Found this.

According to one of the rumors in Escape from Kalisz,
"A vehicle driver tells you that the 4th Guards Tank Army was able to move so fast because it's running on gasoline! A whole month's output from the Ploesti oil fields in Romania was earmarked for the 4th Guards just so the Warsaw Pact would have one mobile army. There are thousands, maybe millions, of liters of it in the supply dumps of the division. A lot of supply officers are getting rich selling it to the black market."
