Plastic Petrol Cans

Can anyone recommend a good plastic jerry/petrol can for carrying spare fuel?

I have some 25l plastic cans but they leak around the caps when shaken about (and always have done from new!).

Was considering these from ebay:

As they should stay upright better than the tall jerry can types, but I'm worried they will leak like the ones I've got!

Any thoughts?

Is it not feasable to carry an extra tank like this on its end?

We could do.... but it would need to be plumbed into the main fuel line somehow as we wouldn't be able to pour out of that into the underfloor tank very easily!

Syphon pipe? That's assuming you can rest it higher than your filler cap.

It'd be less messy than pouring from a jerry can.

I got 3 of these, pretty good design for filling our internal tanks on the water because of the screw on spout, and no cap leakage so far. May not be so good for deck level filling though? They are made by Plastimo (model 39649), but may be discontinued, got mine from http://stores.ebay.de/wwvv-sea-sport...assersportshop

There is quite a nifty solution to your problem. Plastimo make a fuel can jerry can which is 25 litres and has a fuelconnector and a jerry can lid with a closeable vent.

have a fuel connector fitted to the extra input on your filter and have a fuel pipe that snaps between can and filter when needed.

I have to go but I'll dig out the part no's later

I've got a couple of them have found them to be good and the spout stores in the neck of the can

Apart from the fact that petrol stations are not licensed to sell petrol in any quantity larger than 5 litres if its a plastic can....

Some do enforce this quite heavily!
