Transporting petrol to your rib

Anyone know the rules regarding carrying fuel from the filling station to your boat. Specifically using a pickup with a canopy?

Use proper designated fuel containers...well sealed and secured against spillage..second nature for a Scot!..Been doing it for 30+years with no hassell,even when seen by the Old Bill filling up 100 litres+..
Just get on with it..Personally I like Siphon Tubes to facilitate re-fuelling.

Everything you ever wanted to know:

Carriage and Storage of Petrol and Diesel | Regulations | Knowledge & Advice | Knowledge & Advice | RYA

In general you will find two types of garage:

1. Don't care / turn a blind eye to sensible looking people filling up in a sensible way. Usually people near the coast are more understanding.

2. Will stick to the rules they have been taught. You won't change their view even if you put the legislation in front of them. Often associated with supermarket chains (although Asda are unmanned!).

By and large once you've actually got the fuel, the only time someone will show any interest in how you are moving it (unless perhaps you are commercial / a club and other people pay attention) is after something goes wrong.

That makes interesting reading Poly.
I have been stopped filling 4 x 5ltr containers when we had motocross bikes in the pickup and assumed that was the rules, max of 2x5ltrs but I guess that's just a supermarket rule

I have always found the nightime automated supermarket pumps very obliging and helpful over purchasing large quantities of fuel

BIG YES FOR THESE AND SYPHON TOOBS

been stopped a number of times for filling up 25l tanks around my way at different stations.

i don't know why the law is like this anymore, it would be cheaper to burn single malt than petrol for starting fires!

Except it doesn't answer the OP's question about transporting it (which the RYA one above does!).

I doubt it was ever about malicious fire starting [although you are completely wrong - even cheap whisky is about 10x the cost of petrol]. The issue is really because too many people are stupid and will store it somewhere stupid and the fire brigade have to deal with the consequences.
