    Hello everyone,
    I’m just getting started in hotshot and funds are a bit tight right now, so I can’t quite afford an auxiliary tank or a larger undercarriage tank at the moment. I was considering carrying some VP Motorsport jugs of diesel so I’m not stopping at stations so often. I’m based in FL, but will be traveling interstate. Any insight on the legalities of this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for any and all help.

    Yea, don't get in the business. If you can't afford a few hundred dollars for an aux tank then you are going to go bankrup the first time something happens anyway.

    I’ll sell you my 60gallon aluminum with a small toolbox on top for cheap.

    I’m based out of Houston, don’t know where you are but I run stuff all over. I could book a load to you if everything is right

    Did the same thing and my first inspection the officer asked me if it was piss in the cans. He wrote that I was hauling hazmat but I didn't get a ticket for it.
