That was my thoughts as well. My fuel trailer will be outside under the 30'X40' carport with the trailers and such. Any spill would be on the ground, less grass to mow.When storing anything that could burn down my shop, i decided on not building my own, and didnt want one that rusts. This seamed like a great deal. When i got mine it was around $650.
Plastic crap cans cost $25-$35 and make a mess everywhere. I haven't had any last more than 5-6 years and I'm easy on them; I wanted cans that can take a beating in the back of my truck and last forever without making a mess when I use them. Older jerry cans I've had before with the threaded spouts were a perennial mess to use.$85 a piece !! You gotta be kidding. Fancy surplus jerry cans.
I was about to purchase a drum containment pallet before getting the idea to look for a truck tank.The regs for above ground storage here, as were above an aquifer, require a catch basin. Strict regs. No one will fill it without certification. WAY WAY more expensive than transfer tank.
i stopped installing diesel generators due to strict DEQ requirements for fuel containment. The system doubled the cost of the generator.
