quight common on farms out here in the country in the land of oz, gravity fed is probably the easiest, pretty expensive when you get a 5000 Liter Diesel Tank filled up but the truck will come to you.

but 44 Gal Drum with a hand crank pump on it, is usually the easiest, strap it to your ute and leave it on your farm. or the boot of a lay-land p76, designed to carry a 44 gal drum


plenty of race filler set ups too which look awsome, u know, the drums, and a push valve you just insert and push and it fills your tank up in seconds. just like a real racer.


some need special receiver dry break tank caps, others dont. so check when you buy a quick fill fuel jug

Used to work for a parks department and we used those, took a truck with a lift gate to take it to the gas station though.

I wouldn't use that plastic thing, it's too heavy to pick up when full and sliding plastic will generate static electricity.

I have a gravity fed 15 gallon one, I love it. Bike, lawnmower, atv, whatever. I have a rope on it with a pulley in the rafters to raise it up, and a small shelf built to hold it.

When I was a kid we had one of these on our farm. I think somebody came out to fill it up for us. We quit using it because people would ask to top off their tanks. And this was back when gas was only 75 cents.
