I put forward my understanding that I could take 30l in plastic containers in the car....his reply "you may CARRY that, I can only sell max of 5l into containers - ? How are we meant to fuel boats?
We did reach a satisfactory understanding without me having to pull into the petrol station 6 times.
Good day on the water despite very lumpy seas outside of the river. Boat performing very well.
I guess I have been very lucky then, I have always taken both my 22.5 ltr tanks out of my rib and taken them to my local sainsburys in the back of my car and filled them up on the forecourt floor and never been challenged. I've also done the same at other stations as well with the same result. I must admit until reading this thread I didn't think that I was doing anything wrong, however, I'll keep doing it until told otherwise that's because I'm a stubborn "Old Git"
p.s. Glad you had a good day on the water
