Flo n' Go Duramax Fuel Caddy - 14-Gallon Capacity, Model# 06792
Duramax Fuel Caddy
The Duramax Fuel Caddy is the only product I know of that will store and transport 14 gal of fuel in this price range. It is handy to use, easy to move about on a hard surface, and does the job as intended. The shut off valves keep fuel and vapors in the container under all conditions. The drawbacks are that the wheels are not large enough to move a full container on a gravel or rough surface. The fuel nozzle has a sort of pump that is supposed to allow for filling a tank if the container is on the ground. The pump device is useless and shouldn't even be offered. It just adds bulk to the hose end. I have to lift the container up on a stand, wire the nozzle handle open, and let the fuel drain into the tank to be filled. Use the tank shut off valve to stop fuel flow. However even with that it is a useful device. I bought one, my neighbor bought two and I'll buy another on the next sale.

Good product with known flaws
- Very good vent control, seals up tight (no fumes in vehicle when transporting gasoline)
- Good quality (tank, cap, vent, control valves)
- Rolls well over smooth surfaces
- Hand pump is useful if you have no choice but to pump "uphill."
- No alternatives in its price range
- Low flow rate regardless of pumping or gravity.
- Small wheels no good over any kind of rough terrain
- Low quality hose kinks too easily.
I'm going to extend the axle and put larger wheels on, and set up some sort of quick disconnect for the hand pump, since it's a huge bottleneck when fueling by gravity.
Overall, I like this product, especially for the sale price + discount coupon. It beats using 5 gallon jugs.

Great idea, poor design
Super idea but forgot to test before going into production. Great to haul 14 gallons at on time but I am short person and you have to bend over to haul 100 lbs of gas. Make handle taller. Hose is to small and to flimsy. Kinks and makes hard to use. Needs to be larger to have more volume. Hand hurts by the time you finish filling your tank. It is gravity feed. With my boat lift, the tank has to be set up in the air. Needs a collapsing stand to get up in the air. Don't know how you would fill a car. To fill boats and jet ski, it is a two person job.

Now that I an 70 I need to start making things a little easier. I can fit the caddy on my SUV cargo carrier to take it to the station to fill it. When I get home I can back up to hanging location to attach a chain hoist and raise it to a hook on the wall. No more spilling and carring gas cans around. Works great to fuel lawn tractor, ATV, snow blower and anything else.

Great for refueling the camp generator and four wheelers. Just pull the truck up next to what you're refueling and let gravity do all the work.

Good idea with poor execution
This tank holds 14 Gallons of gas but only 12 can be extracted. The wheels fell off mine repeatedly.
The hose kinks throughout it's length and at the handle. I had to cut the line and install brass "stents" in several places to keep the gas flowing. The flow is very slow at best. I hold the pump handle open with zip ties when refueling my boat as it can take nearly 30 minutes to drain the 12 gallons from the tank. You would be much better off to buy three 5 gallon gas cans. This product is not worth the money.

No Rollie Pollie
Two things wrong with this product. #1 The wheels did not roll. That is kinda of an issue when full of fuel. I removed both of them, oiled the axil and replaced. At least it works now but don't tighten up the nuts all the way or the wheels won't turn. #2 Works better from an elevated position. Other than that, works great.

This was bought for my elderly Mother who mows her own large yard but shouldn't be lifting gas jugs. The son in law keeps it filled and she can pull up to it and gas up the mower easily..

What was I thinking ?
I read the reviews on this product and purchased it anyway. Opened the box and was impressed with the quality of the "can" itself . Filled 'er up after adding the appropriate amount of marine oil , paid top dollar for 100% GAS and then the fun began.
Sat it on the ground to fuel my pontoon boat. For a 56 year old woman , I impressed myself . Didn't throw any body parts out. Followed the video to a T . Pumped away .... milking a wild goat would have been as entertaining . Perhaps more productive as well. The first time I actually got the syphon to work was when the nozzle was no longer in the pontoon boat's tank , but pointed at my shoes. Success ! Momentarily . If I had all day to hang out watching water boil , I'd have been in the kitchen. The "safety device" on the handle makes a one handed squeeze to the trigger almost impossible. After 5 minutes or so , I grudgingly gave up and sat the still full flo and no go on the tailgate of the truck , pulled out the pontoon boat's boarding ladder , and wrestled the no go to the top step in hopes of syphoning some 100% gas into the pontoon boat before darkness fell. FINALLY got enough gas into the boat through a lovingly kinked hose to know that Mr no go was heading back to the store . NORTHERN TOOL was great ~ no return hassles . I'd rather milk a heard of wild goats . Flo and Go.... what a cute little idea.

I like it very much
After reading all the reviews I still ordered it. It works
Great except for one thing. They should have made
It so the drain gets all the gas out. It leaves about a
Quart in it and it would be perfect it they made the plastic
Lower at the drain, other than that I really like it.
