some advice on the jerries


i have a old one and it is far superior to the new one i have, would recommend going for the s/h army surplus ones as are a tougher grade of steel but slightly heavier. some of the new ones look a bit tinny if you know what i mean

however both work fine if you know what i mean

I agree the cheap Chinese ones aren't up to much - the ones for a fiver from boot sales etc are far better!!!

Tha Harwoods deal looks a bit better - for us islanders... Saves messing about with deliveries. Would need eight to fill the tanks but I think 4 would be enough...

Machine Mart: branches all over the place do them for 15.22 (incl VAT) and in red or green. They can also supply a metal fixing bracket for around 17.

Just a thought.

Might be useful for a Weymouth trip

Why isn't there fuel in Weymouth? (A gap in the market for sure.)
