“If you do absolutely need to travel with excess fuel in a container outside of your fuel tank, it’s important to consider the amount of time your fuel is going to be sat in your vehicle for and at what temperature.

“Fuel has a shelf life of up to six months if stored at 20C, or three months when stored at 30C.”
