Fuel despensing tank?

I am looking for a different way of being efficient with gasoline.
Chainsaws & ATV's are about the only things we have burning gasoline, everything else burns Diesel fuel!

The ATV's normally get a little low on the gauge, and the tank will hold a 2 gallon can of fuel. Then commonly refill the can with fuel out of a 5 gallon can. I would Like to buy or make a tank which would hold 10-15 gallons of Gas, with a small ~1/4 inch valve at the bottom which could be opened to refill the smaller tank. This would make dealing with the limited amount of gasoline simpler. Planning to be able to refill the tank with 5 gallon gas jugs.
Would Need about a foot to 18 inches under the tank to fit the 2 gal jug under.

Any Help or recommendations GREATLY Appreciated!!

1- anhueser-Busch keg - 1/2 barrell equals 15 gallons 3 of them will make a heck of a party. Should be some of those in Missouri.

Stainless fittings for a top 1 inch or bigger and 1/4 or 1/2 for bottom from McMaster-Carr

Find someone local to TIG weld them in I have welded up kegs for a guy making home brew he posted it on craigslist. If you were in MI. I'd do it.

Make some legs and your done.

Stainless fuel tank you could even pick up a vented cap from farm store for a transfer tank.

Can't find One??

I was wondering if you could suggest a place to locate one?

I have been trying to find one then I could have fittings welded into the keg for filling with fuel & also for dispensing into smaller containers.

Thanks,
Diesel

I have a horizontal six barrel rack in the shop. Two for oils, one for 50/50 coolant, one for off road diesel, one for gasoline, and one for distilled water, (plastic barrel). I welded bungs into the sides of the steel barrels from McMaster: http://www.mcmaster.com/#1698t14/=qhvkww and these face up when the barrels are horizontal in the racks. A spigot mounts into the bung on the top, (front when horizontal) and there is enough room to fill a five gallon can from any of them. With the exception of the water, all the fuels and oils are bulk filled off the fuel truck when I need.

The question I seek an answer for is simply; why, or why not?

eBay
Call your local ab, miller, coors distributor they will sell banged up ones
Party store that sells keg beer
Scrap yard if they don't have them they will tell you where to find them
9 am Sunday morning near any college frat house

Or buy a full keg and turn it into a weekend project.


Goodluck.
