Can I travel with a fuel can?

Fuel Cans

As per the latest Marine Guidance Note (MGN 545), customers can carry the following:

For travel from the UK to the Continent and Republic of Ireland (UK to Northern Ireland can ship both ways)

  • a maximum of 5 litres of petrol / diesel per vehicle
  • in an approved container i.e. container sold for the purpose of fuel transportation only (red/green plastic can).
  • in a private vehicle not in commercial use.

For travel from the Continent to the UK:

  • fuel cans, if carried, must be empty
  • customers must ensure that the fuel can is washed and that no residue remains as it is the fumes that are the risk.
