We have been talking about the doing the same with a empty roundup shuttle but didn't know if it would hold up to diesel fuel, but I guess I know the answer now.

We’ve used the same 2 totes for 2 years and so far they look fine. A bit of a yellow stain on the inside is all so far. If it gets weak after a few years I’ll just wash out another one. There’s about 50 of them lying around our house and more every year.

Be very careful using plastic containers to haul fuel. Plastic can cause static electricity. (Boom good by joe) If DOT stops you look out!!

You mean like the billion plastic jerry cans out there? I think the presence of liquid pretty much eliminates the possibility of static buildup.
For that matter the fuel tanks on our combines are plastic!

The problem with plastic is breaking and leaking in the event if a collision... I think dot approved tanks for highway transport need to be 1/8" for tidy tanks and such.
It must be a volume thing because thinking about it.... cars and trucks have plastic fuel tanks, gas/diesel....

Yes DOT would loose their S^H^I^T if they saw totes full of diesel.... (just don't put a placard id'ing it!!)

Keep calm and combine on....

Plastic and liquid makes static. Used to have a video at work of a small, like a couple ounces, of hexane in a 5 gal pail swirl it around and boom.

All tanks must be DOT approved to haul fuel on public roadways in Canada. I know there are some non approved tanks out there being used and the DOT are losing their $hit over it.
I’m not telling anyone what to do, but check your provincial laws out before something goes wrong. Every year it seems we get regulated more on what we can and can’t do for transportation of all cargo.

I had mentioned [I think] 1/8" thick steel is needed to for DOT approval in alberta. Reason is I was chatting with a hutterite welder, that makes tidy tanks, who said this.

Leads me to wonder what the regulations are in alberta with regards to tidy tank construction and capacity.
