Collapsible long range tank

I came across these collapsible fuel tanks while researching stuff on the Web yesterday. They look impressive to me. Sorry if they have been mentioned on here before but I thought that they may be of interest.

I think the tanks will be available in the UK through Marine MegaStore.

They have been mentioned in passing but I don't think anyone was bringing them to the UK then. I'd be interested to know prices. Too many websites pimp the product but don't tell you a price.

I think they are a fantastic idea. I've got a collapsible tank myself though and they are a real pain in the neck to get a normal petrol station to let you fill them.
I've sussed now though that if I go to the nearest one to Tesco or Sainsburys that match their prices they are so desperate for trade that they'd let me fill a carrier bag as long as I paid up

If you Google " fuel bladder" you will find quite a few in the US with prices.
They are very popular for long range offshore fishing trips.
