Buying fuel in jerry cans

In recent times in the Solent area we have had some problems filling Jerry Cans. Asda at Fareham has a rule you can only fill 10L max. A very officious [ex WWII man I expect] accosted us and made sure we didn't take more than we were allowed! At an Esso garage there is a sign, saying you can only fill 10L unless you produce a fuel storage licence, then you can have 25L. Anyone know what the law is? If a licence is required, where do you apply and what storage facilities at a residential address do you have to provide?

I think it all depends on what Council your in.

We used to have a licence to store up to 100ltrs ? of petrolem at the Centre, until we had a letter telling us that we no longer needed a licence due to the quantity our licence was for.

For info - this is what Cardiff CC stated were their proposed licensing conditions in 2007:

Quote:
1.12 Suitable container means: -
a metal container satisfying the constructional and labelling requirements of the Petroleum-Spirit (Motor Vehicles etc) Regulations 1929; or
a plastic container satisfying the constructional and labelling requirements of the Petroleum-Spirit (Plastic Containers) Regulations 1982; or
a demountable fuel tank of a motor boat or similar vessel; or
a United Nations approved container for the carriage of petrol.

Your'e lucky nowadays to be able to get 2 cans filled atthe pumps. There is an obvious way around that problem however but you have to be a night owl

I regularly fill 4 x 20l cans at Morrisons in Horndean without a problem, but thats probably due to the staff not knowing what they are doing more than anything.

I'll second that. Needed fuel quickly to top the boat off for a PB course, so popped into Morrisons - "Sorry, you can't fill metal petrol cans up, only plastic ones"

So I went next door and used Tescos Pay @ Pump instead
