Storage of Petrol / Diesel Fuel

What is the limit of the amount of
I can store for domestic use?

The Petroleum Spirit (Motor Vehicles etc.) Regulations 1929 and the Petroleum Spirit (Plastic Containers) Regulations 1982
limit the amount of petrol that can be kept in a domestic garage
or within six metres of a building
(e.g. most domestic driveways).

The limit is a maximum of two suitable metal containers each of a maximum capacity of ten litres or two plastic containers
(which have to be of an approved design)
each of a maximum capacity of five litres.

These limits also apply to any containers kept in a vehicle
parked in the garage or on the driveway
(but not to the internal fuel tank of the vehicle).

Under no circumstances should  Petrol / Diesel containers be stored in the home itself.

Petrol is a dangerous substance which, when present can dramatically increase the risk of fire.
It is recommended that members of the public keep any storage of petrol to a minimum.
 "Public safety is our overriding concern & we would like to remind people to focus on their own safety at all times."
 "We would like to ensure that members of the public who are considering storing petrol on their properties are adhering to the following legal requirements:
  • Do not fill a container more than the capacity printed on the label
  • Do not store petrol inside domestic premises
  • Store petrol in a place that is not part of or attached to a building used as a dwelling
  • Petrol must be stored in approved plastic or metal containers of the sort that can typically be purchased from fuel filling stations
  • Members of the public can store up to 30 litres of petrol in two, appropriate 10 litre metal containers and two, appropriate 5 litre plastic containers
  • If storing fuel, ensure it is in the correct type of containers and in limited amounts 
  • Petrol is not only highly flammable but is extremely corrosive and if is not stored in suitable containers it could wear away the container, causing leaks
  • If storing petrol in commercial premises ensure you are complying with the Fire Safety Order
  • Look at the risks involved. We would advise reviewing risk assessments if you are going to change the amounts of petrol you have stored
  • Ensure stocks of petrol are secure. Petrol is expensive and could be at risk of being stolen or used in arson attacks.
