Fuel storage cans....

I'm looking for some cans (preferably plastic) to carry some fuel for that extra range on the RIB.

I thought it would be relatively simple, find a can on tinternet and buy it, wrong! I bought one I could stick my finger through, another I could hardly get the pump nozzle in and it took an age to empty so I'm not buying any more without recommendation.

So... What d'ya use?

One of these on the old boat with the correct connection to collect direct to the fuel filter -http://www.rib.net/forum/f10/garage-clear-out-60392.html

One of these on the old old one - Quicksilver 25 litre outboard fuel tank - Mercury - Mariner | eBay

And one that I can't find a link to on the present one.

Any tank that fits your storage location will be fine. If you're on inboard tank don't try and fill it, just connect the small tank to the filter or engine and off you go

I had two on the SR and would like another two but can't find them for love nor money.

You wouldn't want to part company with a couple of those bad boys would you?

I've got some of these not cheap but they are the dogs danglies. I have the petrol ones which I imported. The only difference between the diesel & petrol version is the colour of the tag on the neckband.
