    I found a company that makes nice heavy duty poly storage tanks at great prices and thought I would pass on the info. The company is Rotonics Mfg. They have 8 locations around the country. Contact Sue at the location in Bensonville, IL at (630) 773-9510 let her know that John from Metro sent you and she will give you the distributor price instead of retail. The tanks they sell are heavy duty and rated at 16.5 pounds per gallon unlike typical water tanks that are 8 lbs pg. They carry all sizes, but common ones are 1650 gal at under $600 and 3000 gal for under $1200. They ship or you can pick up. Below are 3 1650 tanks I bought from them (250 lbs each) so they are easy to move around.

    Very handy. Be cool if you could raise them up and put a gravity feed system to your truck tanks.

    Gravity is too slow to fill.

    Gravity is fine as long as you have a big enough hose. I would guess that you can get about 100 gpm gravity flow out of a two inch hose.
