Just tried the link and it does indeed open an almost blank page

There are a couple of drop down boxes, select 'Miscellaneous' on both and the content will come back.



Although a car fuel pump may be able to pump petrol, why would anybody consider taking the risk of combining petrol and electric just to save a little effort?

Tim

Has anyone had experience of using a jerry can hand pump. The quote that you can empty a can in 30 seconds.

Anyone tried one?

Nasher,

Jerry Flask

I'd wager it could be emptied of rum in less than 90 seconds, I did get some pure cane spirit whilst in Jamaica (that's the stuff straight off the still with no added water) it tasted good but every morning after a "session" I woke up with the remains of the skin off the insides of my cheeks (mouth!) in the bottom of my mouth. Good stuff though! can't wait till we visit the mudda in lawh again.

Thanks Mr B

will be looking that up now.

Prefer a drop of Pussers myself, but am also very partial to a drop of Jack D recently.

I contacted the company and was provided with the contact info for a Canadian dealer of their military products that is based in Edmonton. Your best bet might be to send them an email to find a dealer of their military products that is based in the UK. Here is a link to their homepage & from their they have their cotact emails;

I'll see if I can post some detail pictures tomorrow.

Here are some detail photos of the current standard NATO jerry cans. The dimensions are approximately 6 3/4" x 14 x 18 1/2"

Jeff, whats left of our Army uses heavy duty black plastic cans for water. Same size as a jerry can but has a large and small opening (to let the air back in). Whether they are fuel proof or not is a different question but I regularly use a couple of Towsures plastic containers for fuel and they seem to last. Would be worth a try if they overcome the rust / paint problems of jerry cans.
