I've driven a 110 with (I think) 6 or maybe 8 jerry cans on the front
of the roof rack (yea.. I know). it had evil body-roll on corners and
was a bit unweildy off-road but I managed with no real problems (apart
from the time I slipped off the bonnet with a full can of diesel in
each hand, ouch, the bonned was coated in sheet ice, as was everything
I'm fairly sure that you'll get your wrists slapped for using jerry
can holders on the sides of the vehicle here and in europe.
