    I seen a 10 gal gravity feed gas tank in a tool catalog that can be mounted on a trailer for easy refills. Has anyone seen or used these. In the catalog it says it is DOT compliant. 10 gals would be enough for me, has anyone got one of these or tired one? I been thinking of purchasing.

    I recently gave away a 35 gallon aluminum saddle tank for the same purpose.

    I had the tank in a shrimp boat. It had been used to hold diesel for the generator, when I replaced the main tanks I plumbed generator fuel from them so this one was just taking up space.

    I wish I had a picture for you. The fellow that got it set it up on his trailer. All it will take is a valve or two and some hose and viola - - Buy your gas at the station, fuel your equipment on site. No pump needed.

    Sounds good to me, I won't make a decision until winter for the next season.
