    I just bought one of these before we left for Lake Powell last week and it was awesome! Best $30 i've spent in a long time. I highly recommend it.

I tried taking a picture down in the barrel where I mounted the bulkhead fitting. This particular barrel had a flat spot down there with a raised ridge inside it that happened to allow me to drill my hole so that one of the flat spots on the bulkhead fitting nut butted up against it. That held the nut in place allowing me to tighten it from just the outside. Threaded the elbow into that and then claimed the gas hose to it. Super simple. If you're fill cap on the boat sits lower than the barrel, gravity feed is all you need. Notice I did make a small wooden platform for the barrel to sit on so the elbow fitting would clear the ground. I just screwed it to the plate on the metal dolly. The barrel is held on the dolly with a ratchet strap.
    If you need to add some pressure to pump uphill, then drill a small hole in one of the bung caps and pop an air valve in the hole. You can get the air valves in packs of 2 or 3 at Walmart for a couple of bucks. The gas will eventually take its toll on those, so plan to replace at least once a year or so when they get soft and leak air.

    Thanks for the details! What are you using to siphon from the truck jug to the portable jug?

    It works way too easy. And is cheap. When I bought mine here 4 years ago it was $4.50. I bought 2 and still have both that work.

    That turbo siphon looks easy and quick too. I have actually done that same thing many times by putting a small tube down by the larger hose and sealing the opening with my hand,then blowing to create the pressure for the siphon to start flowing. I guess someone finally got wise and made a little seal to do both. Probably making a fortune on it!

    That big barrel is a nice set up and cheap. Already have the flo fast stuff otherwise I'd maybe check into building.

    Fwiw here's my set up. Back the cart up to the dock. Put the containers on the dolly, wheel em down, fill.

    Oh yeah! That works great too. Those are some big jugs. As long as it's easy and quick, it's a good setup. I did what I have just because I had easy access to plenty of the 30 gal barrels. Might as well make use of them. I have seen someone use a 40 gallon yard sprayer as the storage tank too.

    And we typically go through 5 jugs of those every weekend.

    I'm envious of my brothers set up. He has a massive fuel caddy (200gal?) On trailer with electric pump and a 50 ft reel hose. Pulls it on the Polaris ranger up to the dock. Bam. Has the gas delivered via truck service. Bought it at my dad's farm auction.

    But he's a long ways from a gas station so it's kind of of necessity too.
