How much fuel (if any) can we carry on the ferry?

Is the road, border or area open and accessible to foreigners? Is there danger?

We are about to cross the Caspian Sea from Baku (or Alat) to Aktau with our car.

Do you know if we can transport jerrycans of diesel with us on the boat? If so, is there any limit? (we're thinking 20 or 40 litres)
Is it allowed by the ferry operator? And by the Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan customs?

Chris & Ele.

Good question. I don't know. You should ask the ferry company for the best answer. Do let us know if you find out, it's the first time someone has asked.
