Default Portable diesel tanks

My plastic portable diesel tank has started to bulge out one end, so I guess the baffle has come away inside. Thought I ought to renew it before it bursts!
Looking for another portable plastic tank of about 400 litres.
The regs say you can transport non bunded tanks of this size, but some websites are saying the rules have been updated to you can transport the diesel in non bunded, but to dispense it on site you then need a bunded area to do it in. Anyone heard of this? Is it true? If so it would seem to be a backdoor way of stopping the use of small non bunded tanks. I also wonder if it applies to cans. I fill my small stuff from 10 or 20 litres spill proof cans, but are these outlawed as well?
Thanks
Graham

Not all integral so would need external pump but it is bunded for the correct size

Am concerned about using 10 litre cans of petrol and diesel.

What do other people use for onsite refueling?
Am I being over paranoid worring about the cans. Looked at the plant nappy idea Eddie uses but it doesnt meet the 110% bund so not sure this even complies.

I use Bunded Bowser with Auto cut off on trigger,plant nappy under filler just in case not on the bowser on wheels but seems to work at moment Lock or remove hitch and clamp wheels if it has to be left on site but its only ever going to be a deterrent anyone that wants it bad enough will have it gone

There have been delays on the Menzi. Hoping to have it in a couple of weeks - fingers crossed.
Regarding bowsers I had a 1000l towable, but swapped to smaller so it could go in the back of the pickup. Just concerned about the new rules I am reading about saying everything must be bunded at the time of filling even though you can transport certain ones unbunded.
