Ceuta used to be tax free, has that changed?

Easter 2006 Ceuta was 15cents a litre cheaper than mainland Spain. W Sahara considerably cheaper still. If heading south, Laayoune was excellent value - don't go too long between fill ups, as there is always the possibility a station may have run out.

While we're talking diesel, anyone know the latest price in Atar, RIM?

I was just told that it's gone up a lot lately in Mori: "more than Mali" (tho this seems unlikely...). Last price I have is 240 oogs or about 50p a litre - wondering how much its worth filling right up in Western Sahara.

thanks

Last week BP garage at the bottom of the hill just heading out of Ceuta port was €0.74c per litre. Rest of Maroc was around 0.95/0.99 MAD / litre.

Check grades to buy - they sell higher grade and low grade depending on what your piston/bore clearance is like lol... I always bought higher grade (Gas350) and had no problems in my VW T4. I don't think that would have been the case with the other stuff.
