Seen these but not sure how practical they are - a gallon of gas i about 6 lbs so this thing fully loaded is going to weigh close to 100lb

I was thinking about getting one of these to gas up my zero turn. Right now I have to struggle with 5 gallon containers which ins't very easy. It has dual tanks that hold around 6 gallons and I invariably ALWAYS spill some. Sometimes a little, sometimes a lot. I would think I could haul this thing in the back of my pickup to fill up. Then roll it down a ramp. Or maybe use the 5 gallon containers to refill it. Reviews say it is around 120 lbs. full.

I've also considered going with something like the battery powered Terapump [amazon.com] or Sierra Tools pump [amazon.com] but the reviews mention early death. Perhaps those folks just got lemons. For not much more than the Terapump, this seems like a better deal as it stores a large amount of fuel as well. Anyone have any experience with these sorts of devices?

Been wanting one of these for years, but $100 was too much. However at $80 w/FS it's worth it.

For what it's worth, this tank weighs about 85 pounds when it's full. Aside from the pain of getting it to and from a gas station, the wheels bind up at full weight making it difficult to wheel around. It's ravity fed, so the tank needs to sit higher than what you're filling in order to get any flow. The flow rate is painfully slow (draining all 14 gallons out of this would take forever), and with no pump lock on the handle, you're left squeezing the pump until you've filled whatever it is you're trying to fill. I bought one last year, and filed it with water to rinse it out and test it. I sent it back before ever putting gas in it. And it was quicker to pick it up and dump the water out. I'm not thumbs downing the deal, $79.99 is the lowest I've seen on it, I'm simply sharing my experience with the product.

Best,
Spencer

You could use a funnel, you know. Confused

Had one for a few years. Idea is great. Hose and nozzle suck. Replaced hose after awhile and nozzle seamed to leak on me about every time. Bought a few eagle 3 gallons instead. Very happy with them over this.

A funnel is a bit hard to use with the newer gas cans that require downward pressure to open the nozzle. I've actually replaced my hoses with old school nozzles that no longer have locks (shh...) but they still can flop out of the opening when I'm trying to manhandle a full 5 gallon container. There's quite a bit more clearance than your car fuel opening.

I really tried to use the newer gas can nozzles. It took 20 minutes to empty a 5 gallon can.
Now I just unscrew the nozzle to open the can and use a funnel and pour away. Empty in 2 minutes.

Buy 3 no spill 5 gallons instead and thank me later. I bought one of these. JUNK. pump handle will break and leak all over from the inside instead of pumping, hose dry rots fast and you'll have to replace it or let it leak all over, and you can't fully drain the thing, so you always have old gas.
