Fitting Jerry Cans

Hi all,

I have a 110 Defender CSW 12 seats, I have taken out the back 6 seats and am
modifying the boot for our Africa Trip.

I have decided to attach a Jerry Can to outside the car on the passenger
side boot, with a proper Jerry Can Cradle, it is impossible to fit it the
other side because of the fuel tank filler. Will it upset the balance of the
vehicle by just having a jerry can on one side, the other three will be on
the roof.

Any help

Andrew

Bloody hell! How big is the jerry can!?

The 110 wont even notice there's a jerry can on the back, full or otherwise.
The three on the roof will be more of a problem but even then not much of
one unless you're getting into situations where every degree of lean angle
counts.

second that.

your average jerry can carrys 20 litres of petrol, therefore a full can
would weigh about 25 kilos by my best estimate. i dont think this is
anywhere near enough to upset the balance of your 110.

I think you'll find that a jerry can on one side of the vehicle will
definitely cause the 110 to tip over at the slightest provocation.

Honestly ;-)

Re: Fitting Jerry Cans

You ARE putting a heck of a lot of weight, well above the centre of
gravity of the vehicle. Just be aware of it.

agreed that the jerry cans on the roof-rack are a little awkward, but one on
the rear of the vehicle is not really worth worrying about.

It's tempting to allow for it when arranging storage, but it's a smaller
left/right difference than you can get from using fuel on an SWB, and
much less than the difference a passenger makes.

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
else).
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.


Regards.
Mark.
