    Default PICTURES comparing my new set up to the old one

    Old set up.


    Cramped up in a little 3x4 foot corner of this car port.

    Only one 30 gallon drum.

    My New Set Up


    Put it in this 8 X 10 building.
    Much roomier than the little 3x5 corner was.

    This system has a 30 and a 55 gallon drum plumed into it.

    Looks good. What is your pump? Looks like a 12v one.

    Does it suck fuel from the bottom of those plastic tanks without priiming?

    Where'd you get the tanks?

    1* Thanks :The 12 volt pump is from Northern Tool and does a great job.
    They now carry one about like in in another brand $99.00.
    I lucked out and got the pump on sale for 69 bucks.
    2*It's self priming ; so yes it does.
    3*I got the 2 drums at a flea market .
    I also have a few more of the 30 gallon drums i bought from a private party in WV and a couple more of the of the 55 gallon ones I bought from another guy in WV.
    This new set up is quite an improvement over what I had in the car port.

    Thanks: It's much better and handier to use than what I had in the carport.
    This set up has some significantly unique differences from most others.

    1*There are 2 hoses going to the inlet side of the pump rather than just one.
    2*There are 2 drums plumbed into it instead of only one.
    3*The pump sets on a shelf out away from the drum not on top of the drum like most others do.
    4*There is no need to disconnect the drum from the set up to take it anywhere to have it filled .However easy disconnection is provided if desired thanks to the pump not being installed on top of the drum .
    5*This set up transfers fuel from any container not just the drum plumbed into it.
    This is the result of the second hose that goes to the inlet side of the pump. This is the hose hanging on the green hose hanger.The hose has a white tip on the end.
    6*You don't have to wait until you run out of fuel before you can refill the drum like you do with most other set ups.
    7*You are always running fresher fuel because you are never mixing old and new fuel together.
    8*It always takes the same amount of fuel to fill it up.55 gallon each time.
    9*The ratio of additive(s) added per gallon always stays the same and never varies.
    10*There is no handling of drums of fuel or moving them around so no tractor or other handling equipment is required.
    This is especially great for those who don't have forks or a FEL for their tractor
    ********
    I put a lot of time thinking and planing into designing this set up before I built it.

    It is a 50 Chevy with 39600 miles on the clock
    I bought it in 1976 and am the 3Rd owner.
    Gas was 50 cents a gallon then.
    I have the history on it from when it was purchased new.
    I bought it for semental reasons because my first car was a 1950 Chevy 4 door sedan 3 speed stick shift that I bought when I was 17 back in 1958.It had 80000 miles on the clock.
    Hard to believe that was exactly 50 years ago.
    That old car beings back lots of memeries of the good old days.
    Gas was 25 cents a gallon then.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    What year did you buy the 49 Chevy?
    How old were you then?
    I bought a real nice low milage 49 Chevy back in 1964.
    It was a 4 door sedan 3 speed stick shift exaxtly like the 50 Chevy I had in 1958 , even the same color of green.
    I sold it in 1966 with only 44000 miles on it at the time.
    You have no Idea how many times I've kicked my rear for getting rid of it.

    The only differences between the 49 and 50 is the grill taillights and the trunk lid handle.

    I bought my 1949 Chevy in 1960 when I was 15. You could get a drivers license at 15 back then. It had a brand new paint job and looked and ran great. I paid $100 for it. I had it for 4 hours until a driver with no brakes in a 1950 Ford ran a stop sign and hit me in the driver's door and flipped it over and totaled it. I had 3 passengers and I was the only one with any injuries.
    I had a broken wrist and multiple cuts and scrapes from going through the windshield and sliding down the highway on my elbows and knees. His insurance company paid me $500 for my loss and injuries. I thought I was rich.

    1*That would put you right about my wife's age 63.
    In 1960 Three guys that I knew bought 3 new 1960 Chevy Impala Convertibles.
    A red one A blue one and A black one.They were all beauties .
    They all three made me drool.
    Little did I know that in 2 short years 1962 I would own the Black one.
    The 60 Chevy Convertible and the 50 Chevy were the cars I had when I met my wife in 1963.
    2*It was 16 back then here.
    I had my license a while before I was able to get a car.
    3*I paid $250 for mine.
    4*BUMMER

    lbrown- I see you are using bolts to carry your 12 volt current directly to the other since with the other clamps in the back for your fuel pump. I would have preferred to have that boxed in for saftey. when boxing it in, I would have the top part on paino hinge for easy lift and remove the clamps.
    also the lamp adapter plug, i hope that is temporary until you find the time to put in a real lamp in the shed with switch by the door. If you happened to break that bulb sticking out... all i can say is yikes

    Other then that - i am jealous of your setup , i am sure that was your intention .
