IN PA:I heard that ! We were in NJ summer before last and I got scolded pretty good for trying to pump my own gas.
Thank You Ray!!A fine looking setup John, Bear Jr's doing a good job taking care of his old man! RAY
Thank You Rich!!That's awesome . I could use one of those myself . I'd put a tapper next to it so I could fill me up too !
That’s awesome!My own Gas Station
I figured this might be a good time to change the subject a Little.
Just had to show you guys what Bear Jr did for his Old Crippled Up Dad.
For the last couple years, I’ve been having trouble handling my 5 Gal and 7 Gallon Gas Cans for filling my Tractor & my Cub Mower.
So Bear Jr got me this thing (below).
It holds 14 gallons of gas, and there’s no electric or Batteries.
It works purely on gravity.
He was going to put it in my garage, but I told him I wasn’t crazy about having it set up in a building attached to my house & sleeping quarters.
So he rigged it up in his Tower Shop Pole Barn.
He mounted it inside the end towards my house.
Then he drilled a hole in the steel siding & put in a Grommet for the hose to go through.
He mounted a box above it, and a hanger for the gas pump handle.
Now all I have to do is drive down the hill from my yard, pull up next to it, and Fill-er-Up.
Works Great !!
Here's what it looks like on the wall. That's Bear Jr inside:

Thank You Ray!! Yup--He's good to the Old Man!!---And to his Mom too!!
Great Son! And Thanks for the Like.
Respect for your elders and taking care of mom and dad, that's how it was for me John, nice to see in these times. Seems some still have that quality to learn, tho they most likely will at some point, maybe. RAY

Thank You Norm!!That'll certainly make life easier.
Thank You John!!Very nice I like it! Like Chop said I would have him install a tap next to it. That way you can get a nice cold beer and a full tank at the same time!
Thank You Mike!!Haha. That's awesome !!
Thank You Steve!!Very cool set up Bear!
Thank You RG !!That's great Bear. I had considered getting on of those gas caddies for my toys. I decided not to do it because of weight.
That’s a pretty cool set up Bear, much easier than having to lug around gas cans! I could use one of them myself, it would sure beat taking cans down to the gas station.
How much you charge for regular? Gas hit $3.15/gal today here.
Thank You 912 !!Nice rig . I sure hope my kids take of care of me like Bear Jr . You've done a fine job there Mr Bear !
You should have told them you were in a hurry to deliver some Jersey Flounders to a PA Bear !!I heard that ! We were in NJ summer before last and I got scolded pretty good for trying to pump my own gas.
we have one station in Tyler that is Full Service their gas is always a little higher. But a lot of people trade there because they can't do all the checks themselves , I may have to start trading there
