That's a lot of taxes, so if that's what they have found what is the total amount of the tax evasion?

This operation was just across 36 of Turkey’s 81 provinces....so potential double what's quoted in the article.

It's hard to see how this can work, surely they have to declare how much fuel is purchased and from where. One can assume that whatever is purchased is sold, so how can it be reset? maybe some devious TLFer can explain

A friend of ours who works and lives in the Bodrum area is originally from the east of Turkey came to us one day and told us what his dad had done, he had bought a medium sized water bowser on credit and was crossing the border into Iran to fill up with super cheap petrol or diesel, ferrying it back and selling it to fuel stations in Turkey, eventually he got caught and was fined and had the water bowser confiscated, the extended family had to club together to fund the credit on the vehicle od dad could have ended up in poki, I was also told there are networks of plastic pipes crossing the border where they can now fill up and resell to otherwise on the face of it legit petrol stations.
