Actually - it may not be their choice. From what I read elsewhere on 'tinternet the decision was made by COBRA.

Also I'd love to know what anyone can do about someone refusing to sell ANYONE ANYTHING if its for a lawful purpose. Not aware that the law says you have to...

Anyone tried taking the boat and fill the tank in the boat...? Or find an ASDA that isn't manned ;-)

I always go to the counter and ask having left the outboard tank where they can see it from the cash desk. I just say is it OK if I fill the boat tanks and so far it's been a yes both in home and holiday areas.

Only if you leave the vents open - otherwise they are fume-tight.

Morrisons Fort William was No problem filling 22l containers ,But the Esso garage up the road had a problem with it., Tesco in Dumfries and Inverness on the A9 had no Problems either.
ASDA in 24hr Automatic Card pay at pump fuel was the easiest.
I,m sure in scotland any small garage will be glad of the business. Prices are a bit steep in places , upto 1.52 per litre.

It's an old rule that is being enforced rather than something new - my local garage questioned me once and told me that they shouldn't really let me fill more than 5l in plastic containers (I think it's 20l for metal ones). There has been a sign in most of my local garages for years on the side of the pump, along with don't eat, smoke etc - take a look I suspect they'll be on most forcourts.

I leave them in the boat now and they are happy - probably because they can't see them
