    Thought about the same thing but that big caddy still has to get in and out of the truck.

        20 gal is approx 140 lbs right? Do you have smooth level path from your tank to dock? That’s a decent weight move around if your back is bad. Although not having to lift in / out of truck would make it interesting.
        4.5 gal in the 5 gal can isn’t too bad / heavy.
        I’d see how much gas you actually burn first, since you have ski boat vs wake barge.

          I have a cart that holds the caddy. The cart loads into a hitch receiver and has a built in ramp.

          I haven't used it yet because I picked it up late last season.

          I can post some pics if anyone is interested.

              2 - 5gal VP Racing jugs and flexible pour spouts.

              Carrying them down to the dock and into/out of the truck helps build a strong slalom grip.

                This is the best setup I've found.

                Loading and unloading 15 gallons is about 95lbs, but since you are just going right to the cart it's not that bad. My seven year old daughter can empty the can with the hand pump in about 6 minutes. Faster and beats wrestling with race cans of you are needing more than 10 gallons.

                  What would that ole bat have done if you told her you were going to shove the fuel nozzle up her ____ if she didn't back off?
                  Have you arrested for filling your gas jug at Costco??

                    this times about 100, but for me i go with the generic ones if you have a rural king near by theirs are basically the same but only $20 each.

                    whatever you go with stay away from the flow n'go jugs with wheels. My sister had one of those and it was the worst thing ever. never stopped leaking, you always had to have it higher than the tank because gravity fed. it just sucked.

                      Fill 5 gallon cans and then use this funnel.

                        The one with the hand pump- how long to pump 20 gallons?
                        No one show you the squeeze the can trick?

                          Tractor Supply sells really nice dump jugs with flex hoses, too

                            Yes it is grass all the way to the dock. ramp with a very little slope down to the dock.

                            Thanks for the input.

                                I use a Flo-n-Go, which holds 14 gallons and is on wheels. I took the worthless handle pump off, and use a siphon shaker and it works great. I also have six 5 gallon jugs that I also use for the boat and the jet-ski's.

                                First thing I do when I get to the cabin is load up the above cans, and run to the gas station and fill up....this is usually enough to last all weekend.

                                If money isn't a concern -- Gas Dingo is the answer...
