What's the Story of Liwa's Yellow Truck ?


Recommended Posts

@Frederic - Prof. Need advice on Jerry cans, choices and options are crazy - varying from 50AED to 400AED.  Once a year use, however really concerned about quality (with associated risks, especially as will keep it inside the vehicle). 

Some specific queries

A  Metal or plastic? 

B. Any specific value the likes of AOR etc bring?

C. I have a 10ltr pretty old plastic one available (bought from a gas station 3-4 years back, not taken care off, lying around somewhere in storage box outside in courtyard). Should I be using (trying to be using) it? 

D. Could find online some options for 50-60aed, any feedback or specific things to check? 

Guidance plz.

What is Yellow Truck ? Buried deep inside the Bu Hasa Desert near Madinat Zayed City, there is an abandoned water tanker truck, which due to its remote location, has become a pilgrimage for many

Looks like the yellow truck needs a tug😜

Last I heard is that @Niki will be bringing his super shovel to help recover the truck...

If you are planning to put inside the vehicle, i would recommend the plastic ones. The metal ones are more suitable for putting in a pickup truck or mounting on the outside.

Try to get at least 20l, either in 1 jerrycan or two smaller ones. Strap them safely so they don't fly around.  The ones from the gas station are fine, have a look at Speedex as they have different models as well.

Don't forget to buy a spout as well. In some cars it might work by cutting a plastic water bottle, but in some cars it hardly works. On the small plastic ones the spout is included i think (the black hose).
