    What is everyone using for filling their equipment? I would really like to go with the tanks under the body but I can't find anything on the net. There is also fuel caddy but that takes up floor space and fumes in the box. This would be for gas not diesel. Thanks for your help.

    Northern tool has transfer tanks for gas. I guess you would have to fabricate an underbody mount.

    From my experience tanks under body transfer tanks are not approved by the DOT. We had a old 1981 dump truck with underbody diesel transfer tank, we took it in for a DOT inspection a number of years back and we were notified that the tank had to be removed to be DOT compliant.

    The fuel station in my link is similar to what SLT uses. It has 40 gallons of regular fuel and 20 gallons mix.
