hi
we also took loads of extra diesel from Iran into turkmenistan, and out of turkmenistan to Uzbekistan. No problem at all, although a very throrough boarder check leaving Turkmenistan and entering Uzbekistan.
Found new diesel in Tortkol at a gasstation.
Enjoy your trip

Here are few coordinates of places where Diesel is apparently available. I've gathered this info from several blogs of people who drove campers through Uzbekistan.

N42.458534° E59.581351°
N41.976698° E60.636089°
N40.061383° E64.128218
N42°25'51.9" E059°36'59.0"
41.37925, 60.35681 (Hotel Alibek, Diesel black market)
N39°49'13.3" E064°25'58.7"
N39°43'25.3" E067°08'07.4"
41.33383, 69.21539 (UzGazOil, should have Diesel)

We are currently on the road and should reach UZB at the end of August. I will update this info once we are there.

Although the value of som vs USD has dramatically gone down on the black market, prices for transport, food,... are largely still the same in Uzbekistan. It's really a great bargain atm.

We found diesel in torktkul but quality was very poor, not entirely sure if that caused our fuel pump to breakdown but might be.
However we had A spare and in small town Guzor on our Way to Denau we found A mechanic who put it in. Not So remarkable but the fact he spoke dutch (!) was. Great adventure
