Flo n' Go Duramax Fuel Caddy - 14-Gallon Capacity, Model# 06792
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.

Good with a few modifications
Good product but needed a few modifications. As other reviews stated, the hose does easily kink, and the siphon handle does not work well.
I bought this to replace a similar product that I have used for years and finally wore out. I role it onto my trailer and bring it to job sites instead of 3, 5gallon cans. Close to the tank, I spliced in a better hose and put a ball valve on the hose 6" from the end for a shut off and flow control. By having it elevated on the trailer, it works good with a very good flow rate.

Home or On the Go Fuel Station
This well made product provides a safe/handy way to store fuel. I use the fuel caddy to store non-ethanol premium gas for my power tools, ride mower and boat.
Portability makes this product ideal for off-road motorcycle, ATV and snow mobile use.
When full make sure the Duramax fuel caddy is higher than what you're fueling, because it uses a gravity flow system.

More on the ground than in the tank...
The handle leaks terribly. Finish pumping your fuel and set the handle on the tank and everything in the hose drains onto your lawn, floor, etc. A hook on the side of the tank to hang the handle would be a good idea.
The hose is too flimsy. You HAVE to keep the hose relatively straight or it will kink, stopping your fuel flow.
The tank does not empty well. You are stuck with 1/2 gallon or more at the bottom when you are done.

The only practical way to use this is to have the bottom of the fuel caddy well above the height of the tank you want to fill. The pump / siphon system is terrible. Waste of money!

Great for intended purpose.
I am using this as a fuel storage tank along with a few other gas cans. This is much smaller than the 6 other cans I keep around. The hose does link but the safety stop on the handle can be removed since is it put together with screws instead of it being welded together. Much easier to use instead of having to release it every time. The shut off valves could use a longer tab as access to the one that is on the take is recessed, even though I have small hands it's bothersome to try and shut it off. The valves are good quality and work great aposed to te safety on the handle.
I'm glad I got this and plan on using it for years to come.
