you do need a licence to store large ammounts ( just like a farm or similar) am not sure about keeping it in small containers.


Storage is covered by COSHH and storage method and Location would need to be risk assessed. Labled appropiately.
Hazechem rules would apply for transporting Large quantities

An outdoor centre I used to work only permitted it to be transported in an open trailer or pick up. fuel quantities were what we used for up to 6 boats.
It was stored in a seperate store with fire drenching system, and labeled.

Un fortunatly I cannot remember quantities as The grey matter is aging, and I have been out of the outdoor centre now for 10 years

As a commercial centre, we keep a fairly large quantity of fuel in our petrol locker (small concrete structure with fire resistant lining & ventilation) and we used to have a licence from the Council to store up to X amount of fuel, however we were notified quite a while ago that we no longer needed a licence to store fuel.

This is from the Trading Standards Website:

Quote:
On 9 December 2002, a new set of Regulations called The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 came in to force. These say businesses storing petrol in cans and / or drums no longer need a licence but must the must comply with the new regulations. The regulations expect each business to carry out a risk assessment and then introduce or maintain appropriate precautions to minimise the risk of a fire or explosion.
Also, all our excess fuel (i.e. not in an actual petrol tank) is currently located in 10L Explosion proof containers because it needs to be transported from our fuel depot (we're council owned) to the centre via Land Rover which has explosion warning stickers etc front & rear.

Good old socialism. Create lots of new laws to pander to every idiotic pressure group that makes a noise. Then find that people can't actually go about the business of living without breaking the law, so create lots more new laws to allow them to do what the other new laws say they can't.

Except that all the reasonable sensible safeguards have been removed, because they were not necessary, because it's all illegal so no one will do it!!

But this petrol thing is very confusing. By the looks of it my car may not be insured when I do the 32 mile round trip to collect fuel

Question to all- Are their any 20l metal cans on the market that dont flake paint into the fuel all the time
I have about 151,000 20l metal cans outside my office, all of the non flaking variety....trouble is they belong to the Government so it may not like me giving them away!
