    Now there's a visual I could have done without!

    I removed the little safety lever on my fuel spouts too. Pushing on that thing, really hurts when the fingers are cold.

    Here's my solution, after several unsatisfactory methods for pouring a 5 gallon jug.


    It's a 15 gallon barrel, so its not too heavy to rassle out of the trailer after going to fill it. I have a second barrel like it. They originally held carwash detergent.

    And a HF $30 pump, the one that can pump or suck depending on which way the handle is turned. That's so I can steal fuel from one tractor for the other if I ever have to - or empty the tractor's tank for some reason.

    The delivery end of the hose is an easy fit into the second bung. I park it in there to keep it clean. And the fitting near the end of the hose is simply ballast so the hose doesn't jump out of the tractor while fueling.

    California, That is a great Idea. I have one 5 gallon and two 6 gallon yellow plastic cans. I could fill the three at the gas station and pump into the holding tank you show. May never have to lift a full can again plus, a reserve at home. I know that some of these barrels come with warnings not to use petroleum in them, but looks like yours is holding up nicely. I have a barrel and think I will test it with a small amount of diesel for a week or so to be sure. When the government starts to send out home and farm safety inspectors I expect they will not allow it though. Has Pelosi turned the water back on out there yet?

    Watched John stossel on Fox News the other night and the company that made the good cans went out of business because of law suits from dummies pouring gas on open flames. Put around 170 people out of work and some had worked there for over 30 years.

    Myself, I got a couple of the hi-flows so I didn't have to stand around for 5 mins with it at chest level to pour 5gals into my bota.
    Thanks for the link. I ordered one regular for gas, and one hi-flow for diesel.

    That was the direction I was going to go, even got a HF hand pump. But before I got my hands on a 15 gallon can the local natural gas company decided to expand their service area. All of a sudden there was lots of free diesel sitting in people's basements so I bought an electric pump and now use a 55 gallon drum. I have it filled when the dealer is up delivering heating oil.

    Saw one of these for the first at the local farm supply the other day. It might be the answer for some of you.
