I would have no qualms at all about calling the police for someone with an illegal amount of petrol in a car or anywhere else, for that matter.
Well, great news , will that be country wide ttt, or just your wee corner of England ?
Where might that be, because it's not the case where I live
I hope so.... mine will be on red soon, and I need it for work. Trying to wait until it calms down a little though. We've had queues apparently around all the local stations, blocking roads.
Ther really should be a minimum of £30, and no portable containers. Because otherwise, people can just top up by a fiver, which they don't really need right now.
Not sure what your asking for anne , he never said she'd driven past everyone in the country
'wee corner' seems quite fitting here Anne.
Yesterday, my petrol tank showed half full. I went to my local Tesco filling station, and joined the queue. The queue never really stopped moving, and I was in the queue for just 5 minutes. I filled my tank with E10 petrol (the E5 was not available, but I didn't want that, anyway) and I picked up a newspaper as well! All done and dusted in a few minutes, and no restrictions on how much I could spend.
BHG, what crime are they committing ?
I agree with Pixie on a minimum amount but I would allow a single can for lawn mowers etc.
It's illegal to have more than 3 x 5 litre containers of petrol, which must be of the approved type. Diesel is different because it's not so dangerous.
Why did you feel the need to fill it up when you already had half a tank full bb?

15:41, no idea anne just looking at what I can see and that's probably replicated all over.

I remember the last fuel crisis, some eejit had a wheelie bin full of petrol in his garden!
It calmed down here yesterday.

LB: "Why did you feel the need to fill it up when you already had half a tank full bb? " - well now you getting into the realm of the full/empty/half tank brigade! My mate has all his cars full at all times. So he's always ready for a crisis. Mine are never over half full. LB I suspect the BB is a full tank type!
ladybirder: I am not prepared to run my petrol tank down until the red light shows, and then tour the filling stations in the hope of getting some petrol. I don't do much mileage these days, and it is my habit to fill up at the weekend, anyway. I joined the (smallish) queue at Tesco because it was just that, small. I do not panic buy anything, but I am a cautious person, and I do not care to sail close to the wind.
Ttt. You think ‘ it’s replicated all over ‘ . I hope you are right .
Anne - 2 jerry cans are permitted in a cart, max 10 litres per can - if metal. If plastic, it's 2 x 5 litres.
Whats a nobedski ? is it someone from your little corner? lol
in a car.....!
