    I picked up one of the 15 gal. tanks from northern tool that looks like a compressed air tank. it's gravity feed so no need for a pump. what i like is that i can strap it in when needed and when it's empty it's easy to take out. it has a nozzle and valve that keep the fuel from flowing and enough hose to reach from the bed to the backhoe tank fill. some people mount them on the upper side of their bed similar to a compressor on a service truck.

    i have an L shaped tank and i love it. holds about 400 litres worth. sets my tool box about 10-12" back as the top of the L sits at the front top of the box. I wont own a pickup without one.

    if your asking me about the Chevy Jr., I can move it from truck to truck wherever it's needed. Most of the time it rides in my little mazda truck with the tools. I have been using the little truck for most running around and trying to limit towing miles. 25mpg gas compared to 14mpg diesel has saved quite a bit of money.
