Hi dear members !
I have just finished to fill my mower tank with a not suitable and a sad plastic jerrycan (what we call jerrican with bad English accent as usual in France) and I'm wondering what kind of tank was used in England in the 50' 60' for achieving well this task ?
Maybe some local retailer (let say Atco retailer) have sold a specific model as in France, for famous "VeloSolex" (cheap bike) retailers have sold "Solexine" in specific 2 liters tank (fuel came from BP in fact !) : http://solexin.free.fr/mecanique/solexine/.
I hope that I am understandable enough : I am just looking for a nice empty vintage tank which was (still be) popular in GB, not a petrol+oil mix which I can do myself !
Thanks for your advices.
PS : I was wrong concerning jerrycan noun history : I thought it was an American origin but it seems that it was an English word given to German metal tank during WWII. Are you agree ?
