Which gas now?

I use the 20ltr (5 gal) plastic cans and siphon the fuel in with a conductive jiggler hose.

The 5 gallon Tuff Jugs are excellent, they can empty into the tank in about 45 seconds each.  I have four of them.  I rarely have needed to fill more than 20 gallons at a time, since I rarely fly my tanks down to less than half full.  Many of my flights are an hour or less, so 20 gallons often lasts me a week of flying or even more.  I usually just top off with one jug before each local flight, just enough to keep the fuel level at the top of both sight tubes.

I did the first 10 years with a 55gal tank on a trailer and a 15gpm 110 pump.  Holds 10 hours of fuel and quite convenient if you can keep in your hangar but need a step ladder.

I now have a 40gal transfer tank in the back of my pickup truck with a 12v 13gpm pump.  The new Silverado has a backup camera and built in ladder to get in the truck bed and fuel from the tail gate.

 

Both my trailor and my pickup have bonding and grounding cables, expensive be safe.

 

I did the 5gal jug thing with my first home build / Rotax.  I was young then I'm old now
