Drove through UZ in July 2019 with a small diesel car (Mini).

In Uzbekistan I found good diesel at bigger Uzbekneftegas stations, like the one in Bukhara in the south, towards the car market, 4900 Som/liter. There is also a very modern Lukoil station in Tashkent, on a motorway exit to the east, 8000 Som/liter. For the rest I had to spend a lot of time finding diesel, usually a hose in the ground at the back of a gas station (6000 Som/liter) or a guy that appears with a tank, usually a friend of a friend of the person you ask.

As for the roads, the worst stretches are the 100km after Bukhara towards Nukus. They're followed by a perfect 300km of motorway. From Nukus to the Kazakh border road is good/very good, except for the last 60km, where the road is destroyed, but you can drive on the side on a sand track.
Road from Tashkent to Samarkand is OK, but there are occasional brutal potholes, especially on the stretch where you drive around KZ, close to Gulistan.
Road from Osh to Tashkent, past Andijan and Kokand and over the mountains was perfect.
Road from Tursunzoda crossing from TJ to Bukhara pretty bad and through small villages until Quarshi, then a bit better.
