if its diesel you are after, you can find a local biodiesel maker and have them bring their tank and fill your tank...
dunno about petrol though.
It's acquiring that tank that seems to be the issue. I guess I'll keep buying the 20 liter jerry cans for now.

Wouldn't you be able to buy a large 2nd hand storage petrol tank from one of the tiny country gas stations that seem to be closing left-right and center?

A kerosine tank would work.. I used one like this for my biodiesel.. with a modified top to put a pump in to get the stuff out to the car. The biodiesel dude modified it for me.

That'll be the fault of all those devilish EV drivers riding around :twisted:. Sorry man couldn't resist but given how cheap it is to run an EV compared to a petrol engine most of those gasoline stands are living on borrowed time and I'm not sure I'll mourn them too much.
