The Right Tool For The Job
An extremely useful tool to transport diesel fuel from one site to another. Transfer Tanks are usually constructed of aluminum or steel. Most tanks come with a standard 2” npt bung to mount a transfer pump such as a GPI HP90 hand pump or a GPI M150S 12-volt electric pump. Most pump manufacturers offer the standard 2” npt connection. A diesel fill port with cap is usually included with most brands of transfer tanks as well. Preferably, it should not have the “automotive style” plastic cap on the tank, those are designed for auxiliary fuel tank systems. The cap needs to be a vent and prevent. When the transfer pump is in use the proper fill cap allows enough air to enter the tank at a volume equal to the amount of fuel being pumped from the transfer tank. This prevents the sidewalls of the tank from sucking in which strains the pump and the tank. The automotive style fuel caps are usually insufficient at doing this. Transfer Tanks are useful when you need to transport diesel fuel from one place to another. Transfer Tanks can be pumped from while still on your vehicle on private property. Transfer Tanks come in a range of sizes usually from 30-100 gallons. Transfer Tanks can be used for diesel fuel. Limitations: Transfer Tanks cannot be used in commerce (used to make money or in business) in most circumstances. Transfer Tanks cannot be used for flammables such as gasoline. Transfer Tanks cannot be pumped from while the tank is mounted on your vehicle unless you are on private property. Transfer Tanks cannot be connected to your factory fuel system.
A useful tool to fuel equipment with small engines that do not require a lot of gas or diesel. The most popular Gas Can or “Jug” is constructed of polyethylene (plastic). Most Gas Cans come with a pour spout with cap and a vent that allows the fuel to be poured from the Gas Can without restriction that would otherwise cause chugging and slow fueling. Gas Cans can be used on private property or in commerce in most circumstances. Gas cans can be used for Diesel or Gasoline. Limitations: The amount of gas or diesel the Gas Can holds is limited, usually 1-5 gallons.
