Transporting boat fuel in basement - boaters please
I know little about boating. I drag race, and when we leave for a race, typically the generator starts on Friday night and runs until Sunday night. So I need enough fuel for that length.
But first, some background. This is a diesel pusher, with a propane generator. Now the best option would be a diesel generator, but that isn't in the budget. We do use a portable often during the day, but the little thing struggles with air conditioner, and won't run two when we need two. The propane will not make it through a weekend, and filling is a real issue for me. There is nowhere close to fill, and this would be a weekly occurrence. So I have converted my Onan to gasoline (fun project), and now need to come up with a decent fuel source.
My first thought was to mount a permanent tank either under if I could find a place, or in the basement. Filler necks get a little complicated, and no way I want to fill inside the basement. But portable marine tanks are easy to throw in the truck, and easy to hook up without spilling anything due to the quick connects. My only concern is exterior venting. I want to be able to vent them outside the basement instead of using the cap.
Anyone deal with this or have ideas?
