Rack Holds 3 Fuel Tanks
Iowa farmer Tim Renger says he saved a lot of space inside his “fuel shed” by building a wood rack to hold 3 big tanks. “It isn’t anything fancy, but it saves floor space and keeps the tanks in a small area just inside the door on a level cement floor and out of the weather.”
    Renger built the rack so his 100-gal. and 250-gal. gasoline tanks would rest on a sturdy platform directly above a 500-gal. diesel tank. The rack has 4 sturdy corner posts that he made by tripling 2 by 4’s. He attached 2 by 4’s to the posts to hold the tanks.
    Renger’s setup is clean and efficient, with the pump and meter for the diesel tank located at one end of the setup and the motor, pump and meter for the gasoline mounted just behind it. Both pumps have in-line filters and hoses are held neatly on 2 special brackets (taken off an old IH combine) that keep the hoses from kinking when they’re not in use.
    Renger says he likes to keep things neat and the rack is a good way to minimize the amount of space needed for 3 tanks and to keep the hoses off the floor.
