Thanks dude, all oil has already been bulk purchased for the trip, Jurgen buys the e-tec oil in germany and we split this cost 50/50. The oil is transferred into jerry cans which are at the front on the console and then transferred into the main oil tank during each days maintenance schedule. To transfer this we use a special container that has a valve so you can get the spout into the filling cap and then allow the oil to flow.
For fuel, we refill wherever we can, this has all been planned in advance and we also have a land support vehicle which is carrying a few empty metal jerry cans just incase we need them.
