1982 Skye 51
I am heading up to PNG and Indonesia in a few weeks and this time I will have an extra piece of equipment, a gasoline powered dive copmpressor. There will be five of us on board, all divers, so the thing will be running a lot. I want to take some extra gas above the regular jerry cans I carry for dinghy fuel but they are trerribly expensive here in NZ/. The shop near my mooring has loads of these oil and hydraulic fluid jugs in the recycling area and i was wondering, Why not use some of these? They are obviously OK for petroleum products and very sturdy. Because they have no vents, if I avoid filling them all the way to leave room for expansion, is there any reason i shouldn't carry these as backup? I will clean them thoroughly with a bit of diesel first. Any red flags here?
