Can you Carry Extra Fuel?

Quite often people are seen to be carrying gerry cans and other types of containers on the outside of the caravans and RV 's.

Firstly you must remember that mounting these types of things can add considerably to the weight and stability of your vehicle.

Additionally, Queensland Transport advise that the Dangerous Goods Act, and common sense for that matter, would prohibit readily combustible materials being carried in such a manner.

This means, therefore, that petrol should not be carried in gerry cans for instance on a rear mounted carry bracket or other dangerous place such as the front corners of the caravan which could be susceptible to accidental impact (Diesel is not a combustible material in this sense).
