When you guys run with fuel containers on deck (like for moose hunting or long runs into the sound) how do you transfer your fuel from the larger containers to the boats fuel tank? I am talking about 30 gallon containers which are really to heavy to hold and pour the gas slowly into a funnel.
I know one person who runs a pickup tube into a fuel drum and runs this to his outboard. But this would require modifying the fuel drum with an air valve of sorts to vent the barrel.
I was thinking of buying a electric fuel pump designed for any auto and making sure the connections were spark proofed and using this to transfer the gas from the barrels to the fuel tank.
Any and all thoughts are appreciated along these lines.
