Re: Refused fuel..!!

I Regularly fill up 4x20L Jerrys at a time and once or twice have filled a 150 litre drum in the back of my truck (had of course to put the handle back at 100litre and start again), it all depends on the station (I find those with low paid foreign staff to be particularly helpfull :D )
