    Buying petrol in Cambodia is very different. ‘Filling up’ in the countryside is far different from buying petrol at the service station. Motos pull to the side of the dusty, pot -holed roads to the roadside stall selling petrol. Here they purchase a recycled bottle filled with fuel. The average purchase is one litre. Fill, pay and leave in under 5 minutes!
