what store ? - I bet the spout costs more than the can - good price for the can

The problem with these is they do not have a spout. OK with a funnel for filling a mower but without a dedicated spout impossible to tip into a car filler.

I have a 20L can with a spout that you buy separately (machine mart) - which has been good since the last fuel shortages, but they won't let me fill it up now as 10l is the max - but for filling the mower we use a little pump which costs a £1 from ebay (great apart from the drips)

pull up stand by the car looking like you've got the nozzle in to fill the car, then fill the can when they have started the pump...... works every time

You must be doing a lot of mowing,. For the best really, better safe than sorry. The last time I used my two 20ltr cans was the fuel shortage a few years back.
We have 24hr pumps at our Asda, I assume you can fill up to £99 when the service desk is closed.

Incidentally Homebase had some a few weeks back but not as cheap as these, assume diy stores were getting a deal from suppliers at the time.

The law has changed and 20 litre cans are now OK as long as you only use one.

And it's metal. Not many places sell the plastic ones in the large size anymore.

Just what I needed thanks!

I never have problems filling up 20 litre cans, they are legal. I fill one with premium unleaded most weeks at a Shell station.

can i use this for shower gel?

absolutely none near me in Glasgow

Nice find,was looking for one of these

I believe there is an exception for plastic outboard engine fuel tanks, certainly my father has never mentioned having any problem filling up his 22 litre and 10 litre tanks at his local supermarket garage, although I don't think he takes the 22l one to the garage that often as he rarely uses more than half a tank in a trip.

Fuel tanks are not fuel storage containers so are not included in the regulations.

It like those elusive Tesco deals - a non offer - very few stores seem to have stock

I get the furthest pump from the forecourt window.

problem I have is the boot on my car is small so the can has to go on it's side and will then leak/ drip and smell - so I normally put it in the back door behind the drivers seat so it sit's upright - so to fill it I have to put it down on the floor and try to hide it while I fill it - I have had the attendant stop the pump before, they seem very sure that it is not allowed!
anyway might get the 10L so my wife can pick it up rather than getting me to get it out of the car

I also do the "stand it behind the driver's seat" trick so I pop the nozzle in quickly while it looks like I'm filling up the car. At the moment I have a people carrier and I can slide the side door open and fill all 5 of 20 litre cans if I'm on the far side of the forecourt.

I would have to go 5 times !

Managed to get the last three from Stockton, but they were in a right state! Well battered and one had a big rusty dent.
