If he did that, is it legal to have more than 220 litres in her?

surely a trailer for the rib would be a better investment than a petrol bowser

I am fortunate that I "store" my boat on a trailer in my yard, so filling it at the station is easy. I have seen guys with numerous jerry cans and the station operator is the one doing the filling. My guess is that he would rather have the revenue rather than worry about regulations.

Not to stray from the topic, but I am curious about fuel rates in the UK. Last summer, in Canada, many stations were up in the $1.10/litre and perhaps 10% more at a marina. It has come down (now that summer vacation season is past...) to an average of about $.82/litre

You are paying about half our price.

Even less actually!!! In the UK petrol is currently about 0.85 per litre - without tax about 0.30 - bit of a difference. Do you pay road tax in Canada???

Yes.. about 1/2 is tax... GST (similar to your VAT) and Provincial Sales Tax except Alberta) Did I read that you folks can get a rebate on your road tax if the fuel is used in a boat? We can't, but I think there was a time when we could...

If you guys are paying double what we are... well, you have my sympathy! I burn about 1.5 l./NM in my Hurricane at my typical cruising speed... about 36-38 MPH with an average load of me, my side-kick, two Huskies and a load of dive gear...

Fuel Tanker

Coincidence , I was in the local Morrisons filling station yesterday where they get all upset about filling cans and a guy was filling a big tank mounted to the back of a little Rascal pick up .
It had the relavent safety stickers on it but it must have been at least a 200 litre tank and he was putting petrol in it no diesel .

He didn't get any grief at all

Makes sense to me - how can carrying loads of leaky old jerrycans be safer than a purpose built tank??? Then again when has sense ever come into it???

jerry cans

I wonder if the problem with jerry cans and the legislation has anything to do with the fact that some fools use the wrong type of containers , ie ones made for water that burst easily etc .
You see enough Landies about with 2 or more 20l jerry cans strapped on the outside and they never get any hassle
