You will require a petroleum licence if you store petrol in a tank or bowser for delivery into the fuel tank of a vehicle or other internal combustion engine.
When you apply for a licence you will receive a written acknowledgement. An officer from the Trading Standards Service will then contact you to discuss your application and the proposed storage and dispensing arrangements.
