Petrol stations in Turkmenistan: Ashgabat-Dashoguz

Postby steven » Fri Jun 03, 2016 9:13 am

E-mail question: We are three motorbikes travelling from Askhabat to Daşoguz, to then cross the border to Uzbekistan.

Do you have information about any refuelling station on the road? There are about 600 km according to Google Map, and with our 18Lt. tanks and approximately 280 km of autonomy we need to plan carefully.

Answer
There is a petrol station in Erbent Image

Chaikhanas in Darwaza also sell petrol. After that, there is nothing until you get to the Konye Urgench neighborhood, I think.

Since I believe fuel is still heavily subsidized by the government (in 2012 it was something like 120 liters per month for free, and though they've reduced energy subsidies since then I believe they are nowhere near market pricing), I have to imagine that local would be more than happy to let you siphon off some of their gas for a moderate price if you ever did get stuck anywhere.

Hi there :-)

Do you know if they also sell diesel?

Kind regards,

Not all petrol stations sell diesel, but a lot of them do. Especially trucks from Turkey use diesel, that's at least how I remember it from a few year's back.
