Fuel Prices & Info

 Introduction

This price guide has been put together from information passed on to us from our customers. At present most of the information relates to African countries – as we receive more information we will add it to this resource.

In some countries inflation means that this data will rapidly become dated – please bear this in mind, and look at the dates for each submission.

Crossing Europe and the Middle East

Prices in continental Europe are generally cheaper than the UK, with Gibraltar offering duty free fuel.

Beware of Turkey, which matches UK prices – fill up in Greece or Syria; the latter has very cheap fuel indeed. When you arrive at the Turkish border customs may well ask you about any fuel reserves you are carrying. Needless to say, Saudi Arabia charges next to nothing for fuel, though Jordan is more expensive.

Other Resources

WELTREISE-FORUM has various price postings in German – This is pretty up-to-date, and it’s not too difficult to use even if you don’t understand German; but you’ll need to know that petrol is ‘benzin’, and diesel is ‘diesel’.
