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

Leaving India for Pakistan tomorrow , I'm going to go straight through in 4-5 days just to be on the safe side, I've got plenty of places to see yet and i am looking forward to spending some time in Iran. Where do I get these fuel cards by the way, There saying that fuel rationing is coming in on wed but you problhey know more over there,
We should meet up for sure if your still there, I should be crossing into Iran on sun or mon next,

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
