I got a feeling

that you can only store two gallons of petrol on your premises after that your home insurance is void and you are breaking the law. Might be wrong but this info dates back to the real fuel crisis of 1973/4 when we were all issued with petrol coupons. Of course peps in those days were DIY orientated most serviced/repaired their cars/bikes at home and wernt stupid like todays muppet motorists.

that story by chance on a Fazer forum and read it in stunned amazement.

I'm probably a bad man for this, but I couldn't help but laugh at the sheer stupidity of it.....

And there was me thinking Sunday was April Fool's day :lol:

Pasty Storage

What!

you have room to store pasties.

All my spare space is taken up with jerry cans, milk & pop bottles, measuring jugs & roasting tins etc. (covered with cling film for safety where necessary) full of petrol.
