    As said as long as the container meets Australian Standards all is Ok and colour is not a real issue. There is a colour coding system but it is only voluntary.
    Red - Petrol
    Yellow or Black - Diesel
    Green - Two Stroke Mix

    Yes colour coding is important and for that reason it would not be a good idea to start mixing and matching. Otherwise one day someone will do the wrong thing and end up with diesel in their petrol engine or vice versa.
    Stick with black=diesel.

    Well, if someone nicks my red container of diesel and sticks it in his petrol car, I won't be too upset about any damage sustained!

    I wrote DIESEL on the container, hopefully it should be obvious
