Using "toy" fuel cell for pressure washer water

I am not using my TH 30 gallon fuel tank for fuel. I likely won't ever use it as I have both 2 stroke and 4 stroke toys. It's just easier to pre-mix in jugs.
I am wondering if anyone has converted it to a water tank for use with a pressure washer? Not sure what I would need, probably just a pump unless I use a self priming pressure washer?

Most people use it to fill the generator tank.

You would definitely want to make sure whatever pump you buy can put out enough pressure to keep up with the pressure washer. I would definitely stick with an electric, I'd be worried about burning up a gas by either under pressuring it, or running out of water.

I use my pressure washer for business and have had occasion to need water in places that didn't have access to water, what I did was get a 55 gallon drum, put a regular hose fitting on the bottom and would fill it up with water and drive to the location to clean such as housing development entrances and such that wanted pressure washing. As long as the tank was above the level of the washer the gravity feed from the tank was enough to supply water to the washer. My washer is a gas, 2.5 GPM@2600 psi and I never had issues with it.

Won't be good for resale. Most TH folks want the fuel for the genset and toys. The ATV friendly parks I use don't allow washing.
