    Default Fuel Caddy/Motocross 5gal Jugs??

    For anyone who keeps their boat at the lake, what do you like to use to fill up as quickly as possible? The regular 5 gal containers are so slow!!! There are some fuel caddies out there but are pricey. Anyone tried tried multiple motocross 5gal jugs with "quick fill" hose on them?

    Anyone know if they work better than standard 5 gallon containers?

    KurtL - I looked at a caddy, but too expensive. Also, when loaded with fuel it would seem to be awkward and heavy to slug from the car down to the pier. So, we use the inexpensive 5 gallon containers. Come to think of it, I don't think I've seen anyone on our pier use a caddy. - Deerfield

    I just use a bunch of 2-3 gallon cans, we usually bring 4 or 5 every couple of days so it never gets below a half tank, and occasionally I'll buy on the water (usually on the weekends when we've been out all day and don't feel like getting off the water; $5.50 a gallon hurts though!)

    I tried a 5 gallon and it was too big to manuver, I ended up with gas in my face, it was terrible. I don't notice the amount of time it takes - if I'm on the boat I'm smiling.

    A couple years ago in Sandpoint a guy next to me had a siphon that attached to the top of the 5gal jugs and had a few feet of hose. He left the jug on the dock and filled with the hose. No spills & easy to use. I have been watching at retailers but have not seen one since.

    The guy I bought my outback from used a 5 gal jug and siphon.. there is a inexpensive siphon hose at auto zone/ wal mart that easily primes. he would put the gas on the sundeck and transfer into the tank.
    I think the gas cans for atv/mc;s would work better than the normal 5 Gal gas cans..

    I use 6 gallon cans but I use a fuel pump to transfer the gas as I've never liked holding the cans up.
