    Anyone havea link to a place where I can get an electric pump that would run off by truck battery? I want something that will fill my PG faster than the engine on my 50 gallon Lesco Tank!

    I found a live well pump at Wal Mart for about $18. it is threaded and screwed right into my tank outlet. it fills my PG tank in about 1 minute! I have also seen these pumps on Ebay. I used a shure flow pump for a while but it took 4-5 min to fill and that pump cost about $70.

    DO you run it off your truck battery?

    yes, just run a line from the positive battery cable and attach the ground wire from the pump to the frame of the truck. and put on a on/off switch.
