The fuel tanks are great we use them on are diesel trailer packages. The tank are light weight and very strong are customers love them there are just wright for the amount of fuel there hold. I would recommend them to anybody.if you need a good strong light weight tank it is the way to go.The price is great for all you get with the tank.

We have used this a few times. It really saves us when we are low on fuel and we have some in the tank. It didn't take as long as they said it would to get here. We have been pleased.

Nice Tank

from Westchester County, NY
Tank is nice and lightweight and even looks good. Easy to move around and stow away. Tank works beautifully around town/highway. Only problem I encounter is off-road. When bouncing around (climbing mountain), some fuel spills out of the vent. Maybe vent should be a stack or something elevated to help. Otherwise I highly recommend the tank.
