    I'm looking to buy a diamond plate fuel transfer tank w/ toolbox to fit a full size p/u. I don't feel like spending 1200.00.(with the pump) If anyone knows of anyone selling one, let me know. Thanks

    Tank

    Watch ebay, they usually pop up on there from time to time, hardest part is finding them, keywords don't help in the search...

    I usually use "fill rite" and others along those lines to find them.

    Good Luck

    One suggestion I have is avoid the L shaped tanks. I have one and am not happy with it. When fuel is low and truck on slant you cant get to fuel. In next few months I plan on selling mine and buying a regular tank.

    Swap?

    I have an L shaped tank with a silver diamond plate tool box that fits on top of it and sits level with the top of the tank.

    I want to keep my sander on with the tank when required so I'm looking for a vertical tank, (no L shape) to swap if anyone out there has one.
    Otherwise I will always sell outright.

    Has a red fill rite with blue hose and nozzle. I think the blue hose is the low temp hose that stays flex all the time.
    New particulate filter a few months ago. Pump is strong and never had a problem with pump lifting fuel.

    I'm located on Long Island in New York. I'd much prefer a swap, as I need a tank for the truck and for machines so... Anyone? Tank is a weatherguard I think... It's got two eyelets on top for lifting out, but we've always moved it manually (when empty of course)
