Plastic transfer tanks

Postby VegMeister » Fri Jul 18, 2008 3:54 pm

Hey all, I'm a big fan of using transfer tanks for my veg oil tank. I have an aluminum one myself.

I'm thinking that a plastic one would have many advantages, price being one of them. Anyone know where I can buy a plastic transfer tank from?

not cheap but what about the trekkers from Golden Fuel Systems?

Then there is http://www.plastic-mart.com/index.htm

They seem to have a bunch of cool stuff too.

Portable RV sewer tanks come to mind.

Just to clarify what I mean by "transfer tank" is like a transfer tank you'd buy at tractor supply or northern tool: it goes in the bed of your pickup truck, in front of the wheelwells.

I want to use it as the veg oil fuel tank on my dad's cummins, and I think that 60 gallons would be nice for longer trips.

So you want an in the bed farmers fuel tank with an external fuel pump and also a feed line into the trucks fuel system.

Could be baught or made. Some have used fuel tanks in metal boxes, fuel tanks mounted inside an old truck tool box... and of course the ready made units.
