I inherited so to speak one of these.. holds 25 gallons.. gravity flow from bottom which is not helpful..

I fill tractor now with 5 gallon containers.. thought I might use the caddy somehow to fill..I fill a diesel tractor with a 55 gallon drum and hand pump..

Is it possible to adapt air hose chuck to top and push out fuel from bottom up to tractor by force of air in??

be pretty risky with plastic. would need a regulator and use only about 2 psi., even then ??.kind of a goofy idea as it is faster to fill by 5 gallon jug . even if it was mounted up high its still goofy.

Why not use a block and tackle to pull it up to drain into tractor, or put n loader bucket. Or could add a pump at any level.

I have one of those. I can't even get gas to run out the hose. I think it has a bad spot in it. No fun when you wrestle it up onto the hood of a tractor and no gas comes out.

However it is not a bad tank to carry in the truck laying down. Easy to fill and secure. I have thought of shortening the suction of a barrel pump to maybe 8 inches or so and adapting it to the filler cap inlet. It would be nice if it could be adapted so that it was fairly rigid. When the tank gets low it would be easy to tilt it so the gas comes to the end where the pump can reach it. As you say......just thoughts.

No! Just like rusted said, anything over 2 psi would be dangerous, and that would only push the gas up 4-5 ft. Those are made for putting gas in a boat from a tall dock, work good for that. Sell it to someone with a boat!

A friend of mine with a boat did the research, and here in NY state it does not appear to be legal to transport gasoline in containers larger than 5 gallons, and you are limited to 20 gallons total outside the vehicle's own fuel tank. Any more than that requires CDL, hazmat endorsement, and placarding. That tank is useless here.

do not pressurize diesel it is a combustible which means it combusts under pressure as apposed to a flammable such as gasoline I don't know the exact pressure needed but you are making a bomb !

If the pump in the nozzle is not pumping you have an air leak. I replaced the flimsy hose clamps with Ideal clamps and mine works great, but I only fill two or three gallons at a time. Enough to get whatever it is to the big tank with an electric pump. I put it in the bottom of my truck toolbox so I always have some extra gas with me. With all the super battery tools we have these days, I wonder if anyone makes a battery powered "nozzle"? Have to be all sealed up for safety of course but be real handy for a tank like this.

I do not believe the unit he posted a picture of has a pump, the nozzle is strictly an on/off valve.

I looked at one of those and like you said "gravity" only, kills the deal, however I thought of a 12 volt fuel pump in line. Lots of fuel pumps to chose from ,but cost was the reason I never tried it. joe

Actually you can pressurize diesel all you want and it does not become flammable. It is combustible at atmospheric pressure. It is pressurizing AND forcing it through a nozzle that atomizes it that makes it burn well, which is what happens in your tractor and your home oil burner.

I investigated several versions of fuel caddies before deciding that they were just about useless for fueling tractors.

OK for filling the lawn mower from a PU truck bed but that's about it.

Still using 5/6 gal cans.

Not a flame. Simply not true. If it did the injection pump would explode as it puts 10s of thousands of PSI into the fuel. it is just oil. Jim
