A1 Motor Stores sent us this advice when purchasing petrol and diesel in approved metal or plastic containers for e.g. how much are you allowed and where to store it?
Petrol is dangerous-it should be kept away from any means of ignition and do not smoke when using it.
Petrol must not be stored in a house or a flat. Containers of petrol should only be stored in a well-ventilated, secure, fireproof building, away from all sources of ignition. Containers of petrol must not be stored under the stairs or near doors. Ideally, there should be a fire extinguisher of foam or dry powder type, accessible to the storage place and a bucket of dry sand available to soak up any spillage.
In addition to the amount of petrol stored in the tank of any motor car/engine, you can only store up to 2 x 10 litres in approved metal cans or 1 x 10 ltr metal with 2 x 5 ltr approved plastic containers – all available from your local A1 Motor Stores.
The legislation controlling the storage of quantities of petrol greater than 2 x 10 litres is complex and generally a licence is required. Storage of large amounts without a licence, may result in the person responsible being prosecuted.
