Check your petrol cans!

Just a quick H&S update. ;-)

I was out in the garden and got a whiff of fuel - I followed my nose to the garage and found petrol pissing all over the place. One of my 5l containers had ruptured on the side where it's embossed with the makers mark and a good 3 litres had sprayed out of the pinhole.

I've moved everything out of the puddle and hopefully nothing will make the garage explode while it evaporates off. Unfortunately, there were some plastics bits on the shelves below which are now shagged. It also got all over my new tyres that are awaiting fitting and I'm hoping they won't be knackered...

If you've got any fuel containers, do yourself a favour and crack the tops off half a turn before they pop!
