So what's the cost of fuel then????
 
One of the difficult part of planning for me is to work out a budget for the whole trip:confused1: . For us, our biggest expense would be cost of fuel.

How about we use this thread to post current fuel prices(diesel or petrol) for the country you are in or travelling through. I'm sure other people would be interested in current prices as well, or just some indication of what to expect.

Personally, we are only travelling mid next year from Oz to London in a 4wd going via Eastern Russia, Mongolia and the Stans.

Happy travelling:scooter:

And again the first one...
 
...hoping others will follow!!

So, for Japan (and it varies of course depending on where you are) but presently I am paying here on Shikoku for regular 130 Japanese Yen for "Super" 140 Japanese Yen. :thumbdown:

UK - 90p (ish) a litre
 
In the UK you can expect to pay 90p (£0.90) a litre. It was up to a £1 a litre a few months back, but hasn't been much lower for the last couple of years. Thats for both petrol and derv. Diesel being slightly more expensive.

There is a little local variation in the remote areas I believe, and the cheapest places to buy it appears to be in the supermarkets.

Budget day today, so that could all change :)

Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand
 
97 : RM 1.92/ltr = US$0.55/l = Euro 0.41
92 : RM 1.88/ltr = US$0.54/l = Euro 0.40
Diesel : RM 1.58/ltr = US$0.45/l = Euro 0.34

Multiply the above by 2 (more or less) for our neighbor Singapore.

Thailand is just slightly higher in price than Malaysia.

A similar thread on European prices.

Sorry, forgot to put the price in for where I am at the moment:rolleyes2: !!

It varies between states, but not by too much, for eg NSW is about OZ $1.20 - OZ $1.30 per litre for petrol and diesel is normally 0.05 - 0.10 cents per litre more. QUeensland for eg is normally 0.05 cents per litre cheaper(only to be used as estimates)

Don't you guys have the most expensive fuel in the world?

Nigel Marx 22 Mar 2007 05:13

At present in New Zealand NZ$1.53 per litre 91RON (0.52 Euro) , NZ$1.61 95RON. Diesel is about $0.98 so we are all waiting for those diesel bikes to arrive here!

Russia
 
From doing a bit of research, it looks like fuel is about 10 Rouble/liter in Russia. Maybe someone can confirm this??

Does anyone know what the current prices are in the upper Stans and Mongolia??

Pumbaa 23 Aug 2007 06:00

Fuel prices for 172 countries
 
So after some more research re fuel prices, I stumbled accross this document. It relates to 2004/5 so a bit out of date, but a good indicator for the fuel prices for different countries anyway.

Happy reading!!!!
