Cost aside, is there a second fuel tank available for your vehicle? You could then fill the second one with gas, and everything would stay outside. Plus it would be low to the ground. Once at your destination it could be pumped out into the boats fuel tank.

I have a cheap hitch rack that I have modified for other uses also. A couple quick modes and a bike rack could be fitted. Not sure how much effort would be required by a lazy person to use one though, as I find it rather simple.

Photo found on internet.

It's the vapour that's the problem, if you have pillows and clothing etc in the car they can stink for days. Avoid any tank with an air valve.

Jerry cans are good as the seals are under a lot of pressure and you can also buy the special filling adaptor that has an air tube inside that improves the flow while filling up your outboard tanks. I have seen a ribnet member on here (Mark)? in a revenger at SDS have a load of jerry cans in a RR Sport with nice leather so they must work for him

I doubt it - we make our cars over here (well for this market - I obviously don't drive a british made car - that would be crazy!) fuel efficient so there is no need for a second tank! If I was very careful I could probably drive the entire length of the UK on one tank of fuel.

Careful? But you'd be in Cornwall!

Don't be silly - I'd start there and get out before Mollers caught me...
