Just done a quick search on fuel storage; Appollogies for a long post but if you read as it is written It seems you can not store a full 20Ltr jerry can.

Regulations 1982. All containers in which petroleum spirit is kept must be of metal or an approved plastic. Metal containers should not exceed 23 litres capacity (5 gallons) be permanently labelled 'Petroleum Spirit - Highly Flammable' and be fitted with a secure leak-proof cap.
Plastic containers should not exceed 5 litres capacity and comply with the Petroleum Spirit (Plastic Containers)
Regulations 1982. It is illegal to buy or sell the older 10 litre plastic containers! Empty containers must be securely stoppered and kept in a safe place.

The quantity which may be kept without notifying the Licensing Authority (Trading Standards) is the amount of petrol contained in the fuel tank of the motor vehicles or engine and not more than 2 x 10 litres (2 gallons)metal containers or 2 x 5 litres plastic containers together with 1 x 10 litres metal container.
However, if the garage is directly connected to a dwelling house, the previous quantities may only be kept if the door connecting the garage and the house in self-closing and constructed of hard wood or other fire resisting material.
