If Jambos suggestion of a cardboard box is a little low rent, why not a purpose made ply box to contain the tanks. Epoxy coated the fuel would not affect the ply.

The Whole problem is Stopping the SMELL and the FUMES,Which apart from the unpleasantness can be V Dangerous!...i.e the Petrol from Leaking in the first Place.Being Careful when you Fill, and Decant, and a GOOD TIGHT Seal on DECENT Containers WILL sort it.Also Its ALWAYS a good idea (especialy when its Hot!) Not to over Fill them,ie to full capacity

Totally agree, however if all the precautions fail a box that can be removed from the car when the tanks have been removed will ensure that the smell does not linger in the car due to contamination of the interior with spilt petrol .

if safe to do so - leave containers outside car when you go and pay for the fuel ...gives them few minutes to "dry"

or fill car up after filling tanks before placing tanks back in car...
