Will they fill overhead tanks there? No one will here anymore.
Put your gas under a roof or underground.
I have several tanks for transport loads of Diesle and a thousand gallon gas tank.
"Here" the fuel suppliers will provide tanks and pumps but I do my own so I can buy where I want.
Be sure and use Gasoline rated equipment. Be sure your hose has a static wire. Especially in your dry environment.
Oh, use 10 micron filters with water shutdown too.
At least as the last filter. Can go bigger in the first stage.
Our tractors use 2 micron filters.

I have a 300 gallon above ground for gas at my house and I have never had any issues. I ran a vent pipe up 12 feet above the tank. It sure is nice having fuel and not having to run to the gas station all the time.

How many gallons are you buying a year and venting to atmosphere.
The cost per gallon can climb really fast along with gum formations in open vented tanks.

I use a tank up about every 3 months.

Gravity flow is just to darn slow for me.

Are you wanting it to buy tax free gasoline for your welders?



We had two barrels in vapor stage go boom at Texas City it registered on the Richter scale. That is 104 gallons.


I still remember hearing the boom from the Ammonium Nitrate ship explosion there in '46 that nearly leveled the town. I was living in Pasadena....heard the boom on a Saturday and on Sunday's news paper, I remember crawling up in bed with daddy where he was reading the Houston Post front page article.
