Canada Trip

Will be driving from Alaska through Canada in route Nevada to new job.
Have heard that Canada has restrictions on carrying fuel with you, plan on buying 95 gallon tank with tool box. Is this true on drums or tanks..
For folks who have travelled into Canada or those who live there, was wondering if these rumors are true, is there a web site I can check this out on.
Thanks in advance for any info.
Keith

If there is a DOT stamp of approval on the tank, you should be ok. Depending on the border officer, they may want to see DOT/TC which is DOT and Transport Canada. It could be entirely based on the officer on duty at the time, and your attitude (not insinuating that you have a bad attitude, but being positive and pleasant has the best results). You should be ok transporting diesel, but in Canada it is illegal to transport more than 30 liters of gasoline in one container in a light vehicle. Worst case scenario I could see is the border officers asking that you pay a road tax on the fuel you're carrying... I hope you can make it through on your US fuel, it'll save you a pile of money!!!!!

If you are using an approved fuel tank there are no issues in Canada. By approved means meeting US and Cdn standards which are virtually identical in regards to bed mounted fuel tanks or slip tanks. As long as approved in the USA you should have no problem.

If you drive across the border with drums of diesel fuel in your box you are just asking for questions and likely some interesting problems.

Been looking to install a slip tank, myself, haven't decided which one to buy yet, but I have noticed some manufacture's tanks are approved for US but not CA.

May hold off a bit now, as prices have come down on the fuel up north.
I bought a few tanks near Calgary and Edmonton over the last week, prices aren't too bad. Paid 1.05/L and 1.15/L not much more than the states.

thanks for the info, will be sure to look for the DOT stamp before purchase.
hoping to make it through or most of way with out paying for the fuel, If I can keep my foot out of it and drive it like I should and not how it likes to run should do ok, Cruise control will be my friend.

Was also wondering on opinions on if I do have to get fuel sugestions on which stations to use and or stay away from. Since owning the truck I have only got fuel at 3 or 4 different places, always try and use the same places even on road trips.
Nervous about getting bad fuel.
Thx

Our fuel is generally better!! We don't get water in fuel!! Lol. Buy from large bust dealers in major centers. I prefer Flying J, Shell, PetroCanada when on the road. I use Co-op at home because we have a refinery close by and high volume. Esso is fine as well (Exxon).

If you buy in larger communities you will be fine. As I said, our diesel is better anyway and no need to worry about B20 if you stick to those dealers.

Husky is fine for diesel but they put too much ethanol in their gas. Same with Mohawk. I generally avoid them for that reason.

I always fill up at Shell. I have never seen a drop of water come out of my DFCM in 100,000 km.

I got me a in bed L shaped tank today, It is set up with a valve to gravety feed into main tank, my question is do they make adapters to put in the fill hose or do I need to get a peice made, And I'm not 100% sure that I want to drill a hole in the bed.
I do like the idea of not having to look at the pump while tank is in the truck, would look much better with out it. I already have the pump so that it not a big deal.

I PAD was giving me fits when I tried searching this earlier, But I did find that RDS makes a kit that is what I'm looking for, The only thing that concerns me is can you fill the main tank normally with nozzle because of check valve, seems like it would still work, may just fill at a slower rate or want to shut the nozzle off. Did not see that in the right up

Thx for any info or ideas.

Was also wondering if anyone knows if I have to have tank permanently mounted (bolted down) or can a cargo strap work, not to the point yet that I want to drill holes in my bed if I don't have to.
thx

I would think for it to be DOT approved it would have to be installed per the manufactuer's instructions, with that said, I would suggest bolting it down.

I use a couple short pieces of chain and turn buckles to tie mine down to the cargo hooks in the corners. I went into Canada a few years ago and they were fine. But coming back into the US they were asking me all sorts of questions and crawling under the truck with flash lights. I had the same grief going into a casino parking garage in Vegas also.
