Vehicles, including fire engines, are parked near a fuel depot which is on fire near Vasylkiv, Kiev region, Ukraine, June 9, 2015. Emergency services struggled to prevent the spread of a deadly fuel depot fire outside Kiev on Tuesday and three firemen were reported missing after the blaze triggered a powerful explosion. The fire burned overnight and by morning had spread to at least 16 tanks, most of them storing petrol. That sent a huge pall of black smoke over the area surrounding the depot near Vasylkiv, 30 km (19 miles) from Kiev. Picture taken with a fish-eye lens. REUTERS/Valentyn Ogirenko

A Soviet-era Moskvich car is driven as a man holds a bottle of petrol to feed the carburetor to run the engine in Havana May 28, 2013. Russian state-owned oil company Zarubezhneft said this week it was giving up for now on a problem-plagued exploration well off Cuba's north-central coast, which brings to an end the communist-led island's only active project in its search for offshore oil fields. The news was not all bad because the company said it would return to the same spot next year. But it was another blow to Cuba's hopes for energy independence, which have acquired new urgency with the March death of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, the communist-led island's top ally and benefactor.

A motorcyclist carries fuel containers after filling them up from a petrol station as he passes other motorists in queue in Toukh, El-Kalubia governorate, about 25 km (16 miles) northeast of Cairo March 12, 2013. Egypt's oil minister Osama Kamal has dismissed the head of state-owned Misr Petroleum and another top official due to a crisis in distributing fuel used by buses and trucks, state news agency MENA said. The country is working on an economic programme where it plans to cut back on subsidies of fuel. Last year it eliminated subsidies on 95-octane gasoline, the highest grade available, and it raised fuel prices in many sectors last month. In July the government plans to start a scheme to ration subsidised motor fuel using smart cards available to drivers of vehicles with smaller capacity engines.

Ninety-four percent of new cars sold in Uzbekistan last year were made by General Motors - the biggest share of any market served by the U.S. auto giant. That General Motors should have a foothold in the reclusive former Soviet republic owes much to the technology and capital it brings to a country which, under veteran President Islam Karimov, has been the graveyard of many foreign ventures.

Apart from a few regulations on the vehicle's dimensions -- they must measure under 3.5 metres (12 ft) long and have at least three wheels, for instance -- the rules are simple: cover the designated distance in under 39 minutes and 20 seconds, equivalent to a minimum speed of 25 km (15.5 miles) an hour.
