Comments about Fuel Chief Portable Fuel Tank 25-gallon:

I bought this to keep a steady supply of non-ethanol fuel around the house to run our boat and numerous other small motors (ATVs, Mowers, Trimmers, Blowers, Etc. I have tried other "portable" fuel tanks that were horrible.

This fuel tank is certainly a commercial-grade piece of equipment and I don't expect it to crack, bend, break or peel anytime soon (I've had it about a year).

I was disappointed to see a lot of plastic chips and debris in the bottom of the tank when it was delivered. It's NOT easy to remove but highly recommended that you do.

The wheels work well and as designed. However the unit is still very heavy and not easy to move on any kind of uneven terrain so be aware of that. Not bad, just a reality.

A couple of notes for prospective buyers:
1) When full, this is very heavy. Getting it out of the bed of a pickup after filling it is likely a 2 person job for most folks. But it is possible to do with one but it's not for the weak or infirm.
2) The fuel delivery "system" that is shipped with it is mostly worthless. It relies on gravity to fill the tanks and I suspect for most people (like me) getting the fuel tank above or even with the machine is unlikely (see point #1 above)
3) Get the rotary fuel pump accessory. It will make fueling up things a breeze compared to what comes with the unit. Honestly, I don't know why the rotary pump isn't just part of the kit since the stock line is worthless for most people's usage.
4) When threading caps, tube, covers, stoppers, etc. onto anything on the unit be very careful not to cross-thread. The build quality on the openings and bung is suspect. ESP when installing/removing the rotary pump.
5) Buy a bung wrench to help with the cap that allows you to take the plastic stopper on/off when using the rotary pump.
6) When taking to a station to refill, you really need to remove the rotary pump and replace the stopper that came with the unit. That allows you to lay the unit on its side which is much more stable, safe, etc. That seemed like it was going to be a pain, but it's not that bad, especially if you have #5 above.
