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