Mobile Fuel Depot

Had a few extra minutes today and decided to quit sliding my drum around.

I threw together this little cart with my boys this afternoon.

I've got a HF air pump, Goldenrod 80 mesh strainer, and 23' of 3/4 hose with an 18" long fill spout.

I just spool out my air hose and pump away.

I had something similar but on a dolly as I dont have the privilege of pulling my truck anywhere near my grease shed. When I come back from Hawaii Im going to build a small grease only shed right next to my 18 foot gate that leads to my backyard.

I only have a pedestrian gate into my back yard, I'd like to rebuild it into a "real" gate and get my truck back there for fuel ups. That way I could keep ALL my WVO Bits and Pcs out of my shop.

Woodworking and fuel filtering don't go to well together.

But as a bonus to how I have it now..... I can fuel my truck any where within 150' of my garage door.

I have a 100 foot drag (dragging dolly through sand) to fill up my truck. I got about 40 feet of sidewalk laid by myself before I found out I was being stationed in Hawaii and then I figured Id finish the sidewalk when I return in 36 months.

I know it might be a moot point now, sine the Hawaii thing, but why not just use 100' of hose? I know I'd be happier spending coin on 1" hose than dragging a drum all the time.

funny you ask but 3/4" hose is 1$ a foot and I would need about 150 feet of it and that really is just too much hose to be messing with for me . The 100 foot drag gets me to solid surface and then its another 50 or so feet depending on who parks where in my driveways. Thats why I started doing my own sidewalk.
