    Hey anybody know what I am talking about ??? From what I heard you need to have this on your truck or trailer if carrying more than 13 or 15 gallons of fuel at a time ? I tried searching and found nothing and tried the net and nothing there except the United Nations, Dont think thats what I'm looking for..

    My question is .. How and where do I get this # from , does it cost anything, whats' involved , etc, etc, etc, Thanks
     
  2. State regulations for carrying a hazardous material.

    Different states different regulation.

    I am going to assume it's a DOT number, may be wrong, but I know I'm close.

    I believe that is what a UN number is. For transportation of hazardous material between countries. (I just thought you wanted to know what UN numbers were.)

    I haven't seen any UN number for DOT regulations...

    Call the state sheriff's office, they should know what numbers you need and are required to have on your vehicle. Hopefully they do, otherwise they could point you in the right direction.
