    I would check DOT regulations on carrying fuel on your trailer first. I believe you are only allowed to carry a small amount of fuel on your trailer in METAL SAFETY CANS, not plastic. Plastic cans are NOT approved. You CAN be fined, if the issue is ever enforced.

    Do a search on here for gas cans and you will find the regulations.

    Transferflow.com has DOT certified transfer tanks for diesel and gas.

    But they can't be mounted on a trailer. They can only LEGALLY be mounted in the bed, directly behind the cab.
