The wife is back from spring break with the camera.:)
I would like to show you the Grand kid but here are pictures of the fuel skid I just finished, all that is left is $150.00 to fill it up. Also planning to build a stand for it in the tractor shed for it to reside on when we are not using it in the field. :)
During the summer when we are haying I got tired of toting 5 gal. cans and jerry cans so I was going to put a extra fuel tank behind the tool box in the truck bed. My wife does not like the smell of diesel so she said NO!!!! So we came to a compromise (SHE and me) I can carry this during the season but then it comes out and the truck bed gets a good bathing!

Sorry! :eek: I am not much of a picture taker, so the process of building it is not recorded but these are of when I assembled it for the last time.:D

great build. I would suggest one little change. either add a can to catch the drips of fuel from nozzle or set it upright into a can like box like the fuel stations does.

No issues!:laughing:

We have a lot of logger friends and their work trucks have diesel tanks, oil cans, saws, and lubes for the skidders, and towers, plus all the wood chips and sawdust and road dirt in the back and honestly the trucks do smell like an old grease sump! :eek:

She just does not want our truck to be like that! I much rather be at home with my wife than sleeping on some loggers couch! :thumbsup:So we have a fuel skid!:D

When it will be in the tractor shed it will be like you see it but I have a rubber 'cork' that I'll stick in the neck of the nozzle when it is in the truck, but a can is a good ideal all so.

Thanks for the comments. :thumbsup:

Looks like a semi saddle tank? What did you end up using for the transfer pump & associated fittings?

The tank came off a reffer trailer, 40 gal. The pump is a 12 volt for diesel that I bought from Harbor freight and a standard diesel filter/seperator. Most of the conections are jic.
