Transfer from Jordan to Ethiopia
after 4 years in Jordan I am relocating to Addis Ababa in Ethiopia this summer. I have owned and used a petrol 4 x 4 while in Jordan with good results (Mitsubishi Pajero, the standard 4 x 4 here!).
However I have been advised that I need a diesel in Ethiopia as petrol is difficult to find out of the capital.
For those of you who have travelled in the country (which we fully intend to do!), what are your views? It is a lot cheaper for me to add a long range fuel tank onto my existing car than buy a new one to replace it.
One of the trips I intend to do will be Addis to Khartoum, which although not a huge distance can take up to 5 days to complete, so a good range on a petrol V6 would be required (standard tank is 80 litres and gives no more than 400km), so all comments would be much appreciated.
Also the advisability of Land Rover versus Land Cruiser if I have to go down the new turbo diesel vehicle route!
