How do y'all fuel your Skeeters?

If the fuel is in the truck bed the truck bed needs to be grounded to avoid static discharge.

I certainly agree that all refueling precautions, including grounding, should be observed.

Transporting fuel in an authorized container is legal.

Casey et al, check out Northern Tools (google it). They have a number of options for transferring fuel. Don't remember all but I think they offered a 14 gal (14?!) tank, on wheels w/ a hand pump. Leave it in the pickup or use a ramp or use a motor lift/cheery picker, or a bunch of pulleys and rope. We're talking something like 85 to 100 lbs, +/-.
Anybody: what is the overhang measurement for the rotor in front of the fuselage. If we are loading the machine into a trailer, up a ramp, will the rotor be hitting the top of a trailer ? Myrtle does it so it must work but I'm curious. What is the max height when on the wheels ? This will determine the minimum opening measurement for storage. The specs say 82" I think, but that what you see to be the case ?
Will (I'm ready to get going !)
