And even if you could get an approved bottle (which you can't) you are only allowed to walk home with petrol in it. If you put it in your car it's dangerous-goods offense. If you keep a bottle of gasoline at home it's an environmental crime.

With the trucker's strike in Brazil people have been lining up to fill up bottles with petrol for their cars and motorbikes where they can. Except that a law was passed in 2008 saying just what sort of bottles are allowed to have petrol put in them.

Welcome to Brazil.
