Fuel Cans.

Anyone know of any decent alternatives to the crappy forecourt fuel cans available?

I have had 3 black PVC 10 litre diesel can for 13 years and they are still going strong! they have each had a good hammering either loose in the back of car sometime rolling about or in the boat in rough water and never leaked.

They are still in stores around the coast. Aladdins cave and motor factors sell them.
