Be aware that the limit for fuel at filling stations is currently 15L per container. Consider the additional 5L air gap as useful to allow for expansion and contraction.

I have two 20L jerry cans like this which have served me well over at least 15 years of garden use (very large garden with plenty of petrol powered tools & equipment). More recently, I've found myself taking them to Costco to maximise on the amount of fuel I can buy when visiting, it usually being at least 10p a litre cheaper than my home town.

You need to budget for a metal pouring spout which attaches to the can using the same mechanism as the lid/seal because you won't be able to pour out of these cans without one.
Any idea how long diesel will keep in one of these before, and even if, it goes bad
Have you been watching The Walking Dead?
Fun fact trivia fans....
Did you know that the rear lights on the Jeep Renegade are modelled after these cans?

And another fact

The history of the jerrycan is notable because the German design was reverse engineered and subsequently copied, with minor modifications, by the Allies during the Second World War. The name of the jerrycan refers to its German origins, Jerry being slang for Germans.

Hi, no, I wasn't aware? Is that a law, or petrol station specific?

I got a couple to take advantage of the 10p off a litre deals, technically you can load up with 100 litres on one voucher.

I dont think you need to worry about expansion and contraction with a metal jerry can, they are designed for 20L as standard!
Not showing on there website. If someone finds them in another branch please post.?

Indeed, the Allied design couldn't even stack, which seems pretty fundamental... I'm surprised we're still allowed to call them Jerry cans.

Petrol station specific, some others would let you buy as much as you want and that is not illegal. It is illegal to have more than 20L(only in 2 separate 10L cans) in the boot. Also it is legal to use any colour you like even so they are specific to a certain contents.

The law says that you can store or transport up to 20L in a metal can or 10L in a plastic one, but strangely it doesn't give any guidance on what happens at the pump, how many cans you can fill, etc, that seems to be left to the discretion of the petrol station owner/operator.
I've been filling a 20L jerry can for years to take maximum advantage of of these 10p off a litre deals and never had a problem.

The limit is actually 30L

Correct. Also looks like that the 20L container is illegal to transport but ok for storage.

Petrol, what about diesel, thats more inert?
Rock Hudson and George Peppard are going to be on the telly at 4.45 using these in anger. But they really come into their own with John Mills, Harry Andrews and Anthony Quayle slinging them around the desert.
Excellent been thinking of getting a couple of these for a while to make some outdoor speakers
Or turn them into mini bar

Never seen it enforced.
