Entering Syria and Joran with diesel
Hi, I heard about the Syrian diesel tax of 100$ per week and a 'nice' solution of telling at the border you drive on petrol. Did anyone do this trick at the border with or without success? I heard about one success story, but I can't imagine they don't look at the car papers to see if it's a diesel or not (or just listen or smell).
Further, is there still no way of getting into Lebanon with a diesel, can one apply the same trick I described above?
