Thinking about using a fuel transfer tank this year to cut down on stopping at the gas station every morning. Thoughts?

The way I see it, you'll still have to stop for fuel, but to me, you'll spend more time filling everything up plus the time it takes to fill the mowers from the transfer tank. I can only see it helping if you have to drive out of the way to fill up. Other then that, I think you're going to spend even more time dealing with fuel then you would if you just stop each morning.

ive got a tank that will work with gas. dont have to have a permit to carry it just has to be marked. my thoughts where i can fill up while everyone is getting to the shop and dont have 3 paid people setting in the trucks while filling everything up at the gas station. plus they will all have to go inside and get something to eat/drink and then we are burining time we could be out mowing.

filling from the transfer tank will actully be faster than the pump at the gas station because the pump on the tank is rated higher gpm then a standard pump at the station

I have a custom made 24 gallon tank on the tongue of my enclosed trailer. I keep (3) two and a half gallon cans for mix gas on top of my fender boxes in the trailer. When I need mixed gas, I can take a can(or 2 or 3) to the tongue, and gravity feed into the cans. Its much more convenient mixing mixing 22-24 gallons at a time than 2 or 5 gallons all the time.
