What's everybody using to fill their tanks on their gasser?
I imagine my old nitro jug/pump combination wont work anymore since gas containers should really be RED.
What's the best setup?

The Jersey Modeler system is the bees knees. It's expensive, but worth every penny. I have the 2.5 gallon version.

LOL

That Jersey Modeler looks like the ticket. Expensive, but what the heck! I've come THIS far. In for a penny, in for a pound!

How about this ?


.
Actually I used a Dubro crank pump that mounted directly to the handle of my 1 gallon fuel can.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Coleman cans with a $15 hand crank pump here. I use 5 gallon industrial metal containers for mixing and bulk storage. Plastic is not good for storage of gasoline, tightly capped metal container preserves the integrity much better.

GreyEagle,

That is without a doubt one of the smartest, cheapest, most effective systems I have seen! I have kids so we have several of those "soccer ball" pumps around.

No leaking, no dripping, no gears or pump membranes going bad. I am stealing one of these from the kids and changing my pump out for it.

Great idea!

Same here, Old Dubro container and a Hangar 9 Ultra hand fuel pump. Lasts long long time! Oh cheap too!

To bad you cant find those gas cans any more. Thanks Calf and the EPA

I was able to find a cap and yellow insert (like shown) but all the new gas cans have a smaller cap now so that done not work either.

What is a bee's knee?
From Urban Dictionary...

1. When bees flit from flower to flower the nectar sticks to their legs. The phrase "bee's knees" means sweet and good, because the knees of the bee are where all the sweet, good stuff is collected.

2. a term used by wey cool people who look hip in their jimmy jams. these people have a tendency of being meanys.

3. Slang from the 1920s. Possibly a corruption of the word business. Another possibility is that it is derived from the expression, "be all end all" a.k.a. "B's and E's" which when said would sound like, "Bees-an-ees". Simply defined as the best, latest, and greatest. (Synonymous with other 1920s slang: The cat's pajamas and the cat's meow. A more current version would be The sh#t.).

Like I said, the Jersey Modeler is the Bees Knees.
Does anyone beg to differ?
