I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!
What about a small boat fuel tank? They're plastic, hold up to vibration, can be strapped to the front rack. I don't know about prices, I didn't check.

Sometimes it's just easier to spend 2 minutes making something "legal" than arguing with morons. Especially in New Germany where its technically illegal to even fill your own cans... If I lived anywhere else I wouldn't have bothered painting it red. In fact I would have preferred to paint it yellow and write something like "floor cleaner" on the side so people dont think it's gasoline and try to steal it when the cans are in the back of my truck.
New Germany, eh? LOL

Yeah, I forgot about their dumb assed can’t pump your own fuel rule. Must be a Union/Mob thing.

They think a "trained professional" at the pump is less likely to spill.

In Oregon they always say it's for employment reasons, protecting jobs and such... I don't mind too much but some of the teenagers get all high and mighty... you can still fill your own boats, motorcycles and anything diesel yourself...

"The actual law that makes it illegal to pump your own gas in NJ is called the Retail Gasoline Dispensing Safety Act and Regulations and it became law in 1949. The act says "Because of the fire hazards directly associated with dispensing fuel, it is in the public interest that gasoline station operators have the control needed over that activity to ensure compliance with appropriate safety procedures, including turning off vehicle engines and refraining from smoking while fuel is dispensed."

In summary... Nanny state BS.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Breathe, man. Breathe.

The New Germany area in the Mtns of far western Maryland is deeply offended by your associating them with the People's Republic of New Jersey . :)
