emply the barrels are not heavy. Even when the are filled you can lay them down and roll them no big deal. I was planning on getting a barrel dolly at some point, but they are expensive. You can probably fill them on the trailer. We will find out

yeah I was thinking about doing that as well, just putting it on it's side and rolling it, but I wasn't sure since I think filled they weigh somewhere around 400+lbs I think, I was also just thinking a reagular dolly with solid wheels would be ok rather than a barrel dolly if they are expensive haha. maybe I'll do some test runs filling it with water and get a decent idea of what it will be like with E in it haha

a regular dolly won't work good. The platform that you slide under it is only like 1/32" thich. It will bend easy. (ask me how I know) You would have to reinforce it to make it work. and even then it will only kind of work.

Costco is selling those bad ass fuel containers that have a pump on them and everything, but they aren't meant for E85.

What containers are you guys using and where do you get them?

And why the hell don't we have E85 in SL county?! Any gas stations around that at least have plans to add E85?

well yeah those containers I think have the electric type pumps which I heard you don't want to use, or maybe as long as it's grounded, but either way, I have a 55 gal drum that my dad had and didn't need and a hand crank pump that he also gave me.

and yeah I have been searching for stations that might have plans but have also kind of gave up cause all the places I asked said there wasn't enough reason for them to sell E85 so they don't. who knows maybe one day they'll get smart and start selling it, especially with all these felxfuel cars out now you'd think they would want to start bringing it to SL but who knows.

most older stations would have to convert a take from something they all ready sell to e85. which fuel would they get rid or? There aren't enough people who burn e85 to make it worth their while I am sure.

^^yeah that's what I didn't understand but the girl I talked to basically said when Holiday bought it they didn't want it haha, and I think they weren't getting enough busniess for the E. I asked if she thought they would ever bring it back, but pretty much sounded like it wasn't ever going to happen.

someone in the RMIC has to know someone that is either owner or fairly high at a gas station.........anyone?!?!

So where do I get containers that are safe for E85? Really don't want to waste fuel driving to Orem to fill up!

yeah that will just defeat the purpose haha, but look on ksl for any used good condition drums, or you can probably buy a drum filled and all from one of the stations and then just keep refilling that, but I am thinking that their drums wont be all that cheap, I was even considering using one of those big blue 55 gal plastic drums from cal ranch or off ksl.

well is a metal drum going to cause any problems then? or if I just don't fill it to the max, I was thinking I was going to be able to fill about 52 gals or so to leave some room for the expanding and contracting. that should be ok shouldn't it?

Just got my 2012 STI!

Mooches 66 no longer sells high octane.
I haven't checked renegade sports. But they have moved since the post states.
1900 S 800 W

I had a buddy that worked at the Logan airport 10 years back. He got high octane there. Don't know if they sell to the public.
The address is roughly 600 West 2600 North.

my atv trailer has a ramp. Stopping them after they start rolling is my concern And I wouldn't want to load them full. Fill them on the trailer would be ideal.

Just went by there and they don't sell 100 octane anymore. But they have clear gas.

I also know that the Chevron in Clearfield no longer does E85. Do we have any more information as to places that do higher octane fuels still?
