Has any one ever tried filling one of these tanks? It strikes me as being a quite a fiddle to try and pore fuel into what is in effect a long soft bag?

It looks like the fuel equivalent of the old "poacher's pocket". I'd imagine you just hang it inside your raincoat and quietly fill it up

I saw a tidy V shaped bow version of this recently at a boat jumble. The SR4 owner in my company REFUSED to buy it

I fill two on a regular basis at a petrol station.

Stand it up on end, and as the fuel pours in, it actually gets more rigid.

They're great for small boats.
