CarPlan Unleaded Fuel Can @ ASDA £1.50

Found 23rd Jun 2013
Asda were selling these at £3.00 over the last few weeks. I went into the Cambridge store to buy another. They were £3.00 on the display, but they scanned at the till for £1.50. Good price I would say.

They hold 5L and are made of plastic.

This is a green fuel can for unleaded petrol.

A range of Carplan fuel cans from the No. 1 producer of fuel cans in the UK market and market leader for 25 years. All petrol cans conform to the Petroleum Spirit Regulations 1982 (SI 1982/630).

They undergo rigorous testing in strength, capacity, design, closure, internal pressure, permeability, weight, wall thickness, stress cracking and much more to ensure they fully comply with the appropriate regulations. These cans are colour coded for safe identification of fuels with easy to use flexible pouring spouts.

Can this be used to store Gin?

Yes, but be careful not to drink it afterwards.

Great price. Looking for one of these. Heated.

This is the sort of thing the pound shops should sell, its just a piece of plastic. I have stored petrol in 2l coke bottles loads of times.

Wouldn't recommend doing this for very clear and obvious reasons!

What reason?

What reason?

because coke bottles are thin plastic so prone to cracking and leaking - for the cost and safety reasons would not recommend storing in coke bottles,personally only an idiot would store petrol in any plastic bottle or container that its not designed to store petrol in

I have never seen a coke bottle with no seems crack. As I said I have done it before and guess what, I am still alive.

Petroleum will eventually eat through the PBT.

I once made the mistake of storing a leaking saint Moritz oven cleaner in a coke bottle. it melted the bottle and damaged untold things,! ()

This is cheaper than the RRP or a 2l bottle of Coke. Plus with the added bonus that you don't need to drink the sh*t.

I thought that legislation required you to store Petrol only in an approved container, but it seems not. See under containers at the following link at the HSE.

hse.gov.uk/fir…htm

But apparently you cannot store it inside your house.

going to buy 100 of these fill them up during some supermarket price cut offer and store them for when petrol goes up by 30p. That will make the cans work out free
(Your all laughing now but when petrol hits £1.60 I'll have saved £150 quid) hehe

Saquib Bashir, 28, caused a major alert, leading to the evacuation of 60 neighbouring properties and a £100,000 clean-up bill when fuel melted the bottom of the plastic bin and leaked into the cellar of his terraced house.At Derby Crown Court, Bashir admitted storing petrol without a licence and in non-metal containers. He was sentenced to eight months' imprisonment, suspended for two years, and ordered to pay £1,000 costs. Bashir had stockpiled 90 litres of fuel in a wheelie-bin, a beer barrel and a cooking-oil container at his home in Normanton, Derby. Later he told trading standards officers that he had no idea that petrol was so flammable

Yes, instore at Cambridge, as per the OP.

No idea if they have any left today.

Lets add some more heat.

Personally, I don't store fuel in coke bottles. But I was out in India, where everyone did! Their petrol is much nastier than outs and I didn't see anyone spontaneously combust! Nanny state again...!

I hate the nanny state as much as anyone but in this case think they may have a good reason to control petrol storage.

I am not suggesting you stockpile petrol in coke bottles in your garage, but if you run out and need to transport some a coke bottle will work.

One thing to remember, if you are a nanny, don't let your kids play with petrol, this can get you arrested. You can play the "by proxy" card though and get better lodgings.

If it's a good idea to put various chemicals and store them in empty coke bottles, make sure you rip the coke label off to stop anybody mistakenly thinking its Coke, beer or similar. oh and if you make home-brew in old plastic bottles mix them up for a bit of fun at a bbq. Seriously you don't know who's going to go in your shed and pick up an unlabeled bottle keep your petrol in a petrol can so everyone knows what it is

This is super hot!...I have only 3 to my name.
I may buy a few more to litter my garage up

ive sometimes been known to store coke in petrol cans.

Yes, but be careful not to drink it afterwards.



And also be careful no to fill up you car on Gin!

This was an episode of 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia'. Infact, 2 episodes!

Leaving aside your figures about £1.60 after that 30p increase... that is just the point at which you'll break even!!!! As you said they'd pay for themselves.

Then after that you'll be saving a fiver per 1p increase... minus the 50 odd trips to petrol stations as most only allow you to fill 2 cans at a time....

Meanwhile most of us will let the con-artist fuel companies and supermarkets store it for us. And also get a 5p/10p off per litre every couple months to get even more saving than you.

I know your comment may have been a joke but anyway have fun and good luck

I personally wouldn't store petrol in a Coke bottle, but do as you please!
I do a lot of car cleaning and use a thing called snow foam... Anyways I normally buy my cherry snow foam in 5 liter bottles, so decided to use a normal 1 liter plastic orange juice bottle to take it round to peoples houses when I need it rather than carrying a big bottle... Anyways even the snow foam ate through the bottle, so god knows what petrol will do if you store it.

Last fuel can I bought was £4.95 so if you can grab one of these Bargain

Heat added

I store petrol in my fuel tank. Holds 55 litres easily.

Don't see why people are messing around with 2 litre coke bottle...

When I got mine yesterday, there was a shelf full of them in the Cambridge store

Erm not true..

However, the 1982 regulations will still apply to non-workplace situations, including storage in domestic premises.

for me you can store as much petrol in coke or any plastic bottles you want to , as long as you live at least 200 hundred yards from the nearest person,risk killing yourself by all means but do not risk any other ones life while your doing it

I am living in Bulgaria
They store EVERYTHING in 2l fizzy bottles , olive oil, engine oil, Rakia, wine, but NOT petrol or diesel.
Problem with bulk storing fuel is that when the prices have risen , the petrol will be stale, we all know how quick it goes off in the UK.
Petrol here in BG smells like the UK petrol did years ago, & at around £1 per litre.
