From the HSE :
"How many containers can I fill at a petrol station?
Petrol filling stations may have their own internal policy on the types and numbers of containers they are prepared to fill - frequently one or two 5 litre plastic and/or one or two 10 litre metal. This is a decision made by the filling station operator and is not a legal requirement.
Petrol filling stations usually have to abide by a licence condition to allow only 'suitable' containers to be filled. This is usually interpreted as metal containers up to a maximum size of 23 litres or plastic containers up to a maximum size of 5 litres. A licence condition has the same effect as a legal requirement. The licence condition does not limit how many containers one customer may fill."

The nicest thing about not planning is that failure comes as a complete surprise, and is not preceded by a period of worry and doubt.
Thanks for that
Seems I have to break their rules to fill my boat
"It was the crew's fault"
is there any legal way to fill 2 x 30 litre hulk plastic petrol containers??
On a Saturday morning during the season nearly every lane has someone filling up jerry cans and portable boat fuel tanks.
