Trolley for fuel tanks - advice?

Hello Folks

Any recommendations please for a trolley for moving 25/30 litre plastic outboard fuel tanks? (ideally obtained by mail order)

Looking for something that folds down so can be readily carried in the car or on the RIB if need be.

Not been an issue before as always brought RIB back onto trailer after use, but having the luxury of using a pontoon at Easter, so need a way to refuel without taking the boat out... and so I don't look a wimp by struggling with carrying fuel tanks by the handles for a distance :o)

Many thanks

Steve

fyi - last time I looked at those Duramax flo n go tanks they were super expensive in the UK. Great idea though they are. They sometimes come up on Ebay but new they are expensive.

The only place I could find one was Roche marine, its been a lifesaver when cruising places with no waterside petrol (i.e. Scotland ! ).

Make sure you are sitting down before you click on the link

DuraMAX - Roche Marine

Thought it might have been more, 53 Litre's is a decent amount of fuel not to have to lift.
