Glenn, closest I can find is a VP fuel dealer in Newark , Delaware. Maybe he can meet at Atco opening or someone coming from the Gators can pickup. S&K has 5 gallon pails but not sure what product. I am sure the number is no bargain.:eek:

I would look into the law before putting a 55gal drum in your trailer!!!

I spent some time with DOT over the summer and asked a lot of questions as we pull our race trailer with my semi truck.

If your rig is over 10,000 pounds fuel must be transported in sealed, secured 5 or 8 gal containers without hazmat. There's also a limit on how much. I can't remember exactly but it was well below 55gal.

I was told motor sports and horse transporters were gonna be high on DOT's radar this year.

Buy a 55 Gallon drum to keep in your shop and then carry as many 5 gallon jugs as you need for the racing trip you're going on. I usually carry four with me.

Can't beat Lebanon Valley for price we buy all our Dyno fuel there. Howard just about sells it for his cost.

Correct on container size, but the fuel weight limit is 440 pounds which is more than 55 gallons would weigh.
