Additional Fueling for Bike

http://www2.northerntool.com/fuel-tr...item-19567.htm


Ok, help me out. I'm going to purchase one of these to help out in future times like this with limited fuel.

Question is for the more techinical, how do i really use a 12volt fuel pump OR something I can adapt easily in the car to pump gas from this ? I want to fuel up my wifes car, and have additional fuel in this tank for my ninja, we might end up getting 2 total, so that 30 gallons reserve will set us straight for close to the month. But I don't know how to add a pump feature as some online posted about adding.... help please? Also if you know a better alternative, let me know! The only issue with this tank I can see is gravity feed, so if in the VW GTI trunk, then it won't really fill up the VW or my bike, since it would be lower.

I'd like one tank to fill, without spending a fortune. That's why I was trying to avoid the 6 gallon cans. Also, if I filled up a single 15 gallon, or maybe bought 2, then less likely the car will smell like gas when its sealed well... however I need to know then what kind of hand crank I could use. This is for mainly situations for the bike and for my wife's car if we run into another potential hurricane, we could potentially have gas for the month covered in case of emergency. Its a long term investment anyway, but I would like an idea. I'd like to have the potential for 30-36 gallons, stored in as few containers as possible, and easily pump from those containers to the car or the bike, stowed for those situations in back of car.... so hand pump (not a billion squeezes either!) sounds great... Ideas without spending a fortune?

lol . That's pretty helpful. Considering the car has a 9 volt plug in the back I would like to use that as a last resort, i'm more personally interested in an efficent hand crank or something along those lines. However, if I could use something to pump it out that was cheap and used 9 volt then I would definitely like a link to what you are talking about. I'm not the "handyman" around here so specifics would help. Thanks all Be safe
