Veggin has you covered, but as an alt idea...
I do 3 or 4 long hauls a year, 200+ gal runs. I have a 100 gal regular veg tank and for the long hauls I went to a semi truck junkyard and picked up a 90 gallon D-shaped aluminum tank. Came with the sender and two pickups for $2/gal. They are harder to find than the circular saddle tanks, but I didn't want to screw with straps and keeping it from rolling around. All rectangular ones will be steel (according to the wrecker). Also, since its aluminum, I can pick it up and move it in and out the truck by myself. Goes in the truck before the trip and comes out after the trip. Pump from long haul tank to the reg veg tank at the end of the day of driving.
Only drawback is the damn thing sits in my way when I'm not using it.
