I don't like carrying petrol containers inside a vehicle and while I know that a roll or being rear ended by a vehicle with a high front end (like a lifted truck) could cause a fireball too, I've been looking at my standard Cabrio (with tailgate) spare tire holder as a possible mounting place.
My main concern is how much weight that mount can tolerate over bumpy, washboard roads. I'll have the spare mounted in front of it so there is a leverage issue too.
I'd be mounting a NATO can with 20l of petrol so that would be an additional 45-55 pounds with the mount and the can itself.
Has anyone tried this?
