so cheap it's sold by the gallon so AED 6.75 (US$ 1.83) for 98 Octane and AED 6.25 (US$1.69) for 95 Octane... Diesel is expensive though at AED 19.5 (US$ 5.29) or thereabout... however only in Dubai, in Abu Dhabi, ADNOC sells deisel at AED 8.95 (US$2.43) or something, so huge cues for people wanting cheap juice...

cheers man..

Re: How we do it in the UAE

The last nissan patrol i posted had "only" one turbo...

2008 is another year...Off Road Uphill Drag is here again, the guys here are getting more and more crazy... check this SWB Patrol.....

YouTube - bader ahli twin turbo (FaZa3 Team)

and some more...

let the fun begin...

and who says you can't run 8's in a 4WD...

guess with vast amounts of horsepower, aerodynamics really don't matter

Re: How we do it in the UAE

THATS INSANE!!

At night, uphill, little traction etc......bet its a rush though!!

I went quad biking out there 2 years ago and I found out how dangerous is can be. Sitting on top of a v.high dune enjoying the view then the ground just gave way sending me & my quad rolling down one side of a very large dune.

Also found that water was more expensive than fuel!!

I Love the UAE.

Yeah, a bottle of Pellegrini is AED 18,00 at the petrol station... for 1 litre that is... and a Super costs AED 6.75 per gallon..
