I've got this auxiliary fuel tank that will fit across the bed of my truck that is about 12" thick. It's the kind that off highway vehicle owners use. I want to fit a 12 volt pump on it maybe also a gallon meter. Any ideas wher to get?
Are you wanting to convert it to a transfer flow style tank, or just not wanting a bulky hand pump sticking up?

What is a transfer flow style tank? I was thinking of the bulky pump above because that is all I have seen. There is no pump on it at present. It is just a big box with 2 big ol' female threaded fittings on what used to be the top. I would guess about inch and a half NPT threads. I was guessing that one is for fillin' er up and the other for pumpin'er out. It holds something like 100 + gallons. I got it for free and I had 3 thoughts. 1) more capacity-for long trips-not a big issue. 2)help my friend with his bio-Diesel project-give out free samples on the road. 3) paint it nice and cover up the 2 kinks in the front of the bed.;-)
I am assuming if I plumb it as a transfer style tank I would need to rig some plumbing down to the belly tank. Is this correct. Could I still dispense fuel?
