updates: Driving in Uzbekistan & Kazakhstan (Beyneu - Aktau)

I had the same experience as described. Especially the part from Beyneu to the border was hard with our 2wd car. We filled up in Beyneu with a lot of spare petrol and got 40 litres of black market fuel in Nukus through the Jipek Joli hotel. The price was 4000 for octane 80 or 5000 for octane 91.

Re: Driving my 2wd car to Tashkent

Thanks for your reply and the info!

We changed the middele part of our itinerary. From Tashkent, we take the Taraz-Almaty-Balkhash-Burabay-Kurgan route.
But the Beyneu-Jasliq road is still the most challenging part, i guess.
