A warning has been issued over a little-know Tesco petrol station rule that has caught a few people out.
You would think that filling up the petrol tank should be a rather simple one, park up, load up, and off you pop.
Yes, it might be rather stressful for a new driver, but you certainly get the hang of it after you've visited a few times.
You have probably on many occasion ended up getting some petrol after the weekly food shop, with most supermarkets having petrol stations attached to them these days.
But if you have done this at Tesco before, then you might not have been aware of their rule when it comes to filling containers.
And the rule is that you can only fill up a maximum of two containers, both of which must not exceed 30 litres between them.
As per the Basingstoke Gazette, a Tesco spokesperson said: "Under the Petroleum Consolidation Regulations, we are required to have a policy in place to ensure the safe use of portable fuel containers at our petrol stations.
"Our policy is that only two portable containers (with a maximum combined capacity of 30 litres) may be filled on each visit by a customer."
The warning comes after a man from the UK tried filing up three full cans of petrol last year - which is obviously against the rules.
Last year, Malcolm Cupis, from Keevil, Wiltshire, went to fill up three cans, as well as his car, in March 2022.
Malcolm was later told by Tesco on Twitter that the law comes under the Carriage of Dangerous Goods and the European Agreement Regulations.
So, think carefully when you are next stockpiling the fuel.
LADbible has reached out to Tesco for further comment.
In other Tesco news, a man was left 'gobsmacked' after filling up his car with £15 worth of petrol and noticing that £120 had gone out of his bank account.
The driver, named Scott, had visited the Esso Tesco in Ardwick Green, and paid at the pump but after checking his account later that day he was shocked to find £120 had been taken instead of the £15 he thought his fuel would cost.
After retuning to the petrol station, Scott noticed staff had put up a sign at the cash desk saying: "Please note, paying at pump with your card will automatically charge £120 then refund the difference back to your account from your fuel total."
A Tesco spokesperson apologised for the incident and said that 'the funds that are reserved whilst a customer refuels at Pay at Pump should be immediately released back into the customer’s account.'
