I carry 60 gallons of fuel in one truck (dual tanks) so I don't have to fill up so often.

I'm really considering putting a transfer tank in my new truck or maybe even on the trailer. But probably in the truck.

it would be nice to have tanks at the shop, but we are in the city and would have to put them underground which is totally not worth it all. it would cut a serious amount of time down each day though. right now we still fill up at the station about every other day.
