You’ll probably find fuel bladders to be mega expensive, the cheaper ones about on fleabay etc are probably not suitable for use in the UK.
UK petroleum regulations are very keen these days, information regarding the contents, date of manufacture and expiry are heavily regulated.
I should imagine trying to fill one at a petrol station will be bloody hard work as most petrol pump attendants won’t have the faintest idea what they are and they are within their rights to refuse you purchase of fuel.

That said, they are a great idea, though I wouldn’t want an unbaffled bag in my little boat :no

These can be amazing if you can buy them at a decent price. I used the sausage ones and a very rare triangle one. Both 25l. As a guide the sausage ones are 'cheap' at about 80quid each. I sold my triangle one for 200!.

You will struggle to fill them at a petrol station and I used to use normal 25l tanks to fill them from at home.
