Another brawl broke out in the petrol queue when an unknown motorist tried to fill fuel in a bin bag.
Men in hi-vis uniforms began to wrestle with each other in broad daylight in front of other drivers who were waiting to fill up at Enfield, north London.
Activists threw punches at two other men in the middle of a busy street, before one of them took off his shirt and continued to fight.
They can be heard shouting at each other, with one saying “you didn’t need this” and the other shouting “come on” as drivers bang their horns on them.
The two women then attempted to break up the fight, with one of the men shouting “get back” before coming between the group.
Drivers are pictured filling several jerry cans across the country, prompting a shortage of receptacles.
Another wrong-minded driver attempted to fill a bucket with bin bags with petrol at a station with a £35 limit on fuel in a shell forecourt.
He was seen adjusting his facemask before he prepared to remove the bin bag from the bucket and take it with him.

Their attempt to obtain fuel is both illegal and dangerous, with users who watched the video worried that both the bag and the bucket would be breached.
The footage comes after a woman was mocked online for filling a water bottle with petrol and a man threatened another motorist with a knife.
An ambulance was also stuck after being down for four hours and the recovery trucks had no fuel to reach it.
The incident left a frail patient unable to go to a hospital in North Wales for an appointment.
It comes as Britain’s petrol crisis could last another month, even if drivers stop panicking now, with Boris Johnson planning to save Christmas.
Industry chiefs said it would take weeks to restore nearly dried-up fuel stations in days of massive panic from motorists.
Boris Johnson insisted the six-day crisis was now “stabilising” and downplayed fears that the impact on supply chains would hit Christmas.
He urged Brits to stop panic buying and start acting “the normal way” again as he unveiled plans to boost the number of lorry drivers available.
Soldiers will begin operating tankers to the courthouse from the end of this week, but there are fears that will not be enough to bring things back to normal.
‘Terror buying crisis’
Desperate Britons queued up again overnight and school buses were canceled and blood distribution stopped due to a lack of supplies.
There were reports of more fights on courts, with about a third of London’s black cabs now said to be off the road with empty tanks.
During the crisis, the ministers have insisted that there is no shortage of petrol in the country.
Yesterday the Prime Minister stressed that he was working hard to address the problems posed by the shortage of HGV drivers.
He blamed the panic buying crisis on a “slightly misleading” briefing about a shortage of truck drivers, which led to an “understandable increase in public demand”.
And he added: “Now we are starting to see an improvement in the situation. We are hearing from the fuel industry that supplies are coming to the forecourt in a normal way.
“We want to make sure we have all the preparations we need to reach Christmas and beyond, not only in supplying petrol stations but in all parts of our economy.
We want to make sure we have all the necessary preparations in place for Christmas and beyond.
PM Boris Johnson
“You’re going to see the global economy sucking in demand for a massive amount of gas for lorry drivers. We have to make sure we have everything.
“I really urge everyone to go about their business the normal way and fill in the normal way when you really need it.”
Up to 300 troops can now be deployed to help ease the supply crunch by running lorries if necessary.
They are all qualified to get behind the wheel, but it may still require three days of training to learn how to fill petrol stations.
Ministers are fast-tracking three-month visas for 5,000 truck drivers from abroad to help the UK address the shortfall.
But industry chiefs warned that many drivers across the continent would not want to come anyway amid fears that chipped plaster solutions are “too little, too late”.
The DVLA also has a huge backlog of 54,000 HGV license applications, which will take at least two months to clear.
