    Looks good, but I think you would have to do a lot of mowing in a day to utilize that much fuel and to make it pay for itself. I can run all day on one five gallon can of fuel and a two and a half gallon of mix.

    It is a bit expensive. It was better priced i would like the idea of getting gas once every week or 2.

    everytime one of my crews goes to the gas station its a 45 min ordeal with at least 4 guys so if you could get enough gas to do it everyother week that would pay for itself eventually.. but ive seen those tanks cheaper...

    The first time your gas get's stolen, or contaminated (intentionally or not) you may not be too happy with a tank like that. The liability alone of having a bomb like that on the tongue of your trailer would keep me from even thinking about it.

    How do step foot into a vehicle.....everytime you get into your truck or car its a missle loaded with 25gallons of fuel! I would also mount it in the truck bed, not on a trailer

    I was thinking more along the lines of leaving it at the shop. Then you could fill everything up in the evening and be ready for morning.

    It's not the gas that scares me. It's the liability of mounting that tank somewhere and being responsible for an "owner modified" vehicle.
