Re: Outboard Engines Limit

It's very difficult to pour gasoline from a 5 gal jug into an outboard motor or into a 3 gal. gas tank. When the boat is dead in the water, it rolls sharply with the waves, and you spill a lot of fuel over the cockpit floor and sometimes yourself. My remedy was to buy 3 portable fuel tanks, and fit each of them with a quick connector. When one runs out, I just disconnect the hose and re-connect it to a full tank and we're under way again in a minute.
