    Gas Pump/Storage

    I Recently purchased two vx cruisers and need some sort of gas storage. Each one holds about 16 gallons so I will need about a 30-40 gallon container. Something with a pump on it would be nice but is also somewhat light so we can lift it out of the car alter filling up. Any suggestions would be great, thanks.

    good luck lifting a container with 40 gallons of fuel out of your car. Even if the container was made out of unobtainum, you still have 6 pounds a gallon for fuel

    This sound more like a job for a pickup with dual tanks..or a gaggle of five gallon gas containers.

    overtons does sell a storage/dispenser that holds 12-16 gallons, but the reviews were less than favorable

    Exactly a 25 gallon portable fueler holds 150lbs just in gas, I bought 5 of those 6 gallon Midwest cans at Fleet Farm and then put the old school "replacement" nozzles/vents on them instead of those garbage CARB nozzles they come with nowadays. Other alternative is VP racing cans but those cost a bit more and aren't supposed to be transported and are "for racing fuel only" lol.

    If you have a truck you can slip this in front of the toolbox and throw an electric pump with a good length of hose...

    Alright, I guess I'll just go with some smaller cans then, I totally agree that those new nozzles are terrible where did manage to find the older style nozzles?

    diesel in those only buddy...

    RDS Auxiliary Transfer Fuel Tank is designed for transferring diesel fuel from bed of pickup truck to remote or heavy equipment. It is the user's responsibility to comply with local, state and federal requirements pertaining to safe transportation, loading and discharging of tank contents. Not intended to be used for gasoline. Cannot be used to transfer gasoline to another vehicle.

    the DOT is really picky about gasoline transportation, hence my suggestion on the dual tank pickup

    now if you were really slick, you'd have a trailer made out of the back end of an f250, and that would give you a no questions asked 25 gallon fuel tank

    a half dozen 5 gallon cans doesn't seem so bad now..I think they make those "quick dunk" cans in up to 8 or maybe 10 gallons..check summit racing to see what they got.

    I hope you aren't planning on hauling gas INSIDE your car.

    I see no problem with driving a couple cans a mile or two down the street?

    No offense....but carrying loaded fuel cans inside a vehicle is simply beyond stupid. You'd be better off trying them to the trunk lid
