1 Fueling Strategy and Equipment on Tue Jul 13, 2010 5:06 pm

I am thinking at this point that two 55 gallon drums in the bed of a truck with one of these: http://sas-tools.amazonwebstore.com/Rotary-Hand-Barrel-Pump/M/B003AUTYWW.htm?traffic_src=froogle&utm_medium=organic&utm_source=froogle and at least five, 5 gallon jugs will work out nicely.

I believe that I know a place where we can get used 55 gallon steel drums cheaply.

I will check out the barrel place tomorrow before I head over to work on the Jag.

55 gallon metal barrels are $20 each, but I am sure that we can haggle if we get more. He also has several 15 gallon barrels for sale as well. I got his business card so we can call him and ask questions if necessary.
