Plastic Fuel tank - with wheels?

Anyone know of any plastic fuel tanks that have wheels fiited so they can be wheeled/dragged along by a handle when full ? Like some of the caravan water tanks.
thanks

yeah thanks Nos...I have one of those, picked it up from Machine Mart, just trying to put less clutter in the boat. I had the Round Ireland trip in mind, and forsee a situation where i may need to send fuel tanks away with someone to get filled and brought back to the boat, some wheels may make it easier, especially if built in to the tank. I would have to stow these empty "transfer" tanks on board during the legs, so was hoping to hit a balance of not too big but not too little capacity. I have a 200 litre under deck tank, so two 50 litre portables would probably work. I also have two - 30 litre bag tanks, but am thinking to not bring them. Think it would be easy to damage these if I handed them off to someone to get filled at a gas station , and transported along with a bunch of other plastic tanks. Also cumbersome to move around when full, as they are the sausage variety and not the wedge type.

I see what you mean-a full 50 litre tank is a bit unwieldy and bloody heavy.

Is it worth a phonecall to Tek Tanks?

They're known as a "gas caddy", but I wouldn't think they'd be legal in the UK.

Looks like the need for wheeled tanks on Round ireland is over ... HMS just emailed.

Flotilla will be burning 1000 litres an hour at sea. Our requirements have grown hugely as more teams have come onboard so running to and fro from garages with cans is not really viable or safe in my view. A proper solution needs to be secured. Almost have a plan in hand ready to present now, so very shortly hope to put all teams in the picture ref the fuel. Best wishes, HMS. PBR
