Great. I need one of these.

Be careful!

The fuel must be stored in cans permanently marked with 'highly flammable' and 'petroleum spirit'. The 20 litres may be divided into two 10 litre metal cans or one 10 litre metal can and two 5 litre plastic cans. Storage in more than two 5 litre plastic containers is illegal.

Great price, haven't even seen the 10l this cheap.

Probably Ex German army issue;-)

QUICK EVERYBODY BEGIN HOARDING, I'M FILLING MINE WITH TESCO VALUE BEANS AND SAUSAGES.

Not for an emergency, it'll make a hearty breakfast.

This looks like a good deal, but it seems it's only legal for diesel.
The largest container you're allowed to keep petrol in is a 10 litre can.

Yeah, exactly- so what is the point of these if you can't store more than 10l of petrol in one can? They've also got to be a certain distance from each other/from domestic use.

Legal, schemgal.

you could get 10 litres from 1 petrol station and 10 litres from another:)

shouldn't this be called a petrol can, isn't jerry can american name or something?

hmm didn't know about that rule, guess my 1000litre tank over half full in my garden is not allowed then :w00t:

seeing as petrol at my local petrol station comes down in price nearly every week why would i want to store petrol?

Yes but its not a bargain when you add £10.69 to 20 litres.:w00t:

The restrictions on how much you can store are for your own (and other people's) safety. You choose to break them, something goes wrong, guess who's fault that'd be? (Still, you might get to feature in the 2009 Darwin awards...)

Yes or no answer please:

If I bought this 20l can, can I store 20l of diesel in my boot?

In answer to your comment, not everyone drives a petrol car.

In answer a question about why they are called Jerry cans. This came from the WWII when the Britsh were shipping fuel around in very flimsy tin cans. However, when they captured some German fuel they noticed that their design was much better an copied it.

wish I was near your local garage, my local 1 (a tesco!!) put prices up by 1p petrol and 2p a litre on diesel last week. Then everybody else in the city followed as a consequence but just by 1p a litre on both.

I think you'll find those requirements come from The Petroleum Spirit (Motor Vehicles etc.) Regulations 1929 and the Petroleum Spirit (Plastic Containers) Regulations 1982. As such it seems to only apply to vehicles stored in a garage or within 6m of a building.

It appears to be legal to dispense petrol into suitable metal containers up to 23 litres.

Hi Guys and Girls

I have many times driven from Germany to England and back with one of these in my car just in case I ran out on the way.
I have been stopped by customs several times and they have never batted an eye lid at the fact I have an extra 20l in my car. Hope this helps

Lol, you're allowed to fill these with up to 23 litres but you aren't allowed to store more than 10 litres in one at your premises. Stuoopid rule!?

These are great for boat owners, as you are not allowed to fill the removable boat tanks on the forecourt as they have 2 holes in the structure of the tank.

Not stoopid at all. Horses for courses.
