    I live in Washington State and I am in need of an transfer tank for the bed of my truck. You guys that run them with regular gas, could you fill me in on the laws and safety issues? I am curious if it is safe to run a 12 volt pump because of electricity spark concerns. I want the added convenience but I don't want to blow my self up, burn all of my stuff or get a huge fine. So you guys that run these, please, answer some questions. Have you ever had trouble, fire, heard of anything bad or know where to go for the laws in my state? Any help would be appreciated.

    I considered this issue. Of the transfer pumps (12V.) I looked at some said for gas and some said for diesel. I felt it was to risky at this time. Sorry not much help.
