Hi Kev,
In Iran at the moment Estafan heading towards Pakistan should still be in Iran when you cross, I have not heard anything about ration of fuel, I got two fuel cards 100L each when i crossed over at Muka that was 11 days ago.
maybe meet up when you get to Iran goodluck

iran fuel

hi kev,

just spent a month in iran, no fuel problems. check our post at the iran-forum:you can buy cards at any branch of the iran oil company for 55$ per 100 liters if you show your carnet, which brings the price for 1 liter up to 6000 rials. black market price is about 3-4000 rials. just hang around at the fuel station and ask for petrol without card, and some other (taxi) driver will fill your tank at this price, or often less, iranians being so helpful.

good luck
g&t
