Hi blaine

I think that this might help, it says the same as France and lots of stations.

Where are you planning to visit, we have done Turkey about 11 times by pedal cycle and love it, would like to go with the motorhome.

The cup or dish adaptor is the main one used in Turkey....



You'll have no problem finding Autogas (Otogaz) there as its widely available, if a little pricey, around £1 a litre last year.

Also, if you do a big fill with diesel, LPG or both they will usually wash your van free of charge.

Thanks Peejay. Autogas this year [just had flight for Hol] appears better value as in Marmaris the exchange was 3.3 !!

Just to add to PJ's info the auto gas in some parts of Turkey is made up off 25% propane and 75% butane. If you fill up in Turkey and then come across extreme low temperatures elsewhere you could have a problem.

In 2004 the Turks had to "winterise" the auto gas due to very low temperatures. The problem was with the tanks in car boots of vehicles than run on Autogas. You should not have any problem if your LPG bottle is in a gas locker, if you have an external tank you might have problems.

There are two types of diesel Motorin and Euro Diesel. Motorin is cheaper, I used it from 2002 onwards and never had any problems.

The latest fuel prices are diesel TL4.7 about £1.60 per litre these are from well known branded stations. You can get it considerably cheaper in some places though.

Also Turkey has now switched to electronic visas see https://www.motorhomefacts.com/ftopti...or-turkey.html

Current exchange rate today is TL3.19 to the pound sterling.

Safe travelling.

Thanks for that.
We have been trying to decide a route to go and have decided ferry from Ancona to Igoumenista both ways as this will give us max time in Turkey.
As we visited Istanbul previously we are thinking of entering at Ipsala then down to Gelibolu and ferry to Lapseki. I have printed a timetable and fare list for this route and as it quotes buses trucks etc. I assume Motorhomes will be OK [unless someone knows different] We'll then make our way southerly to the Med coast. So if anyone has any must do or don't do, we will be grateful to hear.
We hope to have about 4 weeks in Turkey.
Have just had e mail from Superfast ferries saying camping on deck ok April - Oct but van needs to be in "closed garage still this will be followed in the new year when hopefully we can start to get prices.
Just changed our Hobby Alkoven for a N&B Arto, love the extra space.

Thanks Don. That's what I like about these forums the info you get back is amazing.
Also regarding visa. We have just returned by air and our visa was paid for on entry at the airport. Be good to do it before we go, does it cause hold ups at the border?

Welcome to the Arto club Which model?

The Arto is my first MH so I have no comparisons, but I am very pleased - especially the garage space in the 69GL and I would hate to be without a garage that size.
