Anyone ever try putting a gas station type setup in their trailer? Obviously not that big, but maybe something like a 20 gallon can with a submersible electric motor and a nozzle for easy re-fueling.

i've seen lots of farmers and heavy equipment type people with external gas tanks in pickups with manual crank type pumps. you may just be asking for trouble?

Check the boating supply stores. Overton's has this: item 31249


The cost is $269. Go to Overtons.com and search for 31249

and this: item 36866 $99



They also sell the pumps separately

why? (Those 12v pumps would empty a 20 gallon tank in ~500ms)

That depends on how big of a pump you get. I've use 110V pumps that would empty a 200,000 gallon pool in 3 days. I've also use 110V pumps that would take 2 weeks. Volts have nothing to do with it, it's the amperage of the motor.

A couple of guys that I know that race (the George brothers) have a similar setup with a 15-20 (?) gallon tank mounted on a cart with an electric pump that they hook up to a battery. Seems to work really well for them. Sorry I don't have more details...
