Next season when you’re stocking up for that extended cruise, don’t forget to fill the fuel jerry-cans from a garage and use the car to hump them down to the boat. In their infinite wisdom, our government has declared that red diesel in cans on boats is illegal, and there is no get-out clause. Not even a tax-paid receipt can keep you out of the caboose. It’s too easy for a diligent officer looking to his targets to check up on our criminal activity in this way, so don’t give them the chance to slip the handcuffs on you for a lamb. Save your powder to fire at a decent-sized sheep.
