I have been filling my two 25 litre tanks plus two 20 litre Jerry cans at my local Sainsbury's without any problems for the last three years, then last month I took my two 25 litre tanks which go under the jockey seat to fill them up and I was asked over the tannoy to bring them in for inspection and once the manager was happy with the c e markings on the tanks he seemed satisfied with them and let me go ahead and fill them both up.
But I suspect that eventually they will only let us use the 10 litre and 5 litre cans.
I think the only way to stay legal is leave your main fuel tanks connected to the hose under the jockey seat and take the rib with you and jump on the rib and fill up from there.
How I wish that I had a 90 litre tank fitted under the jockey console when I had the option.
