@M.Seidam, excited to be back in Sweihan, look forward to it! 

As it's quite a way out, having full tank of petrol is always challenging. https://goo.gl/maps/eNb39s5avGjq8go2A is the ADNOC station I am aware of.

If someone knows any other one closer to the starting point, please post it.

Dear friends 

hello and welcome to "Sweihan Drives"

This will be my first drive leading in Sweihan desert which will continue in the coming weeks inshallah hence i named it "Sweihan Drives" exploring most of it before we head further south reaching Al Ain , waqan , and another areas and who knows we might end up reaching the yellow truck , Liwa and empty Quarter!

Regarding this one i preferred to start with an area i have visited last year. we will start from E16 Al Taf Road heading West with the sun rising behind us, gently riding the first dunes to get acquainted with the landscape. After the initial warm up we will start tackling the big dunes that make Sweihan such a fantastic off-roading place, enjoying all the climbs, the crests, the ridges and - above all - the large bowls it offers, moving a series of high and complex dunes in an exciting sequence of climbs and rides around some of the biggest and deepest bowls to be seen around before completing our loop back to E16.

Please make sure your vehicles are in perfect shape ( fluids, lubes, breaks, tires and the spare inclusing the tool to replace it , recovery tow points ... etc )  as its a demanding terrain and the toll on your cars are going to be tremendous while tackling especially the huge bowls.

I am very excited already from now and hope you are too :)

stay tuned for further news closing to the event time 

great week ahead

this is the nearest one indeed to the meeting point  as you pin pointed it @Karthik Raptor which is the most convenient to those coming via E611 and al faya road E75 and the others coming via the classical sweihan road E20 coming from al hayer.

the other gas station is one just once entering sweihan road coming from dubai alain  road https://goo.gl/maps/CLYYu8px95MdEczWA
