I am making progress. Too many projects going at the same time! I tend to roll that way.

The inside got degreased and the straps are done. The next phase will be making the dollie/lifting base. (I cut corners due to costs)

It should work OK. The tank is finally on wheels and ready for fuel. The lifting frame is my hold up now.

Too many irons in the fire.

I have a 165-gallon Roth tank in my garage to fuel the BX and my 4-cylinder Lister Petter generator. The problem is that the price of fuel has skyrocketed and getting it filled requires a truck to come to the home. My old fuel oil dealer who used to supply my inground tank has said that if he has a delivery in the neighborhood he will stop by. He hasn't been by in 2 years. The last price that I saw for fuel oil was $3.65 a gallon. I will continue to use 5-gallon cans filled with 3 gallons of fuel till I get the tank filled. I like to have enough fuel on hand to keep the generator running for 7 - 10 days if the power goes out.
