And in our wonderful H&S society it's illegal to store petrol at home in a Jerry can, oh, and technically also illegal for a garage to allow you to fill one!

If your interested....... What is a jerry can? A guide on how to legally store petrol - BBC Newsbeat

The rules were updated in 2014 and I think it is not illegal to store in 20L metal containers. http://www.hse.gov.uk/fireandexplosi...containers.pdf (subject to certain standards being met)

As far as I know most filling stations haven't had their license updated though so it might not help you actually fill them!

If I have read that correctly, I, along with probably most people in the boating world, that have seperate fuel cans for their outboards, are being very naughty people........!?!?

It says a maxium of 10 litres in a plastic can......! Mine is 20 or 25 litres, can't remember which, and I have 2 of them, which get filled, transported and stored, on a regular basis. Oooops.

You have a portable fuel tank on your boat, not a fuel can - a different puppy entirely. Try explaining that to the harridan at the Asda pump though...

Fair point, but does that also include the storage side of it aswell.?
