Was it the full gas can?
I prefer the smaller ones on public transport such as the 3.9 kilo.
if it was a 47kilo one then its no wonder. http://www.thecalorgascentre.co.uk/home/calor-gas-47kg-propane-gas-cylinder?language=en&currency=GBP...

I carried a full 19Kg propane gas bottle for around a mile - I was wondering why I struggled so much with is (only 19Kg - I should have managed it easily) until I Googled it and found it was actually 43Kg gross weight ........

I suppose carrying a 25 Kg bag of Rock Salt was a bit trying too.
