In the navy we used to fill the petrol cans before we deployed and they would pretty much stay like that for the duration of a 6/7/8/9 month deployment. They were only there for the Gemini OB as the Pac 22/24s were diesel. I'm not sure how long it ultimately stayed in the cans for, but it was certainly there for a full deployment.

There's weather out there - must be time to RIB!

(Or dive, or ref rugby, or.......)
